LTE WiFi Aggregation (LWA)

The amount of data traffic carried over mobile networks will continue to grow. To meet these increasing traffic demands on the network, mobile operators need to focus on unlicensed spectrum. While licensed spectrum remains critical to mobile operators’ ability to deliver advanced services and user experience, unlicensed spectrum is becoming increasingly important to meet growing mobile traffic demand. Radisys’ Custom Development Services can help customize TOTALeNodeB to meet each service provider’s unique LWA deployment requirements and get to market faster.

LTE/WLAN Aggregation (LWA) has emerged as an alternative to LTE-U (LTE Unlicensed)/LAA (License Assisted Access) technologies. This paper discusses how LTE/WLAN Aggregation (LWA) is capable of leveraging legacy devices and base stations and the enhancements made to Radisys’ CellEngine™ TOTALeNodeB™ LTE small cell software to support LWA functionality.
