Why this LTE and 4G course?

This overview course describes the motivations, timescales and goals of LTE as well as identifying the technical features of UMTS that will change to support LTE. This includes, notably, the core network which has its own evolution plan, SAE, System Architecture Evolution. New or changed areas described include the use of MIMO antenna systems, OFDM-based multiple access as well as the architectural changes necessary from UMTS to support SAE. The difference between 4G and LTE is explored.
