    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    3G Long Term Evolution (LTE) is an emerging and promising technology that aims at providing broadband ubiquitous Internet access and improving multimedia services. This is achieved through streamlining the system for packet
    services, since LTE is an all Internet Protocol (IP) based network. The fact that 3G LTE is a packet based network brings about some improvements in the form of higher bit rates, lower latencies, and a variety of service offerings. However, some technical challenges are expected to arise when voice traffic is transmitted
    over an LTE network. This has become an interesting area of research and different types of resource management schemes have been developed, which are quite challenging and complex.
