LTE Carrier Aggregation

E-UTRA CA configurations 36.101 (Rel 14 Dec 2016)

In Carrier Aggregation, two or more Component Carriers (CCs) are aggregated in order to support wider transmission bandwidths
A UE may simultaneously receive or transmit on one or multiple CCs depending on its capabilities
CA is supported for both contiguous and non-contiguous CCs

eNb Up to 20 MHz Carrier 1 Up to 20 MHz Carrier 2 Up to 20 MHz Carrier 3 Up to 20 MHz Carrier 4 Up to 20 MHz Carrier 5 Carrier aggregated data pipe Up to 100 MHz
