What is the webcast about:
After much anticipation, the fourth generation (4G) of cellular wireless is nearly upon us. The ITU Radiocommunication sector (ITU-R) have been working on their IMT-Advanced 4G program for some time and are now soliciting candidate technologies from the industry later this year. 3GPP will be submitting LTE-Advanced, an enhancement to basic Release 8 LTE.

This webcast will explain the scope and timing of the ITU 4G program and describe in some detail the major features of LTE-Advanced which will be standardized in Release 10 of the 3GPP specifications.
