The 3GPP LTE standard is stable now in its first release (Release 8), and the question is how good its performance is in real-world scenarios. LTE is also a good base for further innovations, but it must be proven that they offer performance advantages for the price of their complexity. This article evaluates the performance of LTE Release 8 as a baseline and advanced concepts currently in discussion such as cooperative MIMO based on system-level simulations, and measurements in the laboratory and a multisite field testbed within the EASY-C project.
