LTE (Long Term Evolution) is standardized in 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) to provide higher data throughput as well as lower latency for various IP based services including web browsing, VoIP (Voice over IP), video streaming and so on. In this paper, we conduct the performance evaluation of LTE by indoor and outdoor experiments. We evaluated both TCP throughput and UDP transmission delay. For the TCP throughput evaluation, we observed the TCP- uplink-limit problem in which the uplink performance degradation in low SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) region affects on the downlink TCP throughput. We also analyzed the transmission delay of UDP packets. The delay distribution is affected by the traffic pattern, i.e. packet size and inter packet gap.
