(2012). General format. Retrieved from http://www.wimaxforum.org/The3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)developed the3GPP Long-Term Evolution (LTE)standard for wireless communications technology. It is regarded as an evolution of theGlobal System for Mobile Communication (GSM) the Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems (UMTS) and other standards. It is also known as the 4G LTE. The competition among the carriers to support 4G LTE networks has been very fierce as evidenced by TV commercials targeting smartphone users. Many smartphones run on 3G networks.Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:1. Compare and contrast 3G wireless networks to 4G networks in terms of:a. Services and applicationsb. Network architecturec. Data throughputd. User perceptions2. Distinguish between the 4G LTE 4G WiMax and 4G WiBro networks based on:a. Upload and download speedsb. User perceptionsc. Backward compatibilityd. Service availability3. Identify why the competition between the 4G LTE carriers has been so fierce and describe the benefits of this competition to the subscribers.4. In January 2012 Verizon stated that 4G LTE is available in 190 cities covering 200 million American subscribers. According to AT&T s Website they had plans for covering 20 million Americans in 15 markets by end of 2011. Conclude why Verizon is able to cover more markets than AT&T.5.
