EE's innovation in RAN has found it at the bleeding edge of new 5G deployments in the UK, being the first operator to deploy 5G NR carrier aggregation in a relatively widespread manner.

O2's latest flagship monopoles, Orion, are a mastermind in the mobile networking world, cramming two 5G carriers and tonnes of 4G bands into a single streetworks cabinet and monopole. It's a work of art.

MIMO is one of LTE's most important features. It allows eNodeBs to transmit more than one stream of data at the same time to double, triple, quadruple (or more!) data throughput.

While theoretical speed on different frequencies are identical on LTE, this is very rarely the case in the real world. Why is that?
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), Subcarriers, Resource Blocks and more in 4G and 5G

OFDM allows multiple subcarriers within resource blocks to overlap significantly while producing little to no interference, allowing 5G to use its frequency allocation far more effectively.

To provide mobile coverage to a large area, masts need to be deployed in sectors. This article provides an overview of the sectorisation process and the deployment patterns.

LTE functions on a wide range of frequencies called "bands", and are standardised across the world. These bands can operate in one of two duplexing modes, explained in this article.

4G and LTE are terms that are often use interchangeably, but there are some significant differences between them.
