Difference between LTE and CDMA
Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA):
In CDMA, one channel carries all transmissions simultaneously. There is neither division of bandwidth nor division of time. For example, if there are many people in a room all speaking at the same time, then also perfect reception of data is possible if only two person speak the same language. Similarly data from different stations can be transmitted simultaneously in different code languages.
Long Term Evolution:
LTE is the project name given to development of a high performance air interface for cellular mobile communication systems. It is used for advancing series of mobile telecommunications systems. It is a high-speed data networks. It is the fastest wireless network for smartphones and mobile devices.
Let’s see the difference Between LTE and CDMA:
|1||It is the 4G wireless broadband technology for high-speed access.||It is a set of protocols used in 2G and 3G wireless communications.|
|2||It uses Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) for transmission.||It uses a spread-spectrum multiple access technique for transmission|
|4||It requires a SIM card to authenticate the handset.||It mobile handsets do not support SIM cards.|
|5||It has better multi-path signal handling capability.||It is not good at multi-path signal handling.|
|6||It is a de-facto standard for high-speed wireless communication.||It is a set of protocols used in 2G and 3G wireless communication.|
