In this chapter, we provide a brief yet comprehensive overview of current Long Term Evolution (LTE) systems and beyond. We begin presenting the baseline technology and the underlying features of network architecture, protocols, and air interface introduced in the first LTE release back in 2008. Having the basics put in place, we move forward to discuss advanced features introduced and further developed throughout subsequent LTE releases. Our discussion takes into consideration even the still under discussion LTE Release 13, which has in March 2016 its estimated freeze date.
