LTE UE Category and Class Definitions

 

A summary of the different LTE UE category parameters provided by the 3GPP Rel 8 standard is given in the tables below.

 

Category 1 2 3 4 5
Downlink 10 50 100 150 300
Uplink 5 25 50 50 75

LTE UE category data rates

Category 1 2 3 4 5
Downlink
QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAM
Uplink
QPSK, 16QAM
QPSK,
16QAM,
64QAM

LTE UE category modulation formats supported

Category 1 2 3 4 5
2 Rx diversity
Assumed in performance requirements across all LTE UE categories
2 x 2 MIMO
Not
supported
Mandatory
4 x 4 MIMO
Not supported
Mandatory

LTE UE category MIMO antenna configurations
Note: Bandwidth for all categories is 20 MHz.

所以如果只是 10MHz 2×2 MIMO, 只有 Downstream 75MBits/s Upstream 20Mbits 左右的速度, 只需要用到 Category 3. 再高也沒有必要
