ABSTRACT

The area of study proposed in this paper is the evaluation of the Quality of Service (QoS) provided by a Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular data network. It is aimed to address the gap between the technical capabilities and the QoS experienced by the user. The analysis is based on the live data that are collected on commercial cellular network and compared against broadband wireless LAN. A methodology for QoS assessment based on a relatively small set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) is devised. The measured data are used to verify the proposed methodology.
