    • 4G TECHNOLOGYAbstractThere is a great demand of userneeds for accessing moreinteractive multimedia applicationlike video on demand andseamless connection whilemoving from one network fromother without any disturbance andmaintaining the high data rate atlower cost. Current technologiesare able to provide the serviceslike multimedia applications butthey failed to provide high datarate, transmission cost andseamless connectivity on usermobility from one network toanother and at the same timemaintaining its Quality of Service(QoS). Some groups namely;3GPP, 3GPP2, and WiMAX areworking to achieve the keyaspects of the 4G technologywhich has been defined in IMTAdvance. The major componentsof the 4G technology are OFDMmodulation, transmission of datausing MIMO, use of smartantennas, SDR, IPV6 and IPMobility. It is expected that thegroups (3GPP, 3GPP2, andWiMAX) will achieve keycomponents and will successfullydeploy 4G technology by 2011.Contents1.
