The Long Term Evolution (LTE) supports peak data rates, higher bandwidth, reduced costs, improved coverage and capacity, integration and backward compatibility with the existing systems. These features are part of LTE-A release. One key feature is carrier aggregation. It refers to aggregation of existing component carriers to provide higher spectrum bandwidth. This supports deployment bandwidth of a maximum 100 MHZ and would help to maintain high user data speed of 500 Mbps uplink and 1 Gbps downlink. Bandwidth is very limited and expensive. But by using carrier aggregation, we are depending on existing bandwidth and hence efficiently using it. This paper provides an overview of types, compatibility and simulation results of carrier aggregation for different carriers
