A node implementing a connection between the EPC and an external network, such as IMS, an ISP, or a corporate network.
Long Term Evolution is a high-speed data communications specification for mobile phones and represents a step forward from the HSPA standard for high-speed data used on existing W-CDMA 3G networks. It aims for transmission speeds of 100 Mbps downstream and 50 Mbps upstream or better, and is currently in the standardization process within the 3GPP, the standards-setting organization for W-CDMA.
