What is CC (Component Carrier)?

Every aggregated carrier is alluded to as a component carrier, CC. Carrier aggregation is utilized in LTE-Advanced in order to enhance the bandwidth and the bitrate. The component carrier can have a bandwidth of 1.4, 3, 5, 10, 15, or 20 MHz. Distinctive component carriers can be planned to give different coverage, i.e. different cell sizes. In the case of inter-band carrier aggregation, the component carriers will experience distinctive path loss, which increments with expanding frequency.
