The recent global increase in mobile data traffic has service providers examining new ways to meet this traffic demand. While the licensed spectrum is the main way of providing data services, the available spectrum in the licensed band is limited and expensive. The Unlicensed band, on the other hand, has a vast amount of available spectrum (> 400 MHz), together in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. Based on the link performance, medium access control, and advanced scheduling algorithms, LTE is an efficient way of leveraging the unlicensed spectrum by service providers. Depending on the regulation requirements, LTE in the unlicensed band can be deployed as LTE-U (unlicensed) or as LAA (licensed assisted access). However, deploying LTE in the Unlicensed band interferes with the existing technologies that use the same frequency band like Wi-Fi. It is unclear to what extent this interference impacts both legacy technologies and LTE-U/LAA. This thesis surveys the research that has been done until now in this field and compares the evaluations of the performance of LTE and Wi-Fi and the issues that arise when they coexist.
