In this paper, we investigate the impact of jamming threats on the performance of LTE networks. First, we develop a three dimensional theoretical space to explore various jamming attacks. Next, we construct a set of attack scenarios by utilizing the dimensions of this space.
To observe the impact onLTE network performance, we use ns-3 to implement the scenarios and to evaluate the attacks based on standard network metrics. The results demonstrate that our investigated jamming attacks can introduce significant performance degradation into LTE networks.
