  • Multiple input multiple output (MIMO) technologies introduced in LTE such as spatial multiplexing, transmit diversity, and beamforming are key components for providing higher peak rate at a better

  • Whatever the name – next generation LTE, LTE-Advanced or LTE Rel-10 – the next step in LTE evolution allows operators to introduce new technologies without putting exis

  • Telesystem Innovations  - This article presents an overview of the LTE physical layer with a focus on essential aspects of the physical layer for FDD mode, which is the dominant mode of operat

  • Ericsson - Unlike previous 3GPP wireless technologies, LTE has no circuit-switched bearer to support voice, so carrying voice over LTE requires a migration to a voice over IP (VoIP) solution – commonly under the umbrella of IMS. Until this migration occurs, LTE-capable handsets need to revert to 2G or 3G for voice calls: an approach that is not ideal in the long term.

  • Unlike previous 3GPP wireless technologies, LTE has no Circuit Switched (CS) bearer to support voice, so carrying voice over LTE requires a migration to a Voice over IP (VoIP) solution.

  • There is considerable pressure to define the key requirements of 5G, develop 5G standards, and perform technology trials as quickly as possible.
    Normally, these activities are best done in series but there is a desire to complete these tasks in parallel so that commercial deployments of 5G can begin by 2020.

  • The 3GPP evolution for the 3G mobile system created the new base station system, called Evolved UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) and a new core network, called Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as a result of two standardisation projects: Long Term Evolution (LTE) and System Architecture Evolution (SAE).

  • “Signalling in EPC/LTE” course focuses on signalling between EPS/LTE nodes within GPRS Tunnelling Protocol (GTP) based Evolved Packet Core (EPC)* network. During the course all protocols and signalling procedures on all interfaces (i.e.

  • The CS FallBack (CSFB)  in EPS enables the provisioning of voice and other CS-domain services (e.g. CS UDI video, LCS, USSD) by reuse of CS infrastructure when the UE is served by E-UTRAN. A CSFB enabled terminal, connected to E-UTRAN may use GERAN or UTRAN to connect to the CS-domain.

  • Although the commercialization of LTE technology began in end 2009, the technology is still being enhanced in order to meet ITU-Advanced requirements.
