Keep backhaul front of mind for LTE / LTE-A

in Video, Backhaul, LTE-Advanced, LTE

LTE and LTE-Advanced promise a far better experience for the end user. But these technologies introduce new challenges in the backhaul network, which plays a critical role in maintaining high quality of experience. Listen to the podcast to learn more about backhaul considerations for LTE and LTE-A.

Signalling in EPC/LTE: CSFB and SMSoSGs

in Tutorial, CSFB, SMS, SMSoSGs, EPC, LTE

“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.

VoLTE Basics: SMS

in Tutorial, SMS, VoLTE, LTE

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.

LTE/EPS Technology: Core Network

in Tutorial, EPS, presentation, LTE

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 E-UTRAN: X2 Interface

in Tutorial, presentation, E-UTRAN, LTE

“Signalling in E-UTRAN/LTE” course focuses on signalling between EPS/LTE nodes within E-UTRAN. During the course all protocols and signalling procedures on all interfaces (i.e. Uu, X2 and S1) within E-UTRAN are presented in details. The course also describes overview of EPS architecture and system wide signalling procedures, including EPC - E-UTRAN interworking.

3GPP Interviews at LTE Africa 2013

in Video, 3GPP, LTE

Interviews with two African officials, on the prospects and challenges facing LTE in the region. The last part of the video features Atle Monrad, CT Chairman, giving his thoughts on the priorities for the EPC evolution - with an eye on the differences encountered in Africa.

3GPP Release 11: Understanding the Standards for HSPA+ and LTE-Advanced Enhancements

in Whitepaper, 3GPP, 3GPP Release 11, 4G Americas, LTE-Advanced, HSPA, LTE

This 4G Americas whitepaper is intended to provide a brief review of some of the key specifications in 3GPP Release 11. 

3GPP Rel-11 standards for HSPA+ and LTE-Advanced were frozen in December 2012 with the core network protocols stable in December 2012 and radio access network (RAN) protocols stable in March 2013.

Carrier Aggregation - (One) Key Enabler for LTE-Advanced

in Video, Webinar, Carrier Aggregation, LTE-Advanced, Rohde & Schwarz, LTE

This webinar from November 2012 focuses on carrier aggregation, the feature that is most in demand within the LTE-Advanced feature set. It also outlines how carrier aggregation is supported by leading test and measurement solutions for LTE and LTE-Advanced from Rohde & Schwarz.

Interview: Telstra CEO, David Thodey

in Video, Telstra, LTE

The head of Australia's largest mobile operator tells Mobile World Live why carriers need to move into the apps space. And he reveals more about the company's progress with LTE rollout and Telstra's small cell strategy.

LTE- Advanced (3GPP Rel.11) Technology Introduction

in Whitepaper, 3GPP, 3GPP Release 11, Rohde & Schwarz, LTE

Since its introduction, LTE is continuously worked on in terms of improvements. 3GPP groups added technology components into so called releases. Initial enhancements were included in 3GPP Release 9, followed by more significant improvements in 3GPP Release 10, also known as LTE-Advanced. 

Microwave Backhaul for LTE, HetNet, and Small Cell Networks

in Video, Webinar, Backhaul, HetNet, RCR Wireless, Small Cell, LTE

Has microwave backhaul for LTE and 3G networks run its course in the United States and internationally or will heterogenous networks and small cells create another surge in microwave backhaul demand?

T-Mobile: 4G LTE Now Covering Over 157 Million People

in Video, T-Mobile, 4G, LTE

CTO Neville Ray announces that T-Mobile's 4G LTEi network now reaches 157 million people across the United States - far exceeding the company's stated mid-year goal of reaching 100 million people. The advanced 4G network is live in 116 metropolitan areas.

LTE Advanced—The Global 4G Solution

in presentation, Qualcomm, LTE

Qualcomm believes that the next significant performance leap will come from heterogeneous networks, or HetNets, which bring the network closer to the user through low-power nodes such as pico and femto-cells. LTE Advanced uses adaptive interference management techniques to further improve the capacity and coverage of these HetNets.
