LTE Whitepapers

5G radio access – capabilities and technologies

The capabilities of 5G wireless access must extend far beyond previous generations of mobile communication. Examples of these capabilities include very high data rates, very low latency, ultra-high reliability, energy efficiency and extreme device densities, and will be realized by the.

5G Network Transformation

5G Network Transformationto outlines the new heights of innovation in transforming both the radio and core networks for 5G technologies and the work being done by numerous organizations worldwide. The network architecture for 4G is connection-oriented and based on centralized mobility anchor points.

5G Services & Use Cases

5G Americas, the industry trade association and voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas, today announced the publication of 5G Services and Use Cases, an insightful industry report on 5G technology addressing new trends in a broad range of use case categories and business models with disparate technical requirements and mapping them to 5G capabilities.

5G Top Ten Use Cases

The white paper focuses its analysis on industry reliance on 5G and industry value in the 5G era. According to the white paper, industries requires higher bandwidth and lower latency will be more reliant on 5G; and the larger the market space is, the more commercial value a service can deliver.

Inside 3GPP Release 13: Understanding the Standards for LTE-Advanced Enhancements: 2016 Update

There are more than 7.2 billion wireless connections, including 1.45 billion LTE connections, around the world today that are operating with the technology standards developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) [Ovum].

Understanding the Interference Mitigation Techniques

Interference is inherent to any LTE-A HetNet deployment; LTE-A offers a variety of complex and advanced techniques at both the network and the device level to mitigate this interference. 

5G systems – enabling industry and society transformation

A digital transformation brought about through the power of connectivity is taking place in almost every industry. This transformation sets the scene for the next generation of wireless access – 5G – systems that are set for commercial availability sometime around 2020.

Bringing Network Function Virtualization to LTE

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) provides a new path that can increase the flexibility required by mobile service providers and network operators to adapt and accommodate this dynamic market environment.

VoLTE and RCS Technology Evolution & Ecosystem

Voice call performance measurements in 2G, 3G and VoLTE in LTE networks

The whitepaper compares wireless Voice calls in LTE networks using Circuit Switched Fallback (CSFB) and  Voice over LTE (VoLTE) – based on actual measurements. Further, the whitepaper compares CSFB and VoLTE to legacy technologies such as 2G and 3G. CSFB provides a mechanism to transfer an initiated voice call to legacy circuit-switched networks.
