LTE Whitepapers

LTE for utilities - supporting smart grids

in Whitepaper, Ericsson, LTE

The introduction of smart meters and smart grid sensors demands a cost-effective and easily deployed communications solution. Laboratory and field tests have demonstrated that LTE networks successfully meet the technical requirements for smart grid communications.

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.

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. 

LTE Broadcast - A revenue enabler in the mobile media era

in Whitepaper, Qualcomm, LTE

This Qualcomm paper explores the revenue opportunities and cost benefits MNOs can realize through the implementation of LTE Broadcast, a mobile broadcast solution that complements LTE networks.

5G Radio Access

in Whitepaper, 5G, Ericsson, HSPA, LTE

5G will enable the long-term Networked Society and realize the vision of unlimited access to information for anyone and anything.

Supporting Wireless Video Growth and Trends

in Whitepaper, 4G Americas, LTE

Video is increasingly becoming one of the most pervasive technologies in terms of everyday usage, both for entertainment and in the enterprise environments. Mobile video is responsible for a majority of the growth seen in mobile broadband data volume.

Mission Critical Mobile Broadband: Practical standardisation & roadmap considerations

in Whitepaper, TCCA, LTE

This document has been produced by the TETRA and Critical Communications Association (TCCA) Critical Communications Broadband Group (CCBG) to provide supporting information and guidelines for critical communications users, operators and other interested parties who are considering the implementation of ission critical mobile broadband services.

LTE Release 12 - taking another step toward the Networked Society

in Whitepaper, 3GPP Release 12, Ericsson, LTE

The wireless communication systems of the future will have to enable access to information and sharing of data anywhere and anytime for anyone and anything. As a consequence of this, the systems of tomorrow will have to overcome the following three main challenges:

LTE Device Ecosystem: The Future Brought to Life

in Whitepaper, RCR Wireless, LTE

The number of LTE devices and manufacturers is exploding. This special report explores how the transition to LTE networks is changing the device ecosystem from design to test and repair, and the factors that affect the successful LTE device launch.
