LTE Technical Overview
LTE is fast being deployed as the global 4G cellular technology. Its importance is growing rapidly and there is a need for many engineers, people in marketing and sales, technicians and many more to have a good LTE technical overview. This technical overview of LTE has been designed to provide exactly what is needed for anyone associated with the technology.
The delegate attending LTE Technical Overview training programme will gain an in depth appreciation of the architecture and operation of the LTE system including the OFDM based radio interface.
To introduce the topic, the business side of LTE is overed along with its evolution and the growing need for fast effective mobile broadband are examined. Comparisons are made with the previous technologies including HSPA and WiMAX.
LTE service possibilities are discussed and then used to describe the capabilities required of the radio and core network components. The architecture of the release 8 LTE network, SAE – System Architecture Evolution is explained and the functions of each network node, MME S-GW, P-GW, eNB and interfaces X2 and S1 are discussed.
The LTE radio interface is described including the use of OFDM / OFDMA / SC-FDMA and other technologies used including MIMO and interference management. These concepts are explained, as well as other radio related topics such as IMT spectrum allocations. The LTE protocol stack and LTE procedures are also covered.
