LTE from A-Z - Reloaded

Some of your questions that will be answered by this book:


  • What is LTE and why it is introduced in the first place?
  • What are the requirements for LTE and how do they differentiate from those of UMTS?
  • What are the key characteristics of LTE’s (E-UTRAN’s) layer 1 and layer 2/3?
  • How does the LTE and SAE (System Architecture Evolution) evolved mobile radio network look like?
  • What key development trends are manifested in LTE?
  • How do the basic physical layer technologies of LTE like OFDM, MIMO, HARQ, and AMC work?
  • How the physical frame structure is facilitating the use of a flexible bandwidth allocation?
  • How do the digital signal processing chains of uplink and downlink look like and what is their difference with respect to conventional mobile radio systems?
  • How the physical layer procedures work in LTE?
  • What are the tasks of the higher layer protocol entities and functions of the enhanced node B: MAC, RLC, PDCP, RRC, and RRM?
  • What are the used concepts for mobility in LTE?
  • How does LTE manage the most relevant scenarios like RRC connection establishment attachment, PDP context establishment and hand over?
  • How in detail the TCP packets travel from the SAE GW to the UE?

Who should acquire this book?

  • The student needs to have previous exposure to L1 design and concepts of standards like UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA and WiMAX (IEEE 802.16)
  • The student needs to have a good background of mobile radio protocols, operation, and parameters. UMTS L2 and L3 experience would be favorable.
  • Previous knowledge of UMTS-details from our training courses “HSPDA Design Details & System Engineering” and “HSPUA Design Details & System Engineering” would be necessary to understand the benefits of E-UTRAN compared to UTRAN.
  • In addition, we advise our course “UMTS – Signaling & Protocol Analysis (UTRAN & UE)” to be taken in advance.
  • Previous design and/or testing experience with WCDMA-networks and/or User Equipment is favorable.
