LTE - Signaling & Protocol Analysis

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

LTE - Signaling & Protocol Analysis

  • How do attachment, session establishment and bearer setup work in LTE?
  • How does a circuit-switched fallback scenario look and which messages are exchanged among which network nodes when and why?
  • Can I obtain an e2e-scenario that explains how the PCRF authorizes and initiates a dedicated EPS-bearer establishment?
  • How are the LTE protocol stack entities organized and which channels are established between them?
  • How do the PDU's of MAC, PLC, PDCP, RRC, S1-AP and the X2-AP look like?
  • According to which guidelines MAC is scheduling the traffic and how is the flow control in between UE and eNodeB performed?
  • What are the benefits of multiplexing logical channels on transport blocks and to apply a flexible RLC PDU size?
  • What new security concepts are applied in PDCP?
  • What are the key differences of RRC in E-UTRAN vs RRC in UTRAN?
  • How do we interpret ASN.1 PER encoded call flows like in RRC and in S1-AP?
  • How the concept of the initial context setup procedure s allowing for a very low control plane latency?
  • How are system information messages structured and transmitted in LTE?
  • How is the interworking with cdma2000 embedded and realized in LTE?
  • What are the mechanisms to create a self-organizing network?
  • How do the various handover scenarios in LTE work?

Who should acquire this book?

  • Test engineers who need to understand the details of the LTE signaling protocols.
  • Design staff of handsets and E-UTRAN who requires a deep inside view of the LTE-related protocols.
  • 2nd and 3rd level troubleshooters who need to understand the LTE protocol stack in detail.
