backtotop.gifTraining Course Description


  • Course DescriptionThe main focus of this course is the evolution of the LTE system based on Release 8/9 to LTE Advanced based on Release 10 and beyond (Release 11).
  • The first sections include specifics of the LTE Advanced physical layer increasing the data rate per user in peak and average.
  • Different sections deal with the enhanced radio concepts of LTE Advanced, namely: carrier aggregation, enhanced multiple antenna techniques for downlink and uplink, coordinated multipoint transmission and reception (CoMP). Each of the features is presented in its own section with focus on the details of the control signaling (for example CSI-RS, PUCCH Formats, DCI Formats, ..). Because CoMP as part of Release 11 is still in progress of standardization, details like the enhanced PDCCH (ePDCCH) will only be covered partly.
  • The next sections discuss features which help to manage future LTE networks. This includes enhanced functionality of LTE Home Base Stations (HeNB), Heterogeneous Networks and LTE relays as well as using UE measurements to minimize drive tests. Special attention is put on features affecting the performance of UEs [for example the Almost Blank Subframe (ABS)].
  • One section deals with the relay node as new architectural element in the network. Especially the type 1 relay nodes will impose a challenge in terms of interference mitigation. The structure of the new Un interface (R-PDCCH, R-PDSCH) is discussed. The final part of this section deals with the relay node specific changes of the RRC protocol and how security aspects are addressed.
