WBT Description

  • This Web Based Training addresses the needs of everybody who needs to understand the technology and concepts of LTE as the future 4G standard of 3GPP.
  • After the general introduction to 4G standards is given, the Web Based Training starts with an introduction of the requirements of LTE.
  • The following part presents important characteristics of the key layer 1 technologies: OFDM and MIMO.
  • The Web Based Training continues with a description of the LTE L1. Among others we evaluate in detail the application of essential technologies like OFDMA for the downlink and SC-FDMA for the uplink in LTE as well as the LTE frame structure.
  • This part concludes with the discussion of the physical layer procedures.
  • The next chapter evaluates in detail the higher layer protocols of E-UTRAN.
  • This chapter is presenting the initial context setup procedure of LTE and is describing the data flow of a TCP/IP packet trough the protocol layers.
