An Introduction to LTE: LTE, LTE-Advanced, SAE and 4G Mobile by Christopher Cox

By Christopher Cox

An advent to LTE explains the know-how utilized by 3GPP long-term Evolution. The booklet covers the complete of LTE, either the suggestions used for radio verbal exchange among the bottom station and the cellular phone, and the concepts used for signalling conversation and information shipping within the developed packet middle. It avoids pointless aspect, focussing as an alternative on conveying a legitimate knowing of the full method.

The ebook is aimed toward cellular telecommunication pros, who are looking to comprehend what LTE is and the way it really works. it truly is valuable for engineers who're engaged on LTE, significantly people who are shifting from different applied sciences corresponding to UMTS and cdma2000, those people who are specialists in a single a part of LTE yet who are looking to comprehend the method as an entire, and people who are new to cellular telecommunications altogether. it's also suitable to these operating in non technical roles, resembling undertaking managers, advertising executives and highbrow estate experts. On finishing the ebook, the reader may have a transparent figuring out of LTE, and should manage to take on the extra specialized books and the 3GPP standards with self assurance.

Key positive aspects -

  • Covers the most recent advancements in unlock 10 of the 3GPP necessities, together with the hot services of LTE-Advanced
  • Includes references to person sections of the 3GPP requirements, to aid readers comprehend the rules of every subject prior to going to the requisites for extra particular details
  • Requires no past wisdom of cellular telecommunications, or of the mathematical suggestions that LTE makes use of for radio transmission and reception

10 An Introduction to LTE the growth of mobile data by the introduction of flat rate charging schemes that permitted unlimited data downloads. That led to a situation where neither developers nor users were motivated to limit their data consumption. As a result of these issues, 2G and 3G networks started to become congested in the years around 2010, leading to a requirement to increase network capacity. In the next section, we review the limits on the capacity of a mobile communication system and show how such capacity growth can be achieved.

In these systems, the air interface includes extra optimizations that are targeted at data applications, which increase the average rate at which a user can upload or download information, at the expense of introducing greater variability into the data rate and the arrival time. 2 Third Generation Systems The world’s dominant 3G system is the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS). UMTS was developed from GSM by completely changing the technology used on the air interface, while keeping the core network almost unchanged.

Similarly, each tracking area has two main identities. The 16 bit tracking area code (TAC) identifies a tracking area within a particular network. Combining this with the network identity gives the globally unique tracking area identity (TAI). Cells have three types of identity. The 28 bit E-UTRAN cell identity (ECI) identifies a cell within a particular network, while the E-UTRAN cell global identifier (ECGI) identifies a cell anywhere in the world. Also important for the air interface is the physical cell identity, which is a number from 0 to 503 that distinguishes a cell from its immediate neighbours.
