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

By Christopher Cox

Following on from the profitable first version (March 2012), this publication provides a transparent rationalization of what LTE does and the way it really works. The content material is expressed at a structures point, supplying readers the chance to know the main elements that make LTE the recent subject among owners and operators around the globe. The publication assumes not more than a easy wisdom of cellular telecommunication platforms, and the reader isn't really anticipated to have any past wisdom of the complicated mathematical operations that underpin LTE.

This moment variation introduces new fabric for the present kingdom of the undefined, comparable to the hot positive factors of LTE in Releases eleven and 12, significantly coordinated multipoint transmission and proximity companies; the most brief- and long term ideas for LTE voice calls, specifically circuit switched fallback and the IP multimedia subsystem; and the evolution and present nation of the LTE industry. It additionally extends the various fabric from the 1st version, equivalent to inter-operation with different applied sciences reminiscent of GSM, UMTS, instant neighborhood quarter networks and cdma2000; extra positive aspects of LTE complicated, particularly heterogeneous networks and site visitors offloading; facts delivery within the developed packet center; insurance and capability estimation for LTE; and a extra rigorous therapy of modulation, demodulation and OFDMA. the writer breaks down the process into logical blocks, by means of at the start introducing the structure of LTE, explaining the
techniques used for radio transmission and reception and the final operation of the procedure, and concluding with extra really good themes equivalent to LTE voice calls and the later releases of the requisites. This methodical method allows readers to maneuver directly to take on the requisites and the extra complex texts with confidence.

The growth of mobile data was initially slow, but in the years leading up to 2010 its use started to increase dramatically. 5 shows measurements by Ericsson of the total traffic being handled by networks throughout the world, in petabytes (million gigabytes) per month [4]. The figure covers the period from 2007 to 2013, during which time the amount of data traffic increased by a factor of over 500. 5 Measurements of voice and data traffic in worldwide mobile telecommunication networks, in the period from 2007 to 2013.

3 Architecture of the core networks of UMTS and GSM Introduction 5 and tear down the phone calls. They respectively handle the traffic and signalling functions of two earlier devices, known as the mobile switching centre and the visitor location register (VLR). A typical network might just contain a few of each device. In the packet switched domain, gateway GPRS support nodes (GGSNs) act as interfaces to servers and packet data networks in the outside world. Serving GPRS support nodes (SGSNs) route data between the base stations and the GGSNs, and handle the signalling messages that set up, manage and tear down the data streams.

However, this system did not possess two of the advantages that its predecessor had done. Firstly, it was not backwards compatible with cdma2000, in the way that cdma2000 had been with IS-95. Secondly, it was no longer the only system that could operate in the narrow bandwidths that dominated North America, due to the flexible bandwidth support of LTE. Without any pressing reason to do so, no network operator ever announced plans to adopt the technology and the project was dropped in 2008. Instead, most cdma2000 operators decided to switch to LTE.
