This course provides an introduction and overview of Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular wireless technology. LTE is one of the next generation wireless networks, designed to provide spectrum efficiency, additional capacity, and a platform that supports the ever-increasing demand for a rich multimedia user experience. In this course, the motivations for deploying LTE are discussed by examining its advantages over current 2G and 3G systems. LTE features are then discussed in terms of the wireless standards that initially define the technology, along with a presentation of how the standards define an evolution toward true 4th Generation (4G) systems. Brief technical overviews are presented of key LTE building blocks, such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO). In addition, LTE network topology and Downlink/Uplink operations are described. Simple call flows are shown to illustrate the signaling and channel usage in several typical scenarios. Finally, voice over LTE and interoperability with other networks are discussed.
Technical knowledge of 3G standards highly recommended.
• Recognize the motivations for deploying LTE.
• Name the building blocks of the LTE air interface.
• Describe the LTE network architecture.
• Explain the Downlink and Uplink Physical Layer.
• Identify basic signaling procedures.
• Describe how LTE interworks with other wireless networks.
• Illustrate how voice is handled in LTE.
• Classify the stages of LTE evolution
