Long Term Evolution (LTE) is comprised of the E-UTRA network, which uses Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technology and the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), an all-IP core network. This framework enables a 3GPP system to migrate to a packet-optimized system that supports multiple Access Technologies (3GPP and non-3GPP), higher data rates, and lower latencies. The course covers both TDD and FDD content and can be customized to cover only TDD or FDD if desired. This course provides an in-depth discussion of the LTE air interface. The class begins with an overview of the LTE/E-UTRAN network architecture and protocols and introduces OFDM, the key technology of LTE. Downlink and Uplink channels, signals, and operations for the FDD implementation are explained. This course also provides an overview of the access stratum radio protocols: PHY, MAC, RLC, PDCP, and RRC. Options for handling voice with LTE are also discussed. The course is based on Release 8 and Release 9 of the 3GPP specifications.
