[LTE_101] LTE Essentials

Printer-friendly PDF version

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a 4th generation wireless network technology based on OFDM and MIMO. It provides much higher data rates (up to 300 Mbps) to users while reducing the net cost-per-bit, allowing wireless operators to deploy multimedia-rich Internet content over a wireless medium with seamless access anywhere at any time. This one day course provides an overview of LTE from both a technology and an application perspective. It gives an overview of the network architecture, the fundamental radio technologies such as OFDM and multiple antenna techniques, and the basic call setup procedures. The course discusses how LTE supports essential services such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE), and goes on to explore the key deployment considerations for LTE network. The course wraps up with a brief summary of the enhancements offered by the next step in LTE technology, LTE-Advanced.

Learning Objectives

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
• Identify the key goals and requirements of LTE
• Sketch the EUTRAN and EPC network architectures and explain the roles of the important nodes and interfaces
• Describe the key technical enhancements introduced in the LTE air interface and discuss how they contribute to higher capacity and performance
• List the steps involved in setting up and managing a typical LTE data session
• Explain the roles of LTE and IMS in delivering real—time services like VoLTE to subscribers
• Discuss the important considerations when planning and deploying LTE networks

Intended Audience

This course is intended for those in business non-engineering and technology functions who need to understand LTE, its key characteristics and its important capabilities.
