  • 4G Wireless Internet Communication Technology

    The mobile industry for wireless cellular services has grown at a rapid pace over the past decade. Similarly, Internet service technology has also made dramatic growth through the World Wide Web with a wire line infrastructure. The 4G system is a development initiative based on the currently deployed 2G/3G infrastructure, enabling seamless integration to emerging 4G access technologies. The path toward 4G networks should be incorporated with a number of critical trends to network integration for successful interoperability. Multiple Input Multiple Output/Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (MIMO/OFDMA)‐based air interface for beyond 3G systems are called 4G systems such as Long Term Evolution (LTE), Ultra Mobile Broadband (UMB), Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), or Wireless Broadband (WiBro).

  • Looking Towards 4G: LTE‐Advanced

    The baseline LTE radio access network (RAN) and evolved packet core (EPC) network were defined in 3GPP Release 8, which was functionally frozen in December 2008. This chapter summarizes important additions to the LTE specifications. These include the most significant changes to the 3GPP standard, which occurred in Release 10 for the support of LTE‐Advanced, 3GPP's submission to the international telecommunications union radiocommunication sector (ITU‐R) international mobile telecommunications (IMT)‐advanced‐Advanced (4G) program. Release 10 developed the 3GPP proposal for the ITU‐R Sector IMT‐Advanced program. It is worth pointing out that both of the approved IMT‐Advanced technologies are based heavily on pre‐existing standards and the modifications that were required of these technologies to meet IMT‐Advanced requirements are not considered major, in particular for LTE Release 8, which already met most of the IMT‐Advanced requirements.

    This chapter contains sections titled: The User takes Centre Stage Business Model Considerations - the Need for an Open Programmable Architecture Ubiquitous Service and Network Environment Context Awareness Personalization Mobile Adventure

  • 4G and Beyond

    Long‐Term Evolution‐Advanced (LTE‐A) is an evolved version of LTE with a major enhancement of the LTE standard to fulfill the requirements for International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced (IMT‐Advanced), and is capable of providing peak data rates of 1 Gbit/s. LTE‐A can be considered as 4G. It was initially specified as part of the 3GPP Release 10 specifications. Since then, LTE/LTE‐Advanced technology has been enhanced continuously either by the addition of new technology components or by improving existing ones. The main goal of LTE‐Advanced is to provide IMT‐Advanced functionality while retaining backward compatibility. LTE‐Advanced comprises a number of enhancements or additions. This chapter discusses these advancements and shows different blocks involved in transmission and reception with LTE‐user equipment (UE) transmitter and an eNB receiver. On the receiver side, the eNB receives the analog radio frequency (RF) signal, downconverts and samples through an analog‐digital converter (ADC).

  • Voice Evolution in 4G Networks

    This chapter describes the main practical aspects for supporting voice services over LTE. An end‐to‐end approach is presented by outlining the requirements in the LTE radio access, EPC, the IMS core, and the voice application server. This chapter includes a description of the radio features for voice, how QoS is provisioned to support conversational speech, IMS features for voice telephony, media handling, roaming architecture, and how to take advantage of any existing circuit‐switched infrastructure. The main topics included in this chapter are voice options for LTE, the VoIP protocol stack, IMS single radio voice call continuity (SRVCC). In addition, key VoLTE features are presented: semi‐persistent scheduling (SPS), TTI bundling, VoIP with C‐DRX, robust header compression (RoHC), and VoLTE Vocoders and de‐jitter buffer. The chapter concludes with deployment considerations for VoLTE with examples of the advantages of different deployment scenarios.

  • Coverage and Capacity Planning of 4G Networks

    This chapter presents the key practical aspects for capacity and coverage planning of a commercial LTE network. The basics of coverage and capacity planning are introduced. The LTE coverage and link budgets aspects are discussed in detail. The link budgets for different LTE channels are provided. The limiting channel and limiting link are analyzed in different scenarios and different frequency bands. Different propagation models and model tuning are analyzed in detail. Practical link budget examples are provided for data and VoLTE scenarios. The converge aspects of the LTE system are compared with the HSPA+ system. A case study on RF prediction for FDD‐LTE and TDD‐LTE is provided. The capacity planning aspects are presented. In addition, capacity dimensioning of LTE and HSPA+ systems is analyzed and explained in detail via practical dimensioning exercises. Specifically, several dimensioning exercises are provided for data and voice scenarios. Moreover, the dimensioning of the main LTE channels is discussed in detail, together with practical examples. A comparative analysis with the HSPA+ network is provided to benchmark and evaluate the LTE system. This chapter can be used as a reference for best practices in LTE network planning and design.

  • 4G Advanced Features and Roadmap Evolutions from LTE to LTE‐A

    This chapter describes several LTE and LTE‐A advanced features in the evolution from Release 8 to 10. Some of LTE‐A feature deployments have dependences on other LTE features, as in the case of HetNet with ICIC and SON. On the other hand, some of the LTE features have been introduced at the same time, and in some cases in the same product, as other LTE‐A features. This is the case for LTE category 4 capabilities being primarily introduced in the same devices having LTE‐A carrier aggregation features. Conceptually, the advanced features in both the LTE and LTE‐A roadmap are not deployed as stand‐alone features, or historically tied to an enhancement over previous releases (e.g. ICIC or some SON functions). Hence, the chapter covers the realistic LTE to LTE‐A evolution and the features that have strong dependences, and have been recently introduced in commercial deployments, or aret to come in the near future. The chapter begins with a discussion on the evolution of LTE UE capabilities from category 3 to category 4 devices. Moreover, it presents the main LTE‐A features: carrier aggregation, (CA) enhanced MIMO, HetNet, and relays. It also provides an overview of several features initially introduced in Release 8 and then enhanced in Release 10 and beyond, such as SON. Finallyend of the chapter describes the concept of location‐based services (LBS) in the LTE network, applicable to Release 9, and observes an increasing interest in the market for either security purposes or related commercial application.
