5G Radio Technologies and Deployments

January 14th, 2019

Class: 9:00am – 3:30pm PST

Register to attend only this seminar here.

3GPP is evaluating various technologies to determine specific elements of a 5G wireless network. These technologies enable the 5G wireless network to achieve the 5G performance goals defined by ITU as part of IMT2020 requirements.

This course describes potential spectrum for 5G including millimeter wave spectrum, and enhancements to the traditional 4G OFDM/OFDMA such as Universal Filtered Multi Carrier (UFMC), Filter Bank Multi Carrier (FBMC), and Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA). In addition, enhancements to advanced antenna techniques such as massive MIMO are covered as well as the new frame structures being investigated by 3GPP.

LTE-M and NB-IoT

January 15th, 2019

Class: 9:00am – 3:30pm PST

Register to attend only this seminar here.

Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to dominate telecom market where machines exchange data for intelligent applications. Devices and networks supporting IoT pose unique challenges such as low power, low cost, low mobility, and long battery life. This course addresses several low power wide area (LPWA) network technologies defined by 3GPP to meet these requirements. 3GPP defined LPWA technology options include LTE-M (or enhanced machine type communication) and Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT).

This course provides a foundation for MTC, eMTC, NB-LTE, and EC-GSM. Fundamental concepts of IoT-centric optimizations for a wireless network are explained. IoT-specific characteristics of the wireless network and relevant UE categories (e.g., Category M1 and Category NB1) are described.

Learning Objectives
After completing this course, the attendee will be able to:

  • Give examples of IoT use cases
  • Differentiate between 3GPP and non-3GPP IoT
  • Explain wireless optimizations for IoT such as Power Save Mode and eDRX
  • Distinguish among MTC, LTE-M, and NB-IoT
  • Specify IoT-specific characteristics of the network and UE categories

Course Outline 

Introduction to IoT
IoT: what and why
Overview of MTC, eMTC, and NB-IoT
Non-3GPP IoT solutions (SIGFOX, LoRa, Silver Spring Networks, and Ingenu)
Cellular IoT vs. non-cellular IoT

Wireless Optimizations for IoT
IoT requirements on wireless networks
Extended Access Barring (EAB)
Overload and congestion control
Optimized NAS signaling
Coverage enhancement (CE) techniques
CE Mode A and CE Mode B
Power Save Mode (PSM)
eDRX for idle and connected modes

Network and UE Characteristics
Network architecture enhancements (e.g., NIDD via SCEF)
Overview of UE categories
LTE-M and Cat M1: A closer look
NB-IoT and Cat NB1: A closer look
