LTE UE receiver performance measurements

LTE user equipment (UE) receiver performance has significant impact to cellular radio network coverage and capacity. It determines the maximum data throughput across the air interface between the LTE base station (eNB, evolved node B) and the mobile network subscriber UE, thus it determines the total capacity across the air interface. Therefore, it is one…

LTE Release 9 Technology Introduction – White Paper

The LTE technology as specified within 3GPP Release 8 was first commercially deployed by end 2009. Since then the number of operators implementing the technology is strongly increasing around the globe. LTE has become the fastest developing mobile system technology. The same way GSM and WCDMA have been enhanced with additional features over time, LTE…

WLAN Traffic Offload in LTE

This whitepaper provides an overview of the WLAN offload in LTE as standardized by 3GPP, as well as the enhancements for Wi-Fi standardized by IEEE and the Wi-Fi Alliance. It also describes access methods in the joint network, treats the security, and describes IP mobility. In addition network discovery and selection are explained.

Webinar: LTE UE RF Measurement

The Rohde & Schwarz webinar focuses on the amendments made to 3GPP TS 36.521-1 and explains the enhanced test definitions. The webinar illustrates on the R&S®CMW500 wideband radio communication tester how the specified RF test cases can be performed and automated, and how the results can be interpreted.
