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.

Voice and SMS in LTE

This white paper summarizes the technology options for supporting voice and short message service (SMS) in LTE, including circuit switched fallback (CSFB), SMS over SGs, and voice over LTE (VoLTE). It includes background information on the standardization process, and the commercial implications for the different options. The white paper also addresses test and measurement requirements…

LTE-Advanced Technology Introduction

Although the commercialization of LTE technology began in end 2009, the technology is still being enhanced in order to meet ITU-Advanced requirements. This white paper summarizes these necessary improvements, which are known as LTE-Advanced.

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.
