The course addresses the principles associated with the Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile communications technology.
The two areas where LTE differs from previous versions of the mobile communications technology, i.e. GSM and HSPA, are in the radio interface and the core network requirements. The course addresses both these areas.
For the radio interface we will look at the wireless channel and system models, resource management and power control, multiple antenna and MIMO systems, space-time codes and decoding algorithms, multiple access techniques and multiple user detection, and OFDM.
For the core network we will look at the Systems Architecture Evolution (SAE) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as defined by the 3 GPP.
Two additional areas of current interest associated with 4G mobile networks, viz. WiMax and WiFi Data Offload will also be covered.
