Figure 8.3 illustrates throughput simulation results for uplink transmission.

Considering the maximum bandwidth and 64-QAM modulation, the maximum PUSCH

throughput is 71.97 Mbps by applying 0.85 puncture code rate.

Due to the fact that in LTE Release 8 there can be two antennas in Uplink but the

MIMO technique is the close loop rank 1. In this technique only one antenna port is

available for data transmission, therefore physical layer has the capacity of two antennas

however just one antenna in used at a time. So the throughput is calculated based on one

antenna transmission. In later release of LTE (Release 10) both antenna ports are

available for data transmission. Creating different scenarios is possible in uplink too,

based on different bandwidths, modulation schemes, and code rates. For example in case

of 15 MHz channel bandwidth in uplink, the maximum resource elements assigned for

PUSCH is 105120 in one radio frame. Hence the throughput for uplink data is 53.612

Mbps, 35.74 Mbps, and 14.92 in case of 64-QAM with 0.85 code rate, 16-QAM with

0.85 code rate, and QPSK with 0.71 code rate.

The overhead calculation for control channels and reference signals in uplink is

possible as well as downlink, based on the information provided in section 5.3 (Physical

Layers and Reference Signals) since the resource elements allotted for control channel

and reference signals is given in this chapter. For example assuming 2/2a/2b format for

PUCCH, the number of resource elements assigned to this channel is 2880 in all the

bandwidths excluding demodulation reference signal associated with this channel.

(PUCCH is mapped to the sided resource blocks of the overall bandwidth). Therefore, the

overhead of PUCCH is 0.192 Mbps. In case of the maximum throughput of PUSCH,

which is 71.97 Mbps, the overhead for PUCCH is 1.71% of the uplink physical channel.
