 History of 3GPP LTE
 Basic Concepts of LTE
 Introduction of LTE Protocol
 Compare with LTE and LTE-Advanced
 Conclusion

What is LTE ?
 In Nov. 2004, 3GPP began a project to
define the long-term evolution (LTE) of
Universal Mobile Telecommunications
System (UMTS) cellular technology
 Higher performance
 Backwards compatible
 Wide application

802.16d/e

 LTE (3.9G) :
3GPP release 8~9
 LTE-Advanced :
3GPP release 10+
5
LTE Basic Concepts
 LTE employs Orthogonal Frequency
Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) for do
wnlink data transmission and Single Carrier
FDMA (SC-FDMA) for uplink transmission

Multipath-Induced Time Delays Result in
Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI)

βS(t-m)
y (t )  S (t )   S (t  m)  n(t )
S(t)

y(t) : output signal


S(t) : input signal
S(t-m) : delayed m time input signal
n(t) : noise
y(t)

Equalizers in Receiver
 Against Frequency Selective Fading
 Channel transform function Hc(f)

y (t )  S (t )  S (t  m) H c ( f )  1  e  j 2fm

 Equalizers transform function Heq(f) (Receiver)

Hc ( f )  
H c ( f ) 1  e  j 2fm

8
Frequency Selective Fading
 the coherence bandwidth of the channel is
smaller than the bandwidth of the signal

Frequency Correlation > 0.9


Bc = 1 / 50α α is r.m.s. delay spread

It may be useless for increasing transmission power

FDM vs. OFDM

11
LTE-Downlink (OFDM)
 Improved spectral
efficiency
 Reduce ISI effect
by multipath
 Against frequency
selective fading

12
LTE Uplink (SC-FDMA)
 SC-FDMA is a new single carrier multiple access
technique which has similar structure and
performance to OFDMA
A salient
advantage of SC-
FDMA over
OFDM is low to

Generic Frame Structure
 Allocation of physical resource blocks (PR
Bs) is handled by a scheduling function at t
he 3GPP base station (eNodeB)

Frame 0 and frame 5 (always downlink)


15
Resource Grid

 One frame is 10ms


 10 subframes

 One subframe is 1ms


 2 slots
 One slot is 0.5ms
 N resource blocks
[ 6 < N < 110]
 One resource block is 0.5ms
and contains 12 subcarriers fr
om each OFDM symbol

23
Layered OFDMA
 The bandwidth of basic frequency block is,
15–20 MHz
 Layered OFDMA radio access scheme in L
TE-A will have layered transmission bandw
idth, support of layered environments and c
ontrol signal formats

 In LTE-A, the advanced multi-cell transmiss
ion/reception processes helps in increasing f

 Calculation unit
 Determination unit
 Feedback unit
25
Enhanced Multi-antenna
Transmission Techniques
 In LTE-A, the MIMO scheme has to be further improved i
n the area of spectrum efficiency, average cell through put
and cell edge performances
 In LTE-A the antenna configurations of 8x8 in DL and 4x4
in UL are planned

26
Enhanced Techniques to Extend
Coverage Area
 Remote Radio Requirements (RREs) using optical f
iber should be used in LTE-A as effective technique
to extend cell coverage

27
Support of Larger Bandwidth in
LTE-Advanced
 Peak data rates up to 1Gbps are expected fr
om bandwidths of 100MHz. OFDM adds ad
ditional sub-carrier to increase bandwidth

28

29
Conclusion
 LTE-A helps in integrating the existing net
works, new networks, services and terminal
s to suit the escalating user demands
 LTE-Advanced will be standardized in the 3
GPP specification Release 10 (LTE-A) and
will be designed to meet the 4G requiremen
ts as defined by ITU
