What is EPS Bearer in LTE?

Eps bearer LTE EPS is a connection-oriented transmission network and, as such, it requires the establishment of a “virtual” connection between two endpoints (e.g. a UE and a PDN-GW) This virtual connection is called an “EPS Bearer” It provides a…

Resource Block & Physical Resource Block in LTE

What is Resource block in lte? :- A resource block is the smallest unit of resources which allocated to a user. The resource block is 1 slot long in time and 180 kHz wide in frequency. Resource Block Multiplex multiple…

What is the difference between LTE and VOLTE?

What is VOLTE:- Volte (voice over lte) refers to voice calls made through a 4G LTE network rather than traditional calls made using csfb (circuit-switched fall-back), a system that switches from 4g back to 2g or 3g technology before connecting…

LTE Frame Structure and Resource Block Architecture

LTE Frame Structure The figure below shows the LTE frame structure under Time division mode (TDD) Type 2 and Frequency Division mode (FDD) Type 1. Differences in LTE Frame Structure Main differences in LTE Frame Structure between the two modes…

Downlink Power control in LTE

The eNodeB determines the downlink transmit energy per resource element (lte epre). Downlink cell-specific reference-signal (RS) lte epre is constant across the downlink system bandwidth and constant across all subframes until different cell-specific RS power information is received. The downlink RS…

What is AMC & its Algorithm in LTE

The effective Eb/No and hence the spectral efficiency depend on BLER. However there are QoS requirements which also have to be considered. Taking both into account leads to a target BLER. AMC is in use in order to tune BLER…

What is the difference between 4G and 4G LTE?

Many people use the terms 4g and 4g interchangeably, but they are not the same. Lets find out the difference…. Features of 4g 4G is the next step above and a 3g replacement, offering faster speeds for users who stream…

Transmit Diversity & Receive Diversity

Transmit Diversity MISO = Multiple Input Single Output Principle More complex than SISO. 2 or more transmitters and one receiver. MISO is more commonly referred to as transmit diversity. The same data is sent on both transmitting antennas but coded…

LTE Downlink Logical Channel

Paging Control Channel(PCCH) A downlink channel that transfers paging information and system information change notifications. This channel isused for paging when the network does not know the location cell of the UE Broadcast Control Channel (BCCH) Provides system information to…

E-UTRAN (Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access Network)

Role of Radio Access Network (RAN), namely NodeB and RNC is replaced with ENB, so as to reduce operational and maintenance cost of the device other than the simpler network architecture E-nodeB functions: all radio protocols, mobility management, header compression…

Intra E-UTRAN Handover in LTE

The UE is RRC connected. During the HO: The radio link is released from the eNodeB 1 and re-established on the eNodeB 2 The Control plane is switched to the eNodeB 2 and the MME The User plane is switched…

MIMO Single User for LTE

SU-MIMO = Single User MIMO It is the most common form of MIMO. Each user is served by only one BS and it occupies the resource exclusively, including time, frequency. It can be applied in the uplink or downlink. But…
