WIRELESS FUNDAMENTALS


Printer-friendly PDF version
In the wireless landscape, one of the next generation wireless networks is known as Long
Term Evolution (LTE). LTE promises dramatic improvements in throughput and latency,
which opens a new era in the Quality of Service. These enhancements are based on several
fundamental pillars: a new air interface (OFDM+MIMO), simplified network architecture and
efficient air interface structure and signaling mechanisms. This course takes a detailed look
at the layer 2 and 3 signaling procedures as defined in the 3GPP specifications. The main
focus is on UE-EUTRAN and UE-EPC signaling. The course also provides an overview of the
end-to-end call setup scenario involving the IMS components of the core network.

Note: This course is based on the latest version of the 3GPP specifications. However, the
specifications are still in draft form.
Learning Objectives
After completing this course, the student will be able to:
Sketch the network architecture of the EPSs
Explain the detailed setup of the RRC connection between the UE and the EUTRAN
Describe the roles of the MAC, RLC and PDCP protocols
Illustrate initial Attach operation
Explain the implementation of QoS and security
Summarize traffic operations for UL and DL
Describe various handover scenarios and the associated signaling procedures
Describe inter-system handover mechanisms, in particular the LTE to 3G/2G scenario
Step through the end-to-end signaling message flow for setting up a call/connection in LTE
Intended Audience
This course is primarily intended for a technical audience in design, test, systems
engineering or product support that wants to understand LTE signaling details.
