4G is the fourth generation of mobile communication networks developed and standarized by the 3GPP. 4G networks is the natural evolution of the existing 3G networks based on HSPA technology. 4G development and standardization was the first attempt of the 3GPP to define a network that provide the capabilities defined by ITU in their IMT-Advanced set of requirements.
The first-release of a 4G networks was commercially deployed in Norway and Sweden in 2009. Since then, it has been deployed throughout most parts of the world.
For these 4G networks, the 3GPP specified a new air Interface based on OFDMA technology. With the Introducing LTE Air Interface eLearning course, the student will have the opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the basic concepts of the new LTE Air Interface
Introducing LTE Air Interface
The Introducing LTE Air Interface course introduces the basics of the air Interface in LTE. This course covers the technologies involved in the air Interface such as OFDMA and MIMO as well as the protocols used in the air interface.
• Understand the basics of OFDMA
• Understand the basic of MIMO
