LTE Radio Network Planning Tutorial

Dr Slawomir Pietrzyk, CEO of IS-Wireless, delivered a tutorial entitled: LTE Radio Network Planning during the Networking 2012 conference which was held in Prague, Czech Republic, on the 21st of May, 2012.

LTE radio interface (i.e., E-UTRA) is build around OFDMA, SC-FDMA and MIMO. This is a different set of radio transmission techniques than the one used in the previous 3GPP standards (such as GERAN or UTRAN). OFDMA and SC-FDMA allow to utilize the parallelism in the frequency domain and to manage the spectral resource with the high level of granularity. MIMO provides yet another domain, namely space. These schemes cause the radio planning process for LTE to be different from the previous standards. In this tutorial, we highlight the most important differences in the radio interface architecture, draw conclusions on how they impact the process of radio network planning and formulate a basic set of recommendations on how to deal with these differences.

Modeling and Simulation of Scheduling Algorithms in LTE Networks

By Dinesh Mannani, The Institute of Telecommunications, Warsaw University of Technology.

This thesis is mainly to understand the scheduling algorithms for LTE by means of modeling and simulation of the process and in the end verify the results by conducting tests in a LTE test environment. Furthermore, work out a method to examine LTE scheduling performance evaluation for teaching purposes.

The analysis of these scheduling algorithms has been done through simulations executed on a MATLAB-based system level simulator from IS-Wireless, which is part of 4G University Suite with their verification in LTE network test environment.
