IS-Wireles in cooperation with the Prince Sultan Advanced Technologies Research Institute (PSATRI) of the King Saud University is pleased to invite you to a one-day ‘LTE Workshop‘. The workshop is free of charge.

Date: 22.06.2011 (Wednesday)
Place: King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Detailed Outline:

Introduction to LTE

  • 2G to 4G radio and core network evolutions (GSM, UMTS, HSPA, LTE and LTE Advanced)
  • 3GPP requirements imposed on LTE (throughputs, network capacity, delays)
  • Spectrum bands, bandwidths, system parameters and mobile terminal capabilities
  • IMT Advanced requirements for a 4G system

LTE System Overview

  • The LTE network organization: terminals (mobile phone, laptop, PC), access network, core network and IMS
  • IP in the network: All IP and always-on concepts
  • QoS concept, parameters and possible services
  • Common IP intersystem part: IMS and its relation to IP-CANs

LTE Practical Aspects (tool-based)

  • Signals and  waveforms of LTE PHY layer  (OFDMA and SC-FDMA signals, radio frame, influence of radio propagation impairments)
  • LTE performence requirements
  • Real istic numbers for LTE network coverage and capacity (theoretical versus practically achievable data-rates)
  • Current status of LTE development
  • Possible LTE deployment scenarios
  • Available handhets and possible evolutions

LTE Services

  • Potential 4G services
  • Operator based policy and charging flexibility (e.g. generating revenue based on service type – enabled by ALL-IP)
  • Organization of SMS and 2G/3G voice in LTE (problems and solutions)
  • Packet services: MBMS, internet access, VoD, online gaming
  • LTE as competition for fixed networks

Who should attend?
Telecom engineers, managers, operators, business executives, researchers and students.
