Presented by: Agilent Technologies
Available now On Demand
WHY THIS SERIES IS IMPORTANT
This two-part series of webcasts provides a strong foundation for RF engineers learning 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology and is based on the new 2nd Edition book LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless - Design and Measurement Challenge. RF Engineers working on the development of RF/Baseband components for LTE receivers and transmitters will gain an overall perspective of the concepts and challenges of basic LTE thru LTE-Advanced Rel 10.
This webcast will provide the basics of LTE technology. We will cover requirements, key specifications, and the latest deployment information. We will discuss air interface concepts including OFDM and SC-FDMA, review the block diagram of a transceiver, and the fundamentals of receiver and transmitter test.
This webcast will start by covering the basics of MIMO. We will then discuss the fundamentals of LTE-Advanced including the main features of Release 10, carrier aggregation, clustered SC-FDMA and more. We will conclude with test requirements of these key areas.
