LTE Design/Test Challenges for Public Safety Radio & SDR
Agilent in Aerospace/Defense – Webcast Series
Title: LTE Design and Test Challenges for Public Safety Radio and SDR Applications
Date: June 12, 2013
Time: 10am PT / 1pm ET / 7pm CET
Presenter: Greg Jue, Applications Development Engineer/Scientist, Agilent Technologies
The rapid evolution of standardized commercial technologies such as LTE makes them more attractive for public safety radio applications and potentially also for SDR (software defined radio) applications. LTE has the potential to support applications that require high data throughput due to key attributes such as scalable subcarriers and the use of multi-antenna techniques such as MIMO. However, the complexity of LTE can pose design and test challenges for RF and physical-layer baseband development. This webcast will discuss how these challenges can be addressed earlier in the development phase to help minimize potential RF and baseband system integration risks. It will also discuss how standards-based LTE functionality can be customized in simulation. An improved methodology to verify LTE FPGA test vectors will also be discussed.
This webcast will be of interest to system designers and test engineers that develop and evaluate mobile communications terminals for data and voice applications. Particularly those working in the areas of SDR (Software Defined Radio), military terrestrial communications and public safety radio should attend. Additionally, it will be useful for engineering managers that need more information on new design and measurement technologies and their affect on program costs.
