Coordinated multipoint (CoMP) MIMO Higher spectral efficiency (bps/Hz) Leverage HetNets With advanced interference management (eICIC/IC) Primarily higher data rates (bps) LTE Carrier #5 LTE Advanced Up to 100 MHz Small Cell Higher spectral efficiency per coverage area 2 (bps/Hz/km ) 3
  • First Carrier Aggregation launched June 2013—powered TM 800 by Snapdragon 4 Qualcomm Snapdragon is a product of Qualcomm Technologies Inc.
  • Carrier aggregation launched—key to enabling 150 Mbps Carrier aggregation is the first step of LTE Advanced Uplink 10 MHz + 10 MHz Enables 150 Mbps peak data rates for typical 10MHz + 10MHz deployments Downlink (Interband) 10 MHz Band X Band Y Band X World’s first launch powered by Qualcomm Technologies’ 3rd generation Gobi modem Snapdragon 800 8974 LTE Advanced DL LTE Carrier MDM 9x25 LTE Advanced DL LTE Carrier UL LTE Carrier Aggregated Data Pipe World’s first mobile device with LTE Advanced Carrier Aggregation powered by Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 June 2013 Note: Snapdragon 800 includes 8974, which integrates our third generation Gobi LTE modem, but Gobi modems are also offered as a standalone modem product 5 Qualcomm Snapdragon and Qualcomm Gobi are products of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
  • Up to 20 MHz Up to 20 MHz Up to 20 MHz Up to 20 MHz Up to 20 MHz Higher peak data rates LTE Carrier #3 LTE Carrier #1 LTE Carrier #4 Aggregated Data Pipe Up to 100 MHz LTE Carrier #2 LTE Carrier #5 Higher user data rates and lower latencies for all users More capacity for typical ‘bursty’ usage1 Leverages all spectrum assets Carrier Aggregation—fatter pipe to enhance user experience 1 The typical bursty nature of usage, such as web browsing, means that aggregated carriers can support more users at the same response (user experience) compared to two individual carriers, given that the for carriers are partially loaded which is typical in real networks. The gain depends on the load and can exceed 100% for fewer users (less loaded carrier) but less for many users. For completely loaded carrier, there is limited capacity gain between individal carriers and aggregated carriers, 6
  • Carrier aggregation leverages all spectrum assets Balances load across carriers Aggregate fragmented LTE spectrum within a band or across bands to create a fatter data pipe Aggregate within or across bands (FDD or/and TDD)1 Better use of lower spectrum band’s wider coverage e.g. 800 MHz e.g. 10 MHz e.g. 2.6 GHz e.g. 10 MHz e.g. 700MHz e.g. 10 MHz LTE Carrier #3 LTE Carrier #1 LTE Carrier #2 LTE Carrier #5 Aggregated Data Pipe Carrier 2 Smal cell LTE Carrier #4 Aggregate unpaired spectrum for more downlink capacity—supplemental downlink Enhances HetNets with multiple carriers Supplemental Downlink (FDD) Macro Small cell Carrier 1 Example: Carrier 1 used for wide area macro coverage, but also by small cell, carrier 2 used by all nodes, but with lower power around macrocell. Frequency domain interference management (carrier aggregation) can be combined with eICIC (time domain coordination) interference mgnt 1Aggregation of either FDD or TDD from 3GPP R10 , aggregation of FDD and TDD within the same node and different nodes (multiflow) are 3GPP R12 candidates 7
  • Carrier aggregation increases capacity for typical network load Bursty data applications Carrier aggregation capacity gain Burst Rate (normalized) 6 2 10MHz Single Carriers 10MHz + 10MHz Carrier Aggregation User experience 5 Data bursts 4 3 2 Partially loaded carriers 1 Capacity gain can exceed 2x (for same user experience)1 0 0 Idle time 3 6 6 12 9 18 12 24 15 30 Load (Mbps) 1 Carrier aggregation doubles burst rate for all users in the cell, which reduces over-the-air latency ~50%, but if the user experience is kept the same (same burst rate), multicarrier can instead support more users for partially loaded carriers. The gain depends on the load and can exceed 100% for fewer users (less loaded carrier) but less for many users (starting to resemble full buffer with limited gain).
