  4. 4. ©3G4G Different paths to 4G 4G LTE / LTE-A (FDD – TDD) 3GPP 3GPP2 1xEV-DO:Enhanced Voice-Data Optimized CDMA ONE: Code Division Multiple Access One EDGE: Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution eHRPD: Enhanced High Rate Packet Data GPRS: General Packet Radio Service GSM: Global System for Mobile Communications HSPA: High Speed Packet Access HSPA+: High Speed Packet Access Plus OFDMA: Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access SCDMA: Synchronous CDMA TD: Time Division TD-SOFDMA TD Scalable OFDMA UMTS: Universal Mobile Telecommunication System

  6. 6. Circuit Switched Fallback (CSFB) ©3G4G LTE 2G/3G UE CSFB • CSFB has been designed as an interim solution until the LTE networks are rolled out completely. • In case of CSFB, the UE falls back to 2G/3G network when a voice call / SMS needs to be initiated / sent or received. • Since the UE has just one receiver, the data rates after CSFB would be the data rates offered by the 2G/3G network.
  7. 7. CSFB Approaches ©3G4G • Redirection: When UE starts a call in Idle (RRC_IDLE) state • Handover: When the UE already has an active data connection (in RRC_Connected state). The active data connection is handed over to 2G/3G network
  8. 8. SVLTE (Simultaneous Voice and LTE) ©3G4G • Also known as Dual Radio Concept • Separate registration takes place for the CDMA/EV-DO and LTE networks • Each network need not be aware of what the UE is doing with the other one. • Since Voice and Data are independent one of them does not impact the other one. LTE CDMA/EV-DO • CDMA/EV-DO registration • Paging for Voice call • MO/MT Voice call • LTE registration • Paging for Data call • Data call UE
  9. 9. SGLTE (Simultaneous GSM and LTE) ©3G4G • Same as SVLTE but for GSM Network LTE 2G – GSM • 2G registration • Paging for Voice call • MO/MT Voice call • LTE registration • Paging for Data call • Data call UE
  10. 10. SRLTE (Single Radio LTE) ©3G4G • Similar to SVLTE but Single Radio • Only Apple implemented it in iPhone • Separate registration takes place for the 2G/3G and LTE networks • Each network is not aware of what the UE is doing with the other one. • Only Voice or Data can be done at any time, not both. • UE scans paging channel regularly making it inefficient LTE CDMA/EV-DO • CDMA/EV-DO registration • Paging for Voice call • MO/MT Voice call • LTE registration • Paging for Data call • Data call UE
  11. 11. SxLTE was strongly discouraged ©3G4G • Devices were more expensive because of dual radios • Higher Power Consumption • Does not allow legacy networks to be switched off • Can have competitive disadvantage 2G WiMAX

  15. 15. Why have 4G Voice? ©3G4G • Better for MNO’s with no legacy Infrastructure • Re-farm Spectrum • Better Voice Quality • Faster Data Rates while voice calling – other services are not impacted • Simpler operation • Better Battery Life
  16. 16. Voice over LTE (VoLTE) ©3G4G • Voice is independent of Data and is carried by different bearer • An additional signalling and data bearer is used for VoLTE VoLTE bearer Default Bearer eNB Internet UE APN1 APN2
