4G recommendation

  1. 1. October 2010 Presented by: Jesus Valencia Email: jvalencia@ieee.org The Pros and Cons of LTE vs. WiMAX vs. HSPA+
  2. 2. Introduction and Background LTE, WiMAX and HSPA+ Technical Overview Technology recommendation Summary and Conclusions References
  3. 3. Introduction and Background Motives behind 4G a. Rapid growth of mobile subscribers b. Exponential growth of mobile broadband, web/data and video c. More cost-efficient provisioning of new and old services d. Delivery services with proper charging e. Ubiquitous applications and utilities f. Key design services Source: IEEE Spectrum October 2010 Source: 3G Evolution HSPA and LTE for Mobile broadband
  4. 4. LTE and HSPA+ Technical Overview ITU-R includes LTE, WiMAX and HSPA+ on an equal basis a. HSPA+ is the natural evolution of WCDMA and HSDPA - 3GPP b. LTE does not need to be backward compatible with HSPA - 3GPP c. Mobile WiMax came from the data networking world - IEEE

  6. 6. OFDMA and SC-FDMA for LTE physical layer LTE Radio Access Network Technical Overview X2 interface for seamless HO
  7. 7. WiMax network IP-Based architecture HSPA+ Radio Access Network Technical Overview
  8. 8. Technology recommendation LTE FDD is the recommended technology a. Higher Data rates with lower latency time b. Interoperability with existing HSPA, WCDMA and GSM c. Better efficient terminal battery life due to SC-FDMA
  9. 9. LTE business and technical impact a. Select frequency band and bandwidth to operate b. Plan and perform LTE trial selecting 3-5 RAT vendors c. Perform LTE trial selecting 2-3 Evolved Packet Core vendors d. Address the backhaul operation and maintenance focusing on high capacity transport rings and dependability e. Strongly recommended multi-vendor interfaces f. Select low power consuming handhelds and high performance non- handheld User equipments g. Technical trial timeline a. 3-4 weeks trial per vendor b. 4 weeks post-processing, evaluation and selection of vendors c. 24 weeks installation and rollout Technology recommendation
  10. 10. a. Opportunities • LTE is an emerging technology with a new market to exploit • Equipment manufactures are open to perform free technical trial without buying the equipment • 3GPP momentum developing LTE advanced will open more business opportunities in the future b. Risks • LTE might become outdated in a couple of years • LTE is not considered 4G by ITU-R, LTE advanced will be 4G • No interoperability with WiMax • Vendors with no experience manufacturing the equipment might create delays on the new technology rollout Summary and conclusions
