Session 1: Introduction to LTE•Motivation•Requirements•Evolution of UMTS FDD and TDD•LTE Technology Basics•LTE Key Parameters•LTE Frequency Bands
Motivation: LTE background story the early days Work on LTE was initiated as a 3GPP release 7 study item “Evolved UTRA and UTRAN” in December 2004: “With enhancements such as HSDPA and Enhanced Uplink, the 3GPP radio-access technology will be highly competitive for several years. However, to ensure competitiveness in an even longer time frame, i.e. for the next 10 years and beyond, a long term evolution of the 3GPP radio- access technology needs to be considered.”• Basic drivers for LTE have been: – Reduced latency – Higher user data rates – Improved system capacity and coverage – Cost-reduction.
Major requirements for LTE identified during study item phase in 3GPP• Higher peak data rates: 100 Mbps (downlink) and 50 Mbps (uplink)• Improved spectrum efficiency: 2-4 times better compared to 3GPP release 6• Improved latency: – Radio access network latency (user plane UE – RNC - UE) below 10 ms – Significantly reduced control plane latency• Support of scalable bandwidth: 1.4, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 MHz• Support of paired and unpaired spectrum (FDD and TDD mode)• Support for interworking with legacy networks• Cost-efficiency: – Reduced CApital and OPerational EXpenditures (CAPEX, OPEX) including backhaul – Cost-effective migration from legacy networks• A detailed summary of requirements has been captured in 3GPP TR 25.913 „Requirements for Evolved UTRA (E-UTRA) and Evolved UTRAN (E- UTRAN)”.
Evolution of UMTS FDD and TDD driven by data rate and latency requirementsNote:•High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA, also known as High-Speed Data Packet Access)•High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA)•High Speed Packet Access (HSPA)

Release 4: Key Features • Functional Freeze: March 2001 – Enhancements 1.28 Mcps TDD (aka TD-SCDMA). – Multimedia messaging support. – First steps toward using IP transport in the core network.Megachips per second (Mcps) is a measure of the speed with which encoding elements,called chips (not to be confused with microchips), are generated in Direct Sequence SpreadSpectrum (DSSS) signals. This speed is also known as the chipping rate. A speed of 1 Mcps isequivalent to 1,000,000, or 106, chips per second.Typical chipping rates in third-generation (3G) wireless systems are on the order of severalmillion chips per second. For example, in Wideband Code-Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA)systems, the standard rate is 3.84 Mcps.
Release 5: Key Features • Functional Freeze: June 2002 – HSDPA – IMS: First phase of Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). – Adaptive Multi-Rate - Wideband (AMR-WB) Speech – Full ability to use IP-based transport instead of just Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) in the core network.Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband (AMR-WB) is a patented speech coding standard developedbased on Adaptive Multi-Rate encoding, using similar methodology as Algebraic Code ExcitedLinear Prediction (ACELP). AMR-WB provides improved speech quality due to a wider speechbandwidth of 50–7000 Hz compared to narrowband speech coders which in general areoptimized for POTS wireline quality of 300–3400 Hz. AMR-WB was developed by Nokia andVoiceAge and it was first specified by 3GPP.AMR-WB is codified as G.722.2, an ITU-T standard speech codec, formally known as Widebandcoding of speech at around 16 kbit/s using Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband (AMR-WB). G.722.2AMR-WB is the same codec as the 3GPP AMR-WB. The corresponding 3GPP specifications are TS26.190 for the speech codec and TS 26.194 for the Voice Activity Detector.

Session 2: OFDMA•OFDM and OFDMA•LTE Downlink•OFDMA time-frequency multiplexing•LTE Spectrum Flexibility•LTE Frame Structure type 1 (FDD)•LTE Frame Structure type 2(TDD)
OFDM• Single Carrier Transmission (e.g. WCDMA)• Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing
OFDM Concept: Mengapa OFDM• Sinyal OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) dapat mendukung kondisi NLOS (Non Line of Sight) dengan mempertahankan efisiensi spektral yang tinggi dan memaksimalkan spektrum yang tersedia.• Mendukung lingkungan propagasi multi-path.• Scalable bandwidth: menyediakan fleksibilitas dan potensial mengurangi CAPEX (capital expense). 37
OFDM Concept: Mutipath Propagation• Sinyal-sinyal multipath datang pada waktu yang berbeda dengan amplitudo dan pergeseran fasa yang berbeda, yang menyebabkan pelemahan dan penguatan daya sinyal yang diterima.• Propagasi multipath berpengaruh terhadap performansi link dan coverage.• Selubung (envelop) sinyal Rx berfluktuasi secara acak. 39
OFDM Concept: FFT• Multi-carrier modulation/multiplexing technique• Available bandwidth is divided into several subchannels• Data is serial-to-parallel converted• Symbols are transmitted on different subcarriers 40
OFDM Concept: IFFTBasic ideas valid for various multicarrier techniques:• OFDM: Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing• OFDMA: Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access 41
OFDM Concept: Single-Carrier Vs. OFDM Single-Carrier Mode: OFDM Mode:• Serial Symbol Stream Used to Modulate a • Each Symbol Used to Modulate a Separate Single Wideband Carrier Sub-Carrier• Serial Datastream Converted to Symbols (Each Symbol Can Represented 1 or More Data Bits) 42
OFDM Concept: Single-Carrier Vs. OFDM Single-Carrier Mode OFDM Mode• Dotted Area Represents Transmitted Spectrum• Solid Area Represents Receiver Input• OFDM mengatasi delay spread, multipath dan ISI (Inter Symbol Interference) secara efisien sehingga dapat meningkatkan throughput data rate yang lebih tinggi.• Memudahkan ekualisasi kanal terhadap sub-carrier OFDM individual, dibandingkan terhadap sinyal single-carrier yang memerlukan teknik ekualisasi adaptif lebih kompleks. 43
OFDM Concept: Motivation for Multi-carrier Approaches• Multi-carrier transmission offers various advantages over traditional single carrier approaches: – Highly scalable – Simplified equalizer design in the frequency domain, also in cases of large delay spread – High spectrum density – Simplified the usage of MIMO – Good granularity to control user data rates – Robustness against timing errors• Weakness of multi-carrier systems: – Increased peak to average power ratio (PAPR) – Impairments due to impulsive noise – Impairments due to frequency errors 44
OFDM Concept: Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR)• PAPR merupakan ukuran dari fluktuasi tepat sebelum amplifier.• PAPR sinyal hasil dari mapping PSK base band sebesar 0 dB karena semua symbol mempunyai daya yang sama.• Tetapi setelah dilakukan proses IDFT/IFFT, hasil superposisi dari dua atau lebih subcarrier dapat menghasilkan variasi daya dengan nilai peak yang besar.• Hal ini disebabkan oleh modulasi masing-masing subcarrier dengan frekuensi yang berbeda sehingga apabila beberapa subcarrier mempunyai fasa yang koheren, akan muncul amplituda dengan level yang jauh lebih besar dari daya sinyalnya. 45
OFDM Concept: Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR)• Nilai PAPR yang besar pada OFDM membutuhkan amplifier dengan dynamic range yang lebar untuk mengakomodasi amplitudo sinyal.• Jika hal ini tidak terpenuhi maka akan terjadi distorsi linear yang menyebabkan subcarrier menjadi tidak lagi ortogonal dan pada akhirnya menurunkan performansi OFDM. 46
Tipe Sub-Carrier OFDMData Sub-carriers• Membawa simbol BPSK, QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAMPilot Sub-carriers• Untuk memudahkan estimasi kanal dan demodulasi koheren pada receiver.Null Subcarrier• Guard Sub-carriers• DC Sub-carrier 47
OFDM & OFDMAOFDM OFDMA• Semua subcarrier dialokasikan untuk satu • Subcarrier dialokasikan secara fleksibel user untuk banyak user tergantung pada kondisi• Misal : 802.16-2004 radio. • Misal : 802.16e-2005 dan 802.16m 50
LTE Downlink Physical Layer Design: Physical Resource The physical resource can be seen as a time-frequency grid• LTE uses OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) as its radio technology in downlink• In the uplink LTE uses a pre=coded version of OFDM, SC-FDMA (Single Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access) to reduced power consumption 54
LTE Downlink Resource Grid • Suatu RB (resource block) terdiri dari 12 subcarrier pada suatu durasi slot 0.5 ms. • Satu subcarrier mempunyai BW 15 kHz, sehingga menjadi 180 kHz per RB. 55

LTE – Spectrum Flexibility• LTE physical layer supports any bandwidth from 1.4 MHz to 20 MHz in steps of 180 kHz (resource block).• Current LTE specification supports a subset of 6 different system bandwidths.• All UEs must support the maximum bandwidth of 20 MHz.
Case Study LTE Signal Spectrum (20 MHz case)• The LTE standard uses an over-sized LTE. The actual used bandwidth is controlled by the number of used subcarriers. 15 kHz subcarrier spacing is the constant factor!• 18 MHz out of 20 MHz is used for data, 1 MHz on each side is used as guard band.• LTE used spectrum radio = 90%• WiMAX used spectrum radio = 82% 60

LTE Frame Structure type 1 (FDD)• 2 slots form one subframe = 1 ms• For FDD, in each 10 ms interval, all 10 subframes are available for downlink transmission and uplink transmissions.• For TDD, a subframe is either located to downlink or uplink transmission. The 0th and 5th subframe in a radio frame is always allocated for downlink transmission. 63

Session 3: SC-FDMA•Introduction SC-FDMA and UL frame structure•How to generate SC-FDMA•How does SC-FDMA signal look like•SC-FDMA Signal Generation•SC-FDMA PAPR•SC-FDMA Parameterization
LTE Uplink Transmission Scheme: SC-FDMA• Pemilihan OFDMA dianggap optimum untuk memenuhi persyaratan LTE pada arah downlink, tetapi OFDMA memiliki properti yang kurang menguntungkan pada arah Uplink.• Hal tsb terutama disebabkan oleh lemahnya peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) dari sinyal OFDMA, yang mengakibatkan buruknya coverage uplink.• Oleh karena itu, skema transmisi Uplink LTE untuk mode FDD maupun TDD didasarkan pada SC-FDMA, yang mempunyai properti PAPR lebih baik.• Pemrosesan sinyal SC-FDMA memiliki beberapa kesamaan dengan pemrosesan sinyal OFDMA, sehingga parameter-parameter DL dan UL dapat diharmonisasi.• Untuk membangkitkan sinyal SC-FDMA, E-UTRA telah memilih DFT- spread-OFDM (DFT-s-OFDM). 76
OFDMA and SC-FDMA • The symbol mapping in OFDM happens in the frequency domain. • In SC-FDMA, the symbol mapping is done in the time domain. • Appropriate subscriber mapping in the frequency domain allows to control the PAPR. • SC-FDMA enable frequency domain equalizer approaches like OFDMA 77
Comparison of how OFDMA and SC-FDMAtransmit a sequence of QPSK data symbols 78
Comparison of how OFDMA and SC-FDMAtransmit a sequence of QPSK data symbols Creating the time- domain waveform of an SC-FDMA symbol Baseband and shifted frequency domain representations of an SC-FDMA symbol 79
How to generate SC-FDMA?• DFT “pre-coding” is performed on modulated data symbols to transform them into frequency domain,• Sub-carrier mapping allows flexible allocation of signal to available sub-carriers,• IFFT and cyclic prefix (CP) insertion as in OFDM,• Each subcarrier carries a portion of superposed DFT spread data symbols, therefore SC-FDMA is also referred to as DFT-spread- OFDM (DFT-s-OFDM).
How does a SC-FDMA signal look like?• Similar to OFDM signal, but… – …in OFDMA, each sub-carrier only carries information related to one specific symbol, – …in SC-FDMA, each sub-carrier contains information of ALL transmitted symbols.

EPS Network Elements S6a Gx Rx S1-MME MME Operator’s LTE-Uu S1-U S5 / S8 SGi IP Services S-GW P-GW (e.g. IMS, PSS, eNB etc,) UE E-UTRAN EPC• UE, E-UTRAN and EPC together represent the Internet Protocol (IP) Connectivity Layer.• This part of the system is also called the Evolved Packet System (EPS).• The main function of this layer is to provide IP based connectivity, and it is highly optimized for that purpose only.• All services will be offered on top of IP, and circuit switched nodes and interfaces seen in earlier 3GPP architectures are not present in E-UTRAN and EPC at all.• IP technologies are also dominant in the transport, where everything is designed to be operated on top of IP transport.
Services • The IP Multimedia Sub-System (IMS) is a good example of service machinery that can be used in the Services Connectivity Layer to provide services on top of the IP connectivity provided by the lower layers. • For example, to support the voice service, IMS can provide Voice over IP (VoIP) and interconnectivity to legacy circuit switched networks PSTN and ISDN through Media Gateways it controls.
EPC • Functionally the EPC is equivalent to the packet switched domain of the existing 3GPP networks. • Significant changes in the arrangement of functions and most nodes and the architecture in this part should be considered to be completely new. • SAE GW represents the combination of the two gateways, Serving Gateway (S-GW) and Packet Data Network Gateway (P-GW) defined for the UP handling in EPC. • Implementing them together as the SAE GW represents one possible deployment scenario, but the standards define the interface between them, and all operations have also been specified for when they are separate. • The Basic System Architecture Configuration and its functionality are documented in 3GPP TS 23.401. • We will learn the operation when the S5/S8One of the big architectural changes in the interface uses the GTP protocol. However, whencore network area is that the EPC does the S5/S8 interface uses PMIP, the functionality fornot contain a circuit switched domain, and these interfaces is slightly different, and the Gxcno direct connectivity to traditional circuit interface also is needed between the Policy andswitched networks such as ISDN or PSTN Charging Resource Function (PCRF) and S-GW.is needed in this layer.
E-UTRAN • The development in E-UTRAN is concentrated on one node, the evolved Node B (eNodeB). • All radio functionality is collapsed there, i.e. the eNodeB is the termination point for all radio related protocols. • As a network, E-UTRAN is simply a mesh of eNodeBs connected to neighbouring eNodeBs with the X2 interface.
User Equipment • UE is the device that the end user uses for communication. • Typically it is a hand held device such as a smart phone or a data card such as those used currently in 2G and 3G, or it could be embedded, e.g. to a laptop. • UE also contains the Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) that is a separate module from the rest of the UE, which is often called the Terminal Equipment (TE). • USIM is an application placed into a removable smart card called the Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC). • USIM is used to identify and authenticate theFunctionally the UE is a platform for communication user and to derive security keys for protecting applications, which signal with the network for setting the radio interface transmission. up, maintaining and removing the communication links • Maybe most importantly, the UE provides the the end user needs.This includes mobility management functions such as user interface to the end user so that handovers and reporting the terminals location, and in applications such as a VoIP client can be used to these the UE performs as instructed by the network. set up a voice call.

Control plane protocol stack in EPSThe topmost layer in the CP is the Non-Access Stratum (NAS), which consists of two separate protocols that are carried on direct signaling transport between the UE and the MME.The content of the NAS layer protocols is not visible to the eNodeB, and the eNodeB is not involved in these transactions by any other means, besides transporting the messages, and providing some additional transport layer indications along with the messages in some cases.
NAS layer protocolsThe NAS layer protocols are:• EPS Mobility Management (EMM): The EMM protocol is responsible for handling the UE mobility within the system. It includes functions for attaching to and detaching from the network, and performing location updating in between. This is called Tracking Area Updating (TAU), and it happens in idle mode. Note that the handovers in connected mode are handled by the lower layer protocols, but the EMM layer does include functions for re-activating the UE from idle mode. The UE initiated case is called Service Request, while Paging represents the network initiated case. Authentication and protecting the UE identity, i.e. allocating the temporary identity GUTI to the UE are also part of the EMM layer, as well as the control of NAS layer security functions, encryption and integrity protection.• EPS Session Management (ESM): This protocol may be used to handle the bearer management between the UE and MME, and it is used in addition for E-UTRAN bearer management procedures. Note that the intention is not to use the ESM procedures if the bearer contexts are already available in the network and E- UTRAN procedures can be run immediately. This would be the case, for example, when the UE has already signaled with an operator affiliated. Application Function in the network, and the relevant information has been made available through the PCRF.
User plane protocol stack in EPSThe UP includes the layers below the end user IP, i.e. these protocols form the Layer 2 used for carrying the end user IP packets.The protocol structure is very similar to the CP.This highlights the fact that the whole system is designed for generic packet data transport, and both CP signaling and UP data are ultimately packet data. Only the volumes are different.
