  3. 3. Page 3 Wireless and Cellular Networks - History In 1905, Guglielmo Marconi invented the first Radio application for Naval requirements In 1912, with the drowning of the Titanic, Radio communications became essential In 1930, the First mobile transmitter was developed. First – Simplex communications.
  4. 4. Page 4 Wireless and Cellular Networks - History In 1935, FM – Frequency Modulation developed. Later used in WW2 by the US In 1942, a Patent for Frequency Hoping was registered by actress Hedy Lamarr and composer George Antheil. Later developed to CDMA. They called it “Secret Communication System ” During the years 1946-1968, wireless communications developed for government services – Police, Fire departments etc…

In the early-mid 80’s, various technologies came, like WLL, LMDS, and Wireless LAN. In the mid-late 90’s, development of 2.0G+ cellular networks, along with the emerging of wireless data networks. Since the early 2000’s, fast cellular and wireless services, along with advanced, IP- Based services

  8. 8. Page 8 Some Wireless Principles – Radio Communications In wireless / mobile communications, the principle is to get the maximum capacity from the air, or what called – the air interface. For this purpose, we use the following techniques: Frequency bands – that we are allowed to use (Government Licenses) Modulation – that carry the information over the radio waves Multiplexing – that shared the air interface between different users.

  25. 25. Page 25 The 2.0G Networks The critical problem in 1.0G was capacity. The main requirement was to increase it These requirements brought several new technologies: The general characteristics of Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) CDMA - Code Division Multiple Access Promise to significantly increase the efficiency of cellular telephone systems to allow a greater number of simultaneous conversations.
  26. 26. Page 26 The GSM Network GSM, or Global System for Mobile Communications, is a second generation technology. The focus in GSM was to support roaming throughout Europe. An ETSI standard. In use all around the world. GSM is not only an air interface standard, but includes the entire network. Of the numerous individual standards that define an entire GSM network, only a small portion deal directly with the air interface. That air interface was standardized to be TDMA.

  29. 29. Page 29 GPRS and EDGE for Early Data Applications The two key benefits of GPRS were: Better use of radio and network resources Completely transparent IP support GPRS optimises the use of network and radio resources. It uses radio resources only when there is data to be sent or received. GPRS have added two major components, that are still used in cellular data networks: GGSN (Gateway GPRS Support Node) {DHCP and FW} – for filtering and firewall, Charge collections and PDN access SGSN (Serving GPRS Support Node) {Switch} – for Authentication, Authorisation, Encryption, Compression, Mobility management, Charge collection, BSS interface EDGE was a Pre-3.0G network, that improved data-rate by better modulation techniques

  37. 37. Page 37 HSPA - HSDPA / HSUPA / HSPA+ High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) is a generic term adopted by the UMTS Forum to refer to improvements in the UMTS Radio Interface HSPA refers to both the improvements made in the UMTS downlink, often referred to as High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and the improvements made in the uplink, often referred to as High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) HSPA Releases: Release 5 - HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) Downlink – 14.4Mbps, Uplink – 384Kbps Release 6 - HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access) Downlink – 14.4Mbps, Uplink - 5.76Mbps Release 7 - HSPA+ Downlink – 56.0Mbps, Uplink - 22.0Mbps
  38. 38. Page 38 HSDPA - High Speed Downlink Packet Access Technology changes: A new common High Speed Downlink Shared Channel (HS-DSCH) which can be simultaneously shared by multiple users The usage of multiple codes with Spreading Factor 16 (SF-16) for the downlink transfer of data The use of a shorter Transmission Time Interval (TTI) of 2ms, which enables higher speed transmission in the physical layer, The use of fast scheduling The use of Adaptive Modulation and Coding (AMC), The use of fast retransmission based on fast Hybrid Automatic Response reQuest (HARQ) techniques. Bandwidth: Downlink – 14.4Mbps, Uplink – 384Kbps
  39. 39. Page 39 HSDPA Categories
  40. 40. Page 40 HSUPA - High Speed Uplink Packet Access Similarly to HSDPA in the downlink, HSUPA defines a new radio interface for the uplink communication. The overall goal is to improve the coverage and throughput as well as to reduce the delay of the uplink dedicated transport channels. Technology changes: A new dedicated uplink channel, Introduction of H-ARQ, Fast Node B scheduling. Bandwidth: Downlink – 14.4Mbps, Uplink – 5.76Mbps
  41. 41. Page 41 HSPA+ (Evolved HSPA) HSPA+ provides HSPA data rates up to 56 Mbit/s on the downlink and 22 Mbit/s on the uplink through the use of: 2*2 MIMO - Multiple-Input Multiple Output - multiple-antenna technique Higher order modulation (64QAM) Bandwidth: Data rates of up to 56Mbit/s (D) and 22Mbit/s (U) represent theoretical peak sector speeds. The actual speed for a user is lower. Future revisions of HSPA+ support up to 168 Mbit/s using multiple carriers.
  42. 42. Page 42 HSPA+ and MIMO technology MIMO on CDMA based systems acts like virtual sectors to give extra capacity closer to the mast.
  43. 43. Page 43 HSPA+ All-IP Network Architecture HSPA+ also introduces an optional all-IP architecture for the network where base stations are directly connected to IP based backhaul and then to the ISP's edge routers. The technology also delivers significant battery life improvements and dramatically quicker wake-from-idle time - delivering a true always-on connection. HSPA+ should not be confused with LTE, which uses a new air interface.

SAE is the evolution of the GPRS Core Network, with some differences. The main principles and objectives of the LTE-SAE architecture include: A common anchor point and gateway (GW) node for all access technologies IP-based protocols on all interfaces All IP network - Simplified (and much cheaper!) network architecture All services are via Packet Switched domain Support mobility between heterogeneous RATs, including legacy systems as GPRS, but also non-3GPP systems (say WiMAX)

  63. 63. Page 63 Downlink Scheme - OFDM LTE uses OFDM for the downlink – that is, from the base station to the terminal. OFDM meets the LTE requirement for spectrum flexibility and enables cost-efficient solutions for very wide carriers with high peak rates. OFDM uses a large number of narrow sub- carriers for multi-carrier transmission. FDM OFDM User 1User 1User 1User 1 User 2User 2User 2User 2 OFDMA Single user on every channel Multiple users on every channel
  64. 64. Page 64 Uplink Scheme - SC-FDMA The LTE uplink transmission scheme for FDD and TDD mode is based on SC- FDMA (Single Carrier Frequency Division - Multiple Access). This is to compensate for a drawback with normal OFDM, which has a very high Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR). High PAPR requires expensive and inefficient power amplifiers with high requirements on linearity, which increases the cost of the terminal and also drains the battery faster. SC-FDMA solves this problem by grouping together the resource blocks in such a way that reduces the need for linearity, and so power consumption, in the power amplifier. A low PAPR also improves coverage and the cell-edge performance. Still, SC-FDMA signal processing has some similarities with OFDM signal processing, so parameterization of downlink and uplink can be harmonized.
  65. 65. Page 65 Multiple Antenna Techniques MIMO employs multiple transmit and receive antennas to substantially enhance the air interface. It uses space-time coding of the same data stream mapped onto multiple transmit antennas, which is an improvement over traditional reception diversity schemes where only a single transmit antenna is deployed to extend the coverage of the cell. MIMO processing also exploits spatial multiplexing, allowing different data streams to be transmitted simultaneously from the different transmit antennas, to increase the end-user data rate and cell capacity. In addition, when knowledge of the radio channel is available at the transmitter (e.g. via feedback information from the receiver), MIMO can also implement beam-forming to further increase available data rates and spectrum efficiency

  67. 67. Page 67 Beamforming Beamforming is a technique whereby the receiver (typically at a base-station) adjusts its transmission or more typically reception parameters, so as to concentrate on particular parts of the cell and not in others. The purpose of beamforming is to Maximize the receptivity from the user and two, Minimize receptivity from a noise source. The diagram below shows how this works

  70. 70. Page 70 TD-LTE and FD-LTE (TD-CDMA and FD-CDMA) The two modulation schemes available in LTE have a high degree of commonality. The differences exist to accommodate the fact that TD-LTE uses the same pipe to transmit and receive. The discontinuous nature of uplink and downlink, however, means operators have the flexibility to adapt the UL/DL traffic ratio. This feature allows operators to support different traffic types and symmetry, a common feature with rich content and video delivery.

  73. 73. Page 73 SON – Self Organized Network The term Self-Organizing Network (SON) is generally taken to mean a cellular network in which the tasks of configuring, operating, and optimizing are largely automated. SON focuses mostly on the radio-access, which is the most consuming resource in the cellular network One objective of SON is to eliminate as much pre-planning of network configuration as possible. SON does allow for pre-planned network configurations, but strongly encourages as much of the network configuration be automatically generated / discovered as possible
