This course is about understanding the architecture of LTE 4G. The operation and protocols involved in LTE. What happens when you power on your smart phone and how it gets attached to the network. Students and working professionals who want to take a fundamental dive into familiarizing themselves with 4G should take this course. If you are looking for advanced concepts such as air interface and scheduling or mathematical computations this is NOT the course for you. The course is 100% video lectures based with extensive exercises to improve and retain your learning.
The course is divided into 7 sections starting from 3GPP wireless communication history, LTE architecture, how LTE is different, Control and user plane concept in LTE, Protocols and Operation involved. In the conclusion section , you will also learn about Cellular Network Ecosystem and business model.
If you want to get nutshell overview on LTE Fundamental in less time , yes and firm understanding you don't to miss this course. See you on the other side.
In this lecture, you learn how technology progress on a timeline after a decade of gap i.e. (history of 4G technology). When the LTE is actually deployed? What is the current Existing technology, which you use it on your smart everywhere?
3.9 or approx LTE or LTE Advanced. What is the right terminology to use ?
Here you will know the difference between 3.9G and true 4G or LTE advanced. Their data rates, bandwidth capacity etc.
Comparison on how LTE and LTE Advanced are different from each other.
Highlighting What are the similarities among the two ?
Here you learn the comparison between LTE and LTE advanced in terms of Peak throughput, Peak & Average spectrum efficiency, Control & User plane latency.
In this module, we learn about the 3GPP technologies, difference between 3.9G & 4G and the reason behind the arrival of any existing and incoming technologies.
Here in this lecture, you learn types of network in LTE or 4G i.e. Access network & Core network and advantage of cellular technology. Access network comprises of base station & user equipment module While Core network comprises of nodes for registration and attachment procedures and is connected to the rest of the world.
Lecture contains RAN and Core architecture and the procedures, how a user gets connected to the network and use high speed internet after buying a phone and nodes & interfaces involved in this registration procedure.
In this lecture you will learn the naming conventions used for LTE technology and interfaces used for communication b/w different nodes. Only Packet technology is used in these Nodes.
In this lecture we will study the major functionalities of EPC or Core network and responsibility of nodes in EPC when user is in continuously mobile mode
In this lecture, we will learn the basic function of E-NodeB which is in the RAN part.
In this module we learn elements between Core & Access networks, Nodes present between user and rest of the world and their functions and the major difference between RAN & Core part.
In this lecture, we will learn how LTE is being different and efficient from other existing technologies
How LTE removed the role of RNC (Radio Network Controller) as a separate nodes in order to avoid any worst case scenario and reduces the number of Nodes so that less processing work done by the system and introduces neighbor relationship b/w Nodes.
LTE is the most flexible technology and it can be deployed in 6 different spectrums. It can be deployed either in FDD or TDD or half duplex FDD and we say it’s the next global standard in the world.
In this module, we learn the LTE characteristics and the targets which we will achieve using this technology. What is real 4G and difference between FDD & TDD?
In this lecture, we learn the concepts of User and Control plane, nodes involved in Control plane and the operations of different nodes when you power on your mobile phone.
In this lecture, we learn the nodes involved In User plane and their functions.
In this module, we learn about Control and User Plane, their existing nodes & the registration process involved.
We learn about the protocols stack running on Control plane and their operations.
We learn about the protocols stack running on User plane and their operations.
In this lecture, we learn Job scenarios for Engineers and Professionals in cellular technology ecosystem, their Job roles and its details.
In this module we learn , how in cellular ecosystem, we first make a business plan with designing, site allocation, resources for site allocation, Integration, RF work, Launching and Optimization Phase works.
This slide includes a conclusive arguments on various topics related to LTE fundamental like LTE architecture, terminologies, protocols that runs on User and Control plane and how LTE Is different & efficient from previous technologies.
