LTE Case Studies & Reports

Oct 9, 2014: According to a new report by Allied Market Research, titled "Global Lawful Interception Market (Solutions, Components, Network Technology, Communication Technology, End User, and Geography)- Opportunity Analysis and Forecast-2013-2020", the global lawful interception market is forecast to reach $2.1 billion by 2020, growi

Paris, 10 July 2014 – To mark the start of the 8th annual Assises du Très Haut Débit symposium, IDATE is releasing its ranking of countries that lead the way in ultra-fast fixed and mobile broadband subscriber numbers, in Europe and worldwide.

4G/LTE subscriptions will reach 85 percent in North America and 30 percent in Europe in 2019, according to latest Ericsson Mobility Report. Globally, LTE subscriptions are predicted to reach 2.6 billion by 2019, representing around 30 percent of total mobile subscriptions.

May 14, 2014 - According to a new report by Allied Market Research titled " LTE Market (TDD, FDD, LTE Advance) - Global Opportunity Analysis and Forecast - 2012-2020", the LTE market is to soar as high as $997 billion by 2020, experiencing a CAGR of 58.2% during 2013-2020.

While LMR systems have effectively support mission-critical voice and low-bandwidth data applications for many years, they fail to provide the high-speed data performance necessary to support the multimedia applications on which today’s Public Safety agencies increasingly rely upon.

There are more than 7.2 billion wireless connections, including 1.45 billion LTE connections, around the world today that are operating with the technology standards developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) [Ovum].

Interference is inherent to any LTE-A HetNet deployment; LTE-A offers a variety of complex and advanced techniques at both the network and the device level to mitigate this interference. 

A digital transformation brought about through the power of connectivity is taking place in almost every industry. This transformation sets the scene for the next generation of wireless access – 5G – systems that are set for commercial availability sometime around 2020.

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) provides a new path that can increase the flexibility required by mobile service providers and network operators to adapt and accommodate this dynamic market environment.

This 4G Americas white paper describes in detail the recommendations and best practices for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Rich Communications Service (RCS) implementations and offerings.

“Signalling in EPC/LTE” course focuses on signalling between EPS/LTE nodes within GPRS Tunnelling Protocol (GTP) based Evolved Packet Core (EPC)* network. During the course all protocols and signalling procedures on all interfaces (i.e.

Unlike previous 3GPP wireless technologies, LTE has no Circuit Switched (CS) bearer to support voice, so carrying voice over LTE requires a migration to a Voice over IP (VoIP) solution.

The 3GPP evolution for the 3G mobile system created the new base station system, called Evolved UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) and a new core network, called Evolved Packet Core (EPC) as a result of two standardisation projects: Long Term Evolution (LTE) and System Architecture Evolution (SAE).

“Signalling in E-UTRAN/LTE” course focuses on signalling between EPS/LTE nodes within E-UTRAN. During the course all protocols and signalling procedures on all interfaces (i.e. Uu, X2 and S1) within E-UTRAN are presented in details. The course also describes overview of EPS architecture and system wide signalling procedures, including EPC - E-UTRAN interworking.

The CS FallBack (CSFB)  in EPS enables the provisioning of voice and other CS-domain services (e.g. CS UDI video, LCS, USSD) by reuse of CS infrastructure when the UE is served by E-UTRAN. A CSFB enabled terminal, connected to E-UTRAN may use GERAN or UTRAN to connect to the CS-domain.
