Fundamentals of Telecommunications - Unit 22

In stock
Unit overview
LTE defines a new radio interface, but also continues much of the good work in terms of the techniques introduced into 3G systems. This unit focuses on those concepts that were newly introduced into the network as part of the evolving 4G LTE standard. Overall architecture is explored, followed by a more detailed look at the radio interface and the evolution of the cellular concept to include more flexible deployment options.
