This book provides an insight into the key practical aspectsand best practice of 4G-LTE network design, performance, anddeployment
Design, Deployment and Performance of 4G-LTENetworks addresses the key practical aspects and bestpractice of 4G networks design, performance, and deployment. Inaddition, the book focuses on the end-to-end aspects of the LTEnetwork architecture and different deployment scenarios ofcommercial LTE networks. It describes the air interface of LTEfocusing on the access stratum protocol layers: PDCP, RLC, MAC, andPhysical Layer. The air interface described in this book covers theconcepts of LTE frame structure, downlink and uplink scheduling,and detailed illustrations of the data flow across the protocollayers. It describes the details of the optimization processincluding performance measurements and troubleshooting mechanismsin addition to demonstrating common issues and case studies basedon actual field results. The book provides detailed performanceanalysis of key features/enhancements such as C-DRX for Smartphonesbattery saving, CSFB solution to support voice calls with LTE, andMIMO techniques.
The book presents analysis of LTE coverage and link budgetsalongside a detailed comparative analysis with HSPA+. Practicallink budget examples are provided for data and VoLTE scenarios.Furthermore, the reader is provided with a detailed explanation ofcapacity dimensioning of the LTE systems. The LTE capacity analysisin this book is presented in a comparative manner with reference tothe HSPA+ network to benchmark the LTE network capacity. The bookdescribes the voice options for LTE including VoIP protocol stack,IMS Single Radio Voice Call Continuity (SRVCC). In addition, keyVoLTE features are presented: Semi-persistent scheduling (SPS), TTIbundling, Quality of Service (QoS), VoIP with C-DRX, Robust HeaderCompression (RoHC), and VoLTE Vocoders and De-Jitter buffer. Thebook describes several LTE and LTE-A advanced features in theevolution from Release 8 to 10 including SON, eICIC, CA, CoMP,HetNet, Enhanced MIMO, Relays, and LBS.
This book can be used as a reference for best practices in LTEnetworks design and deployment, performance analysis, and evolutionstrategy.
