LTE evolution, IoT and the road to 5G seminar
For the first time, Rohde & Schwarz France is pleased to invite you to the free LTE evolution, IoT and the road to 5G seminar : Thursday, 9th march 2017
UMTS Long Term Evolution, short LTE, is the technology of choice for the majority of network operators worldwide, providing mobile broadband data and high-speed internet access to their subscriber base. Due to the high commitment, LTE is understood as the innovation platform for the wireless industry for the next decade. Worldwide more than 400 operators have launched LTE, using more than 800 devices supporting currently about 31 bands only in FDD mode. As a big success story we have seen LTE as the fastest growing mobile communication technology ever, but on the other side the huge flexibility represents huge challenges especially to cope with the increased demand of various services. To fulfill the requirements of future application the LTE technology is permanently updated and this technology is constantly evolving.
This class will provide you with some technology details regarding the LTE technology evolution with focus on 3GPP Rel. 13 and an outlook on Rel. 14.
Additionally recently the marketing term Internet of Things IOT gains more and more momentum in the industry. This seminar would like to give a short overview of the major technologies involved in this IOT environment, not only belonging to the cellular infrastructure but also to the non-cellular background. This comprises technologies like Bluetooth evolution into BT low energy, WLAN evolution, new radio technologies ranging from NFC up to words like Zigbee or Z-wave to only mention some of those.
Beside the LTE technology evolution, standardization and trials have been started on the mobile communication network beyond LTE, so called 5G, the 5th generation of mobile networks. Goal of this seminar is to provide an overview of the major requirements, standardization situation and major technology aspects of the 5G. Buzzwords are for example an increased spectrum efficiency, new radio concept for the physical layer, massive MIMO, multiple access schemes and higher frequency and higher bandwidth usage to only mention a few of the technology aspects currently under discussion.
Agenda – LTE evolution, IoT and the road to 5G
- 8.30 to 9.00 am : Registration, continental breakfast
- 9.00 to 9.30 am : Keynote “5G: Can we make it by 2020?” (Mérouane Debbah)
If we look at some of the goals of 5G versus where we are today, we can see the gap that has to be bridged over the nextfew years. The goal of 1ms latency is nearly 50x better than current LTE systems. In order to go from 100Mbps per user to10Gbps, we need 100x the throughput per connection. The current 10,000 connections per square kilometer needs to increaseto 1Million connections, which corresponds to 100x increase in density. Reliable communications today with LTE top out about350km/h and we expect to bring that up by 1.5x to 500km/h . Finally, the current core networks and backhaul/fronthaul areinflexible with wasted pools of bandwidth. The introduction of SDN/NFV will allow much better ability to chop up and virtualizethe network resources for lower operational costs and capital costs and much greater flexibility. In this talk, we will give anupdate on standardization process and the challenges ahead for a true deployment by 2020
- 9.30 to 10.30 am : LTE evolution aspects: Rel. 13 with outlook on Rel. 14 (Reiner Stuhlfauth)
Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the technology of choice for the majority of network operators worldwide, providing mobile broadbanddata and high-speed internet access to their subscriber base. Worldwide more than 400 operators have launched LTE, using morethan 800 devices. This big success story has seen LTE as the fastest growing mobile communication technology ever, and bringsongoing challenges to improve and enhance the technology. The name alone, “LTE-Advanced” (LTE-A) shows that this technologyis constantly evolving and advancing, bring greater benefits to the user’s and network operators.This seminar will provide details about the technical capabilities of LTE contained in the latest 3GPP releases technology withfocus on 3GPP Rel. 13 and an outlook on Rel. 14.
- 10.30 to 10.45 am : Coffee Break
- 10.45 to 11.30 am : Internet of Things IOT aspects (Reiner Stuhlfauth)
Additionally Internet of Things (IoT) is gaining more awareness and momentum. This seminar will give a short overview of themajor technologies involved in IoT, discussing those belonging to cellular with emerging standards such as Narrowband IoT (NBIoT)and non-cellular access with initial deployments of IoT Low Power WANs (such as LoRa and SigFox). The latter touches ontechnologies like Bluetooth’s evolution to BT low energy, WLAN evolution, new radio technologies including NFC, Zigbee andZ-wave, to name a few.
- 11.30 to 4.30 pm : The road to 5G - Requirements, air interface and network aspects (Reiner Stuhlfauth)
Beside the LTE technology evolution, standardization and trials have been started on the mobile communication network beyondLTE, so called 5G, the 5th generation of mobile networks. Goal of this seminar is to provide an overview of the major requirements,standardization situation and major technology aspects of the 5G. Buzzwords are for example an increased spectrum efficiency,new radio concept for the physical layer, massive MIMO, multiple access schemes and higher frequency and higher bandwidthusage to only mention a few of the technology aspects currently under discussion.
With lunch provided by Rohde & Schwarz (12.30 to 1.30 pm)
With a Coffee Break (2.45 to 3.00 pm)
- 4.30 to 5.00 pm : Q&A and discussion
