3GPP LTE
LTE focus is on:
enhancement of the Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRA) optimisation of the UTRAN architecture

With HSPA (downlink and uplink), UTRA will remain highly competitive for
several years

LTE project aims to ensure the continued competitiveness of the 3GPP


technologies for the future

Motivations
Need for PS optimized system
Evolve UMTS towards packet only system

Need for higher data rates


Can be achieved with HSDPA/HSUPA and/or new air interface defined by 3GPP LTE

Need for high quality of services


Use of licensed frequencies to guarantee quality of services Always-on experience (reduce control plane latency significantly) Reduce round trip delay

Need for cheaper infrastructure


Simplify architecture, reduce number of network elements Most data users are less mobile

May 2008

The sequence used for the primary synchronization signal is generated from a frequency-domain Zadoff-Chu sequence

Secondary synchronization signal


The sequence used for the second synchronization signal is an interleaved concatenation of two length-31 binary sequences The concatenated sequence is scrambled with a scrambling sequence given by the primary synchronization signal The combination of two length-31 sequences defining the secondary synchronization signal differs between subframe 0 and subframe 5 according to
( s0m0 ) (n)c0 (n ) in subframe 0 d ( 2n) = ( m ) s1 1 (n)c0 (n ) in subframe 5 ( ( s1 m1 ) (n)c1 (n )z1 m0 ) (n ) in subframe 0 d (2n + 1) = ( m ) (m ) s0 0 (n)c1 (n )z1 1 (n ) in subframe 5

LTE Scheduling

Multiuser diversity Frequency diversity scheduling
UEs are allocated to distributed resource blocks (combs) Not available in UL

Frequency selective scheduling: user specific


Each UE is allocated its individual best part of the spectrum Best use of the spectrum OFDMA exploits channel capacity Sufficient feedback information on channel conditions from UE required

Three Link Adaptation Techniques


Adaptive transmission bandwidth Averaged channel conditions, UE capability and Required data rate considered Fast Freq. Selective Fading channel dependent scheduling Transmission power control Guarantee the required packet error rate and bit error rate Tradeoff between fairness and system throughput Adaptive modulation and channel coding rate (AMC) Increases the achievable data rate (frequency efficiency) according to the channel conditions

Guideline for E-UTRAN UE capabilities*


The definition of the following UE classes are proposed
Note: For simplification reasons, the table only depict the UE capabilities in terms of uplink and downlink peak data rates supported. However, it should be noted that further discussion on other features is expected once the work progresses.

It may require further discussion whether there be a need for an additional


terminal class between 2 Mbps and 50 Mbps classes. discussions in 3GPP RAN working groups.

The above given data rates are indicative and should be subject for further The definition of the required parameters/features is for further study for each
of the classes. For instance, half-duplex UEs form a specific category that may be frequency band specific.
