3/24/2011 LTE Channel Structure 3
Studying all technologies from
GSM to LTE.
Revised the GSM content from previous courses
taken.
Concentrate on the 3G and its evolution HSDPA,
which
Have similarities with LTE.
Studied HSDPA and LTE overview from the
book"academic
press 3G evolution.
Studied LTE prerequisites(MIMO and OFDM)
from the bookLTE for UMTS- SCFDMA and
OFDM.
The studying is done through studying groups

Studying the planning and
dimensioning of all networks
Studied the overall planning steps common in all
networks.
As we know the dimensioning is a fertile field
which has many methods.
Every study group took a book and studied the
dimensioning process of GSM to 3G.
The books are 3G deployment guide,
understanding 3G planning process &
evolved cellular network planning and
optimization.
Concentrate on LTE dimensioning by searching
and reading many sources like Ericssons files

Dividing the LTE
dimensioning tool into blocks
e believed that a dream without a plan is just a wis
o we divided the project in blocks that can be finishe
en connected to each other and tested.
he blocks are Coverage(UL-DL), Capacity(UL-DL), the
erations algorithm.
he LTE capacity can be done in several method so th
ock is further divided into 3 blocks rings method,
icssons method & modulation based method.
group is responsible for one block with its JAVA code
e exhanged knowledge between US throughout
e project.

Coverage dimensioning

verage dimensioning is different from previous netw


ce the access technique is differentOFDM.
e first task is to calculate a case study manually to g
miliar with the calculations and units.
en a study of the effect of main parameters on cove
e power, loading, interference margin and number o
orough Matlab simulations.
VA coding starts and then we test the results of the c
th the case study done manually before.

Rings method

we said before there is a lot of similarities between


DPA and LTE technologies.
e capacity dimensioning in HSDPA is done through ri
thod.
e tilt is a vital parameter in this method which deter
e F(interference factor) of each ring through tables.
e idea lies in dividing the cell into a number of rings,
h a different SNIR,F(interference factor) and thus
oughput.
e total throughout of the cell is calculated from the
erage summations over all the rings.

Ericssons method

cssons capacity dimensioning is based on 3 main


uations.
culating the average interference margin in the cell
m it we can calculate the average SNIR any user can
perience in the cell.
m which we can calculate the bit rate/RB and thus t
l capacity if we have the system bandwidth(no. of RB
