Feature Report: Small Cells Set to be a Big Part of LTE

RCR Wireless News takes a deep dive into the current small cell space as it relates to LTE deployments, talking with carriers, analysts and equipment and technology providers on how the market is currently playing out and where they expect the market to be headed in...

Agilent forges ahead with LTE-Advanced 8×8 MIMO testing

Agilent Technologies recently introduced what it claims is the industry’s first signal generator and analysis product for LTE-Advanced 8x8 MIMO. LTE-Advanced is designed to enable peak data rates of up to 1 gigabit per second on the downlink and up to 500 megabits per second...

Feature Report: LTE Device Ecosystem: The Future Brought to Life

The number of LTE devices and manufacturers is exploding. This special report explores how the transition to LTE networks is changing the device ecosystem from design to test and repair, and the factors that affect a successful LTE device launch. Spectrum fragmentation, the proliferation...

Reader Forum: Cloud radio access and small cell networks based on RapidIO

The wireless radio access network must evolve significantly to satisfy the end user quality-of-experience re-quirements associated with mobile data and video traffic.

LTE N.A. 2012: Small cells, LTE-Advanced dominate conference

DALLAS – Small cells and network evolutions beyond LTE dominated conversations – or at least the agenda – during the opening day of the 2012 LTE North America conference in Dallas, as attendees seemed to have moved beyond the still ongoing commercial deployments of...

Reader Forum: LTE and the need for nanosecond-accurate network timing

Because LTE has been introduced in a somewhat staggered fashion and the true “4G” as defined by the International Telecommunications Union is yet to come in the form of LTE-Advanced,

Feature Report: LTE Deployment: Getting It Right the First Time

There is no doubt that the wireless space is in the midst of one of the greatest technological transformations since its inception. This is being led by carriers moving away from legacy 2G and 3G networks, that were loosely based on 1G services, and...

White Paper: LTE-Advanced – Carrier Aggregation

Achieving the requirements for carrier aggregation detailed in Release 10 of the 3GPP LTE specifications is even more challenging given the fragmentation of the available cellular radio spectrum, particularly in North America. Learn about carrier aggregation testing implications for LTE-Advanced. This is an Anritsu...

Analyst Angle: Why small is the next big thing for mobile networks

The case for deploying smaller cell configurations – such as picocells, microcells and femtocells – to supplement traditional macro-cell-network architectures, both for LTE and existing 3G networks, is becoming more compelling as traditional macro cells will soon not be able to cope with traffic demand in urban areas.

ITU finalizes LTE-Advanced, WirelessMAN-Advanced as ‘4G’ technologies

The International Telecommunication Union announced the specifications for next-generation mobile technologies – IMT-Advanced or 4G – after the ITU Radiocommunication Assembly meeting in Geneva. The ITU reported that LTE-Advanced and WirelessMAN-Advanced technologies would be accorded the official designation of IMT-Advanced, comprising requirements for 4G...

Carriers see small cells as key to LTE-Advanced

With LTE North America just a few days away, many carriers are focused on the standard's next generation: LTE-Advanced. LTE-Advanced may finally offer "true 4G" data rates, with stationary peaks of 1 Gbps, and carriers say small cells are the key to achieving this....

100 billion cellular enabled devices by 2020

Speaking at the IEF conference in Germany's the Technische Universitat in Dresden, Gerhard Fettweis, Vodafone chair professor told his audience he believed 100 billion cellular devices would be connected using LTE in less than a decade.
