  • This course considers the latest technology development in wireless communications, LTE and LTE Advanced, some times referred to as "4G". These systems are high performing and represent "state-of-the-art" in many aspects. A central part of this course is to give detailed knowledge of the communication methods that are used in down-link and in up-link,respectively, that make these high performance increases possible. This course also includes trends for future system solutions. The aim of this course is to give good knowledge concerning principles, concepts, functioning, performance and limitations for such systems for mobile communications.
  • Fundamental limits for the bit rate - capacity results and interpretations. Spectrum flexibility. OFDM - multi user communications. Systems with multiple antennas. Adaptive mechanisms in connection with variations in channal quality in the downlink and in the uplink. Transmission methods in the downlink and in the uplink. The physical layer. Control signals base station - mobile. Receiver structures. Performance for LTE and LTE Advanced. Trends for future systems.
