Maximize your LTE Network – understanding how new advanced capabilities can maximize network efficiency and the user experience

Day 3

Based on independent drive test data collected in commercial LTE networks from around the world, SRG will showcase how some leading LTE operators are taking full advantage of commercially-available features to maximize the performance of their LTE networks. These features include the combination of 256-QAM and 3-carrier CA, which when deployed in a macro and/or small cell network substantially boost end user data rates and increase network / spectral efficiency. In the uplink direction, there is 64-QAM and uplink CA, which more than offset the widening gap between downlink and uplink speeds, thus addressing a critical element of the overall user experience while enabling the network to meet the growing amount of uplink data traffic. Finally, there is the EVS voice codec, which was specifically introduced with LTE in mind. Although AMR-WB delivers HD voice, EVS achieves the same voice quality while requiring fewer network resources, or it delivers superior voice quality with comparable network resource requirements.
