LTE Mobile Systems

This online course describes mobility in, and the provision of services over, LTE (4G) mobile systems. This course also discusses how the enhanced performance provided by an LTE Advanced system is achieved. 

LTE Mobile Systems

Course Description

This course by PTT builds on the information given in the PTT course LTE (4G) Mobile Radio Networks to describe mobility in, and the provision of services over, LTE systems including the various methods of providing telephony over an LTE system. The course begins by describing how an LTE mobile system delivers the appropriate quality of service for the services it delivers. The role of the various protocols employed by the evolved packet core is described and the procedures involved in mobility management explained.  The various ways of providing a telephony service over the all-IP evolved packet core are described including “Voice over LTE” (VoLTE). The basic functions of the key components of an IP Multimedia Sub-system (IMS) in providing a VoLTE service are described. Finally, the methods employed to provide the enhance... Read More »
