Mobile Communications

The third module “Mobile Communications” focuses on the evolution and core technologies of mobile communications and the corresponding mobile phones. The lectures introduce the differences in the generations of the mobile communications evolution, starting with the 1G (first generation) AMPS (Advanced Mobile Phone System) analog wireless mobile technology. Then the beginning of the digital revolution in mobile communications is introduced in 2G (second generation) technology based on GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications), IS-95, and cdmaOne (which is based on CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) technology). As GSM technology dominated the 2G mobile communications world, the key GSM features including GSM voice calls, data transfer, SMS (Short Message Service), and SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) card technology are introduced. Then the evolution to 3G (third generation) mobile communications technology is introduced based on UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System), WCDMA (Wideband CDMA), CDMA2000, CDMA2000 1xEV-DO, HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access), EV-DO Rev. A, HSPA+ (Evolved High Speed Packet Access), and EV-DO Rev. B (Evolution-Data Optimized Revision B) standards. Next, the current state-of-the-art in mobile communications, which is the 4G (fourth generation) technology based on LTE (Long-Term Evolution) and LTE-A (LTE-Advanced) is introduced....

4G & 5G Mobile Technology

The fourth module “4G & 5G Mobile Technologies” focuses on the architecture, core technologies, and features of mobile communications 4G (fourth generation) and 5G (fifth generation) systems. In module 4, a special focus on 4G and 5G systems is made because this is where all the current investments, research, development, and new services are being made. First, the current state-of-the-art 4G LTE (Long-Term Evolution) and LTE-A (LTE-Advanced) technology performance requirements are introduced focusing on the data rates, spectral efficiency, spectrum flexibility, performance at cell edges, and number of simultaneously active subscribers. Next, the LTE architecture based on the EPS (Evolved Packet System), which includes the EPC (Evolved Packet Core) and E-UTRAN (Evolved Universal Terrestrial RAN), and the UE (User Equipment) is described. EPC elements (i.e., P-GW (Packet Data Network Gateway), S-GW (Serving Gateway), and MME (Mobility Management Entity)) and the features of LTE core technologies (e.g., seamless HO (Handover), packet forwarding, MBMS (Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service), ICIC (Inter-Cell Interference Coordination), FFR (Fractional Frequency Reuse), DSA (Dynamic Subcarrier Assignment), CoMP (Coordinated Multi Point), CA (Carrier Aggregation), multi-RAT (Radio Access Technology), NOMA (Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access), advanced D2D (Device to Device), MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output), and OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing)) are introduced. Then the features of LTE HetNet (Heterogeneous Network), Small Cells, and SON (Self-Organizing Network) that include self-configuration and self-healing technology are explained. Next, the 5G standardization of ITU-R (ITU Radiocommunication Sector) IMT-2020 and 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) 5G NR are introduced and the differences in IMT 2020 5G target performance specifications compared to IMT Advanced based 4G LTE-A and IMT 2000 based 3G technology are discussed, followed by a description of the 3GPP 5G NR usage scenarios eMBB (enhanced Mobile BroadBand), URLLC (Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communication), and mMTC (massive Machine Type Communication). The 5G network architecture is introduced based on the NR (New Radio) access network and NGC (Next Generation Core), as well as the types of 5G deployment scenarios based on various NSA (Non-standalone) options.
