The Besser Associates/Microwave Journal webcast series continues this month with a presentation on LTE Broadband Wireless Access with instructor Doug Morais.
- UMTS Evolution
- Some key LTE technologies, including OFDMA and SC-FDMA
- The 3GPP LTE standard
- Mobile WiMAX standard summary
- LTE and Mobile WiMAX comparison
Doug Morais has over 40 years of experience in wireless design and management. Before starting Adroit Wireless Strategies, a wireless consulting and training company, he held executive management positions at Harris Corporation, Digital Microwave Corporation, California Microwave Inc., and Ortel Corporation. At Harris, he held microwave radio design and engineering management positions for 11 years. He has authored several papers on digital microwave communications and the book Fixed Broadband Wireless Communications. He holds a U.S. patent that addresses point-to-multipoint microwave radio communications. He has a Ph.D in Electrical Engineering, is a senior and life member of the IEEE, and a member of the IEEE Communications Society.

This course provides an overview of the system architectures, principles involved, techniques applied, and performance achieved in UMTS’s Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband access (MBWA) system. The typical types of packet switched data conveyed by this system is studied. Key enabling technologies are presented including: relevant digital modulation techniques, error detection/correction methods, and multiple access and NLOS techniques employed in Point-to Multipoint (PMP) systems. The non-line-of-sight (NLOS) mobile wireless fading path is reviewed. The LTE network architecture and supporting protocols are introduced.Key physical layer and MAC features are presented. The key parameters of LTE’s UMTS predecessor, HSPA, as well as those of Mobile WiMAX are compared to those of LTE. Finally, the next evolution of LTE, i.e. LTE-advanced, is introduced.
