The course describes the physical layer (layer 1) aspects of the LTE (E-UTRA) radio interface. Downlink and uplink control channels for synchronization, scheduling, hybrid-ARQ operation and feedback signalling are described in detail.

The course describes the physical layer (layer 1) aspects of the LTE (E-UTRA) radio interface. Downlink and uplink control channels for synchronization, scheduling, hybrid-ARQ operation and feedback signalling are described in detail.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge regarding the architecture, terminology and modes of operation of the LTE radio access network is highly recommended. Knowledge about UMTS High Speed Packet Access concepts is useful but not mandatory.
