Practical Introduction to LTE Radio Planning

  title={Practical Introduction to LTE Radio Planning},
  author={Joonas Salo and M. Nur-Alam and Kyunghi Chang},
This paper reviews basics of radio planning for 3GPP LTE. Both coverage-limited and interference-limited scenarios are considered. For the coverage-limited scenario LTE link budget is compared to that of 3GPP Release 8 HSPA+ with 2x2 MIMO. It is shown that, given the same 5MHz bandwidth, both systems have similar cell ranges but, for a given target bit rate, there exists an optimum LTE system bandwidth that maximizes cell range in both uplink and downlink. For the interference-limited scenario… CONTINUE READING
