Abstract: The Evolved Packet System (EPS) comprises the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) specifications of the 3GPP mobile network standard, including evolved radio access network (E-UTRAN) and system architecture evolution (SAE). This talk provides an overview of the 3GPP mobile network evolution, including the following topics: from GSM over UMTS to LTE and LTE-Advanced: the roots of next generation mobile network standards; 3GPP standardization architecture: specification groups and their responsibilities; overview of the LTE/SAE system architecture; quality of service architecture; overview of E-UTRAN; outlook on LTE-Advanced and beyond; and, of course, femtocells in LTE. These general LTE-related topics as well as the specific femtocell architectural issues will pave the way for the subsequent technical presentations during the remainder of the week.
Biography: Dr. Andreas Maeder received his Ph.D. in 2008 at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany. The topic of his Ph.D. thesis was on radio resource management in integrated 3GPP UMTS/HSPA systems. Since 2008, he is affiliated with NEC Laboratories Europe, where he is working on next generation mobile networks, including LTE, LTE-Advanced, IEEE 802.16m, machine-to-machine communication, and Femtocells. He is involved in EU-projects FLAVIA and BeFEMTO, and in standardization of IEEE 802.16, FemtoForum and 3GPP. He is author of numerous publications in conferences, journals and book chapters, as well as patent applications.
