Information for Presenters
LTE is poised to be the most
significant communications technology of all time. LTE
is being deployed globally and over the course of this
decade it will become the mobile broadband solution for
billions of people. For billions of others, it will be
their only broadband connection, rapidly displacing
wireline approaches. Nearly all major cellular operators
have committed to adopting LTE. LTE is not a one-time
technology but rather it is a platform for continual
innovation. The purpose of this workshop meeting is to
understand the ways that LTE will evolve through
LTE-Advanced and the implications on networks, spectrum,
applications, and broadband in general.
This workshop will examine the opportunities, issues,
and evolving architectures. Items under consideration
for this meeting include:
- Expected performance under
different deployment configurations.
- Spectrum bands to be used.
- Multi-mode considerations
- Wi-Fi coexistence (e.g. LTE at
2.6 GHz with Wi-Fi at 2.4 GHz)
- Peer-to-peer communications
including mobile-terminated traffic.
- IPv6 and strategies for
- M2M opportunities and issues.
- Carrier aggregation including
expected typical configurations.
- HetNet expected gains and issues.
- Coordinated Multipoint
Transmission (CoMP) gains and timeframe.
- IP Flow Mobility and Seamless
Offload for smart offload.
- Relays including usage scenarios.
- QoS opportunities and challenges.
Note that presenters and
many of the attendees, are world leading technologists on
the subject material. We allocate sufficient time for
discussion that attendees can ask questions of greatest
interest. Moreover, the workshops allow informal
networking during breaks where attendees can exchange

4:00 to 5:00. Demonstrations
available at the Ericsson Experience Center.
LTE Video Upstream enabled broadcast cameras will
demonstrate LTE's low latency and high bandwidth
features to ensure broadcast quality live video.
In a Networked Society, we will see that when
everything is connected the world will change.
Envision how this will evolve by seeing an example
of how an industry like healthcare providers will be
able to use the existing networks to provide live
interactive video between a visiting nurse and a
doctor who can use voice, video and file transfer
solutions to improve the care for a patient.
Today the communications networks have incredible
power, and the service development capability is at
hand to take advantage of these systems by
developers. Focusing on the new core infrastructure
of modern Broadband and 4G networks, many new and
previously unavailable capabilities are now easily
within reach. Our demonstration will show how these
services can be used focusing on Ericssons solution
