Technical Director and RF Lead
The growing demand for increased data rates and the surging volume of data traffic volumes have been behind the main push for the evolving 3GPP cellular standards. In order to meet those stringent network demands, the UE will need to evolve in the future to support the different 3GPP HSPA and LTE configurations required. Ultimately, 3GPP Rel-10 LTE-Advanced or True-4G enables peak data rates exceeding 1Gbps. This presentation will focus on reviewing some current 3G mobile platforms, then discussing key system challenges which the evolved UE configurations will impose on future cellular mobile platforms, and last but not least, some new RF architecture concepts going forward.
