LTE and Wireless web seminar series

1   Hour | Webcast - recorded

To learn more about DC-HSPA and IMS-SIP you are invited to join us for a series of two web seminars where you can interact with our experts on measurement basics and solutions for real-world applications:

  1. On-demand web seminar: New Challenges for UE Developers with Voice Transport Over LTE
  2. On-demand web seminar: HSPA+ and LTE: Test Challenges for Device Developers


1. New Challenges for UE Developers with Voice Transport Over LTE

23rd February at 4:00pm CET | Enroll/View the recording of the live broadcast


With increasing deployment of LTE, and with ever-increasing demands for hi-data throughput, we are witnessing faster transition to an all IP based network. While mobile applications continue to dominate demands on the mobile infrastructure, legacy traffic such as voice and services will provide fresh challenges in extracting deterministic performance from an IP based backbone provided by LTE. The new demands on end-to-end IP data performance will require frequent fallbacks from packet to circuit switched mechanisms, and added complexity in handovers between LTE and 2G/3G/3.5G.

This web seminar will discuss the challenges for mobile device developers in transporting voice on packet based networks, the relevance and evolution of VoLTE technologies, and the dependencies on handovers for achieving robust performance. It will also provide insights on testing needs and solutions from Keysight.

Who should attend?

Engineers working on LTE, LTE voice, SIP/IMS testing, and voice quality testing.

The Presenter: Sandy Fraser, Product Manager, Agilent Technologies

Sandy Fraser is a 25-year veteran of the RF and Microwave industry with expertise spanning DC to 100GHz applied to such diverse technologies as space and military products and Infrared. Sandy’s career includes over 15 years of experience with a cellular radio focus. During the last twelve years with Agilent Technologies, Sandy has focused on base station emulators for manufacturing test systems including the 8922 and the E5515. Today he is a leader in LTE technology awareness and training, specializing in LTE protocol and signaling. Sandy is a well published author and his papers and presentations are appreciated by a global audience. He holds a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Glasgow University.



2. HSPA+ and LTE: Test Challenges for Device Developers

15th March at 4:00pm CET | Enroll/view the recording of the live broadcast


LTE is “hot”. And so is 2G/3G/3.5G led by HSPA+. Both are getting redefined with new thresholds for high data throughput and an IP based transport. Demands on handset developers are unprecedented as they add more radios, implement the latest 4G wireless technologies seamlessly with legacy 2G/3G and support the performance needs of a multitude of applications.  

This web seminar discusses the trends and opportunity with HSPA+, and the challenges faced by handset developers in delivering reliable performance at high data rates. It provides insights on the test needs with dual-carrier HSDPA and HSPA+ implementation.

Who should view this webcast:
Wireless device developers working on multiple technologies especially HSPA and LTE.
