3GPP LTE Evolved Packet System & Application to Femtocells

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.
