Webinar Overview

The constantly growing demand for higher data rates in mobile devices is causing network operators to develop ways to cope with the mobile capacity crunch. The use of unlicensed spectrum (WLAN) has become a key enabler.

Carrying more than half of the wireless Internet traffic, WLAN is the leading technology for delivering ubiquitous wireless connectivity. Historically, WLAN and cellular have been viewed as competing technologies, with separate standards bodies and solutions; however, current thinking is recognizing that with inter-working, the two technologies can complement each other and improve the overall performance of the network.

This webcast describes the technical fundamentals, motivation and test challenges behind the new standardization work in the area of collaboration (i.e., inter-working between LTE and WLAN) and also competition (LAA, LTE-U) in the unlicensed bands.

Who should view:
Project managers, developers and engineers designing chipsets, developing modems, or building wireless devices, as well as anyone interested in learning the technical fundamentals and test challenges behind the new standardization work around LTE in the unlicensed spectrum.
