Building LTE Systems With HetNets

July 24, 2013
HetNet technology may provide practical solutions for the efficient operation of many different wireless technologies.

Growing demands for more wireless capacity is helping speed the development of LTE and LTE-Advanced networks. These are being described as heterogeneous networks (HetNets) in which many different radio access technologies, such as (HSPA) and (UMTS), must be seamlessly connected. The goal of designing such HetNets is that the performance and the user experience should also be very much the same whatever the location and whatever the application.

Of course, different types of users will desire different results from the wireless network. In addition, network operators must juggle various newer and legacy systems and technologies to provide reliable service. Fortunately, a free tutorial lesson explaining how HetNets will help solve future wireless communications requirements is available.
