In this full project, LTE Rel-9 baseband core technologies for both terminal and femto BTS would be developed. Key areas in LTE TDD/FDD for terminal and femto BTS such as enhanced downlink MIMO (Dual-layer beamforming or 8x2 MIMO), Reliable RSRP measurement that can improve terminal handover performance will be explored. Physical layer reference design that supports LTE Rel-9 TDD/FDD for terminal and femto BTS will be delivered as the achievements of this project. This project will have significant benefits to the local industry. LTE has been widely accepted as next generation worldwide cellular standard. Today LTE trial networks have been deployed worldwide based on LTE Rel-8 specifications. It’s expected that commercial deployment of LTE network will be started from year 2012. It will be based on LTE Rel-9 specifications. It’s expected that by the end of year 2015, there will be more than 300 million LTE users worldwide. Today, ASTRI has become a global leading provider for LTE Rel-8 core technologies for demonstration and trial purposes. This project will deliver world-leading LTE Rel-9 baseband core for both terminal and femto cell. It will keep ASTRI/Hong Kong’s leading position in LTE area and create a competitive edge for local design houses, equipment venders and OEM/ODM manufacturers and help them to have an excellent position in LTE market.
