Chapter 11

Summary

In this chapter we summarize the topics discussed in the book and provide a framework for future work. We have subdivided the summary into four sections. First, we review our learning objectives regarding the modeling of the LTE (Long Term Evolution) transceiver system. Then we summarize our findings regarding simulation of the system model and how to accelerate it. Third, we relate what we have learned about bridging the gap between modeling and implementation and how to prototype the simulation model as C/C++ software. Finally, we review some of the topics related to the LTE PHY (Physical Layer) that we have not had the chance to study in detail. Considering the level of detail needed to do justice to these topics, we have decided that they cannot be adequately covered in this volume and have left them as subjects of a future work.

11.1 Modeling

As the first learning objective of this book, we provided an overview of the mathematical modeling of the LTE PHY. Our aim was to provide a balanced approach to the discussion in order to foster a deeper understanding. As such, we decided to incorporate three distinct yet complementary conceptual elements: (i) providing an introductory theoretical overview of LTE-enabling technologies such as Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) multicarrier transmission and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) multi-antenna schemes; (ii) providing an introductory technical overview of LTE specifications, focusing on a ...
