Polarization Diversity:
Two antennas with different polarization
planes
Optimum Ratio : combining method
for de-correlated received signals to
benefit from the diversity gains
Adapts the antenna pattern
to maximize the C/I
Space Diversity
Two antennas separated vertically or
horizontally
Least Square : beam forming
algorithm to reject a strong interferer
Computes complex weight for each antenna

IP transformation in BSS : Key take-aways
IP transformation in Alcatel-Lucent BSS IS NOW A REALITY
IP transport is a High added value feature for GSM networks
IP in BSS as major contributor to operator TCO reduction
Key added value of IP features is Transmission OPEX reduction
Native IP is the cost effective solution to address Full IP transformation
A-Flex / A sig o IP / Gb-Flex allow to follow Core Network transformations
A (UP) over IP is a key step enabling evolution to a flat architecture
IP transformation in GSM network (BSS+NSS) as a mandatory step
IP BSS is a first mandatory step towards GERAN evolutions
IP allows for multi-standard convergence
IP allows to go towards flat architectures (LTE)
Strong IP transformation plan in Alcatel-Lucent BSS
Progressive introduction of IP, from B9 to B10 , B11 and further
Complementarity and compatibility of all features

GERAN EVOLUTIONS / building blocks
EGPRS2
Red HOT (now called EGPRS2 Downlink) stands for Reduced Symbol
Duration and Higher Order modulation and Turbo coding
HUGE (now called EGPRS2 Uplink) stands for Higher Uplink Performance
for GERAN Evolution
HUGE is Similar to Red Hot for the uplink
Under 3GPP
Standardisation
Downlink Dual carrier :
Two downlink carriers per MS => Allows to double the downlink throughput
Latency reduction
for conversational applications (VoIP) and gaming
MS Receive Diversity MSRD
Two antennas per MS => improves downlink throughput in bad radio
conditions

GERAN EVOLUTIONS / EGPRS2 (Red HOT & HUGE )
New Modulations
QPSK
16 QAM
32 QAM
Higher Symbol Rate
325 ksamples/s
Turbo Codes
Better performances in bad radio conditions
Up to ~80 kb/s per radio timeslot
Up to ~100 kb/s per radio timeslot
Better protection, increases mean bit rate
x 1,2 peak rate
Standards not completely finalized yet
High gain on throughput
High impact on the physical layer of handsets
