4g frequency allocations l.jpg

4G Frequency Allocations

  • LTE and WiMAX use similar modulation schemes and have similar spectral efficiency

  • WiMAX implementation in North America has a significant advantage in total bandwidth available to service a large number of customers


Range loss comparison 700 mhz vs 2600 mhz l.jpg

Range Loss Comparison – 700 MHz vs. 2600 MHz

  • LTE in North America is implemented in the 700 MHz band

  • WiMAX is implemented in the 2600 MHz band

  • LTE has a significant advantage in coverage range and footprint over WiMAX

dBm

750 MHz

2600 MHz


Mimo antenna implementation issues l.jpg

MIMO Antenna Implementation Issues

What works for 3G will not be good enough for 4G

  • MIMO antenna performance is greatly effected by device geometry

  • Handset geometries are small in terms of wavelength in the 700 MHz band making it difficult to implement MIMO antennas

  • Handset geometries are larger in terms of wavelength at 2600 MHz making MIMO antenna implementation more practical

Freespace Wavelength at 750 MHz ~ 400 mm

Maximum Dimension Resonance = 1150 MHz

w=60 mm

L=110 mm

Freespace Wavelength at 2600 MHz ~ 115 mm


Simulation 700 mhz mimo handset antenna implementation l.jpg

Simulation - 700 MHz MIMO Handset Antenna Implementation

Efficiency:

30-40%

VSWR: <2:1

Patterns almost identical

CC: >0.8

Coupling:

-4dB


Simulation 700 mhz mimo handset antenna implementation isolated mode technique l.jpg

Simulation - 700 MHz MIMO Handset Antenna Implementation – Isolated Mode Technique

Efficiency 50-58%

VSWR <2.2:1

CC: <0.35

Isolation:

<-13 dB

Significantly different patterns results in low envelope correlation coefficient


Summary conclusions l.jpg

Summary / Conclusions

  • LTE 700 is capacity limited for a given data rate

  • WiMAX at 2.6 GHz is range limited for a given data rate

  • 700 MHz MIMO handset antenna implementation requires specialized techniques

  • WiMAX and LTE each have benefits and drawbacks

  • WiMAX and LTE will likely coexist each filling particular needs for data rates, coverage and capacity

What works for 3G will not be good enough for 4G
