LTE Radio Layer Design

  • Tara Ali-Yahiya
Chapter

Abstract

The LTE link layer protocols are optimized for low delay and low overhead and are simpler than their counterparts in UTRAN. The state-of-the-art LTE protocol design is the result of a careful cross-layer approach where the protocols interact with each other efficiently. This chapter provides a thorough overview of this protocol stack, including the sublayers and corresponding interactions in between them, referring always to 3GPP specifications.
