Heterogeneous networks (HetNets), consisting of Macro NodeBs (macros) and low power Pico NodeBs (picos), can increase system capacity by offloading some users to the picos. However, this offloading may be limited due to intercell interference from macros to picos that reduces their coverage. HSPA Multi-carrier HetNets allow the use of range expansion techniques to achieve more offloading, such as power (more ..)
Huawei and Qualcomm have completed an LTE FDD flash CSFB (Circuit Switched Fallback) voice call to UMTS using R9 protocol and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 processor, the MSM8960, during a series of optimisation tests.
