Research and Markets: Signals Ahead: Chips and Salsa XVIII - The Cat 4 is out of the bag

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pbj4m7/signals_ahead) has announced the addition of the "Signals Ahead: Chips and Salsa XVIII - The Cat 4 is out of the bag" report to their offering.

This tenth benchmark study done with Spirent Communications provides results from LTE FDD Category 4 chipset testing. Participating chipset manufacturers include Ericsson, HiSilicon Intel, MediaTek, Qualcomm and Samsung.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Six LTE chipsets from Ericsson (pre-commercial), HiSilicon (commercial), Intel (commercial), MediaTek (pre-commercial), Qualcomm (commercial) and Samsung (pre-commercial) have been benchmarked
  • Each chipset has been tested against 29 test scenarios involving five ITU channel models, two transmission modes, and three MIMO correlation factors
  • Results are based primarily on achievable throughput, although we also analyzed the distributions of reported CQI values, ACK/NACK/DTX percentages for both codewords and MIMO utilization rates
  • The Samsung pre-commercial chipset was the top-performing chipset and it distinguished itself from its peers, in particular with some of the more challenging test scenarios.

Key Topics Covered:

1.0 Executive Summary

2.0 Introduction

3.0 The Results - Sliced and diced several different ways

4.0 Results and Analysis by Test Grouping

4.1 Static Channel Conditions

4.2 High SINR with Varying MIMO Correlation Factors

4.3 Extended Pedestrian A (EPA5)

4.4 Extended Vehicular A (EVA5)

4.5 Extended Typical Urban (ETU70)

4.6 Extended Typical Urban (ETU300)

5.0 Deep Dive Analysis

5.1 Test Scenario 5 (EPA5 Fading, SINR = 30 dB, MIMO Correlation = High)

5.2 Test Scenario 11 (EPA5 Fading, SINR = 15 dB, MIMO Correlation = Low)

5.3 Test Scenario 23 (ETU70 Fading, SINR = 5 dB, MIMO Correlation = Low)

6.0 Test Methodology

7.0 Final Thoughts
