COAI wants Department of Telecom to check handset quality over call drops

The cellular operators' body COAI wants the government to chalk out a mechanism to control the quality of mobile handsets in India

The cellular operators’ body COAI wants the government to chalk out a mechanism to control the quality of mobile handsets in India, saying role of devices in service quality and call drops has not been considered “adequately”. Seeking an “urgent policy intervention”, COAI has argued that the onus of call drops and service quality has been attributed squarely to operators, but “the role of devices in issue of service quality and call drops has not been considered adequately”. COAI claimed that there has been a “massive influx of untested and uncertified smartphones (more than 10,000 models in India) due to design variations introduced by the device manufacturers”. Drawing the government’s attention to the absence of regulations governing the handset quality, the industry body rued that there was no visibility or control over the large number of “rogue …

India's IT, telecom and BFSI sectors stare at 1 million jobs cuts over 12-18 months

Ever since the demonetisation of high-value currencies were undertaken in early November last year, the media was abuzz with reports of scores of jobs being lost, mainly in the country's hinterlands where the unorganised sector thrives.

SoftBank and Ericsson to Conduct 5G Trials at 28 GHz

Ericsson and SoftBank, are moving to the next step of a 5G trial that started in August 2016. The comprehensive 5G trial included base stations and user equipment with control signal feedback using a mid-band spectrum at 4.5 GHz. This is now one of the future candidate bands for 5G services in Japan. After the successful completion of 5G trials in the 4.5 GHz and 15 GHz bands in Tokyo, the two companies are now proceeding with more advanced tests. The next 5G trial will be conducted both in indoor and outdoor environments, for both device mobility and stationary tests. The trial will utilize Ericsson's mmWave 28 GHz 5G Test Bed solution, which includes base stations and device prototypes and will showcase advanced 5G technologies including Massive-MIMO, Massive Beamforming, Distributed MIMO, Multi-user MIMO and Beam Tracking together with multi-gigabit data rates and ultra-low latency which are becoming key requirements for future consumer mobile broadband and industrial use-case…

LTE RACH Procedure with Call Flow

LTE RACH Procedure with Call Flow

The Base station continuously broadcast MIB's and SIB's. When the UE powers on, it syncs up with the network and it looks for these messages.
Here on, the explanation is provided for the initial connectivity of the UE. i.e. when the UE is powered on:
1. First, the UE has to synchronize with the network at the frame and slot level.·The Primary Synchronization Signal is responsible for slot synchronization.·The Synchronization Signal are sent only on time slots(1st and 11th) of each frame.·PSS is send at the last OFDM symbol of the 1st and 11th slot of each frame.Query_1: How does UE know to look for the PSS synchronization signal?Well, UE doesn't need to worry much for this. As, the synchronization signal are always sent only on the center 62 sub carriers irrespective of the  channel bandwidth (1.25,3,5,10,20). Therefore, UE will look for the central sub carriers, i.e at the last OFDM symbol of the 1st time slot and again at the last OFDM sym…
