LTE Release 9 adds several new features to LTE,
such as evolved MBMS (eMBMS), dual-layer beamforming (transmission mode 8) and
positioning support. To support network-based positioning estimation, new
reference signals known as positioning reference signals (PRS) have been
introduced. This webinar covers the technological background of the different
positioning methods supported in LTE in addition to Assisted GPS (A-GPS). This
includes observed time difference of arrival (OTDOA) based methods such as PRS
as well as enhanced cell ID based positioning. The webinar offers insights on
new test requirements for LTE-capable terminals and presents related test
solutions developed by Rohde & Schwarz.

Attendees will learn:

  • Positioning methods supported in LTE in addition to (A-)GPS/GNSS
  • Terminal test requirements for LTE positioning
  • Rohde & Schwarz test solutions for LTE positioning

should attend:

  • Engineering and lab managers
  • Research and principal engineers
  • RF and transceiver design engineers
  • Software and protocol development engineers
  • Network and systems & test engineers
  • Application and support engineers


  • Basic understanding of mobile communications standards
  • Basic knowledge of LTE 3GPP Release 8
