Implementing IP and Ethernet on the 4G Mobile Network
Publication Date: April 2017 Hardback 322 pp.
The 4G mobile network allows an IP packet transmitted by a mobile to be transported to its gateway, and reciprocally, using the following networks: MPLS-VPN, VPLS and OTN.
The mechanisms for the implementation of quality of service (QoS) on the EPS, IP, Ethernet and MPLS networks are presented.
The security for the LTE radio interface, the NAS messages and the links of the transport (IPSec) are discussed.
Aspects relating to the synchronization of the eNB entities are also detailed, including SyncE (frequency synchronization) and IEEE 1588 (phase and time synchronization) mechanisms.
