Webinar on Long Term Evaluation-A Technical Overview was organized by the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering and Research and Development Cell, PET Engineering College, Vallioor on 24th September, 2016.Webinar was presented by the Resource Person Mr. B. Abilash, Technical Head, Alcatel Lucent India Ltd, Bangalore.

Dr. P. Kannan, Professor & HOD of ECE delivered the welcome address and introduced the chief guest. Mr.B.Abilash addressed the participants and shared the basic concepts about wireless data communication technology and a development of the GSM/UMTS standards.

He discussed about LTE Architecture, LTE Technologies, MME concepts with suitable examples. Also he explained the goal of LTE which is used to increase the capacity and speed of wireless data networks using new DSP (digital signal processing) techniques and modulations that were developed around the turn of the millennium.

A further goal was the redesign and simplification of the network architecture to an IP-based system with significantly reduced transfer latency compared to the 3G architecture. The LTE wireless interface is incompatible with 2G and 3G networks, so that it must be operated on a separate radio spectrum.

After his session Dr. P. Kannan, Professor & HOD of ECE explained basics of Digital Electronics and communication concepts. The Second year ECE students B.E Electronics and Communication Engineering participated in this workshop. At the end of the session students gave their feedback about the workshop.

The programme concluded with vote of thanks by Mrs.S.I.Padma, Assistant Professor of ECE Department.
