DUBLIN, Jan. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Signals Ahead: High Power User Equipment (HPUE) Benchmark Study" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Research and Markets Logo

SRG conducted a benchmark study of HPUE (High Power User Equipment) with a Power Class 2 Power Amplifier (PA), to determine how it performs against an ordinary smartphone with a Power Class 3 PA. A Power Class 2 PA supports a maximum transmit power of 26 dBm (+/- 2 dB) and a Power Class 3 PA supports a maximum transmit power of 23 dBm (+/- 2 dB). We used Sprint's network in rural Minnesota and the Chicago vicinity where Samsung is the infrastructure suppler.

A Must Read

This report is a "must read" for any organization interested in how operators can impact the performance of their LTE-TDD network, not to mention organizations that want to know how advancements in LTE continue despite the ongoing work on the new 5G/NR standard.The Potential Results (read the report to learn what we found). In theory, the benefits of HPUE include the following:

  • Higher uplink data speeds, meaning a better user experience, especially at the edge of cell or in other coverage challenged areas of the network;
  • Higher downlink data rates in situations where the uplink coverage limits the transmission of uplink ACKs and NACKs, thereby indirectly limiting the data speeds in the downlink direction;
  • Increased uplink spectral efficiency by using higher MCS values, especially at the edge of the cell or in other RF-challenging environments; and
  • Increased Band 41 coverage/more time spent on Band 41, which improves an operator's network efficiency and potentially user data rates.
