ABSTRACT Comprehensive long term evolution of the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) specifications is currently ongoing to provide significant improvement over the current release. Important goals for the evolved system include significantly improved system capacity and coverage, low latency, reduced operating costs, multi-antenna support, flexible bandwidth operations and seamless integration with existing systems. To ensure low latency, users must be able to establish a connection to the network quickly. This paper provides a preliminary design and procedure for the random access channel used to establish a connection when the mobile is not yet time-synchronized to the network in the uplink.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a comparative analysis of the performance of the non-synchronized initial random access channel in mobile WiMAX and E-UTRA systems under different conditions (fast fading, multiuser interference) is carried out. The analysis is focused on the correlation properties of the code sequences used in each case. We evaluate their ability to provide low values for false alarm and erroneous detection probabilities (detecting a sequence that has not been transmitted) at the same time as guaranteeing low non detection probabilities of the effectively transmitted sequences.

The analysis is focused on the correlation properties of the code sequences used in each case. We evaluate their ability to provide low values for false alarm and erroneous detection probabilities (detecting a sequence that has not been transmitted) at the same time as guaranteeing low nondetection probabilities of the effectively transmitted sequences. Results show the promising performance of the E-UTRA scheme, even in high mobility scenarios, where the Doppler effect requires additional considerations to guarantee the correct system operation.

    ABSTRACT: Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a 4G standard for mobile networks, and has proven to be the only viable solution. In this paper, we have presented a new analytical model that describes the contention-based random access request procedure of LTE networks for dynamic request generation, including clustering and non-clustering schemes. The model takes into account the uniform back-off as well as the waiting period for the resource assignment and possible message delivery failures because of the collisions and resource starvation. The proposed model is empirically verified under simulation environment by measuring the collision probability, throughput and resource utilization. The results demonstrate that, when the network load is high, the clustering scheme performs better than non-clustering scheme.
