At the beginning of the XXI. century the mobile communication has transformed significantly. The dramatically increasing user needs forced new, redesigned solutions in the telecomunications sector. The fourth-generation mobile network brings ideal solution for the customers and suppliers as well, ensuring the long-term success of the sector.
In my thesis I am aiming to give an overview of the next generation mobile network technology, present the theoretical background and the operation of OFDM-based wireless access used in LTE technology. The second half of the theoretical section is addressing the basics of radio access, with special attention to the allocation and management of resources. On the basis of my desk research the following section of my thesis goes deeper in the background of cellular systems, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of using femtocells as well.
According to the goals of my thesis, after the theoretical summary I am introducing the steps of creating an OFDM-based resource planning application. My aim is to discuss the designing and implementation of access medium used in the modelling and planning of user profiles. In the last step of the designing phase I am presenting the decision-making mechanisms being used to ensure adequate service quality.
As a final step a simulation of users’ behaviour and examination of resource management methods in a femtocell will be accomplished.
