Abstract - We propose the acquisition of an E6621A PXT 4G/LTEWireless Communications Test Set from Agilent Technologies in this proposal. The fourth generation (4G) of mobile communications provide broadband Internet access to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The low-delay, high-bandwidth, and ubiquitous Internet access enables a new spectrum of mobile applications and services such as mobile cloud computing, high-definition mobile TV, 3D gaming, 3D navigation, mobile virtual reality, IP telephony, and video conferencing. With the growing national coverage of 4G/LTE networks and increasing popularity of 4G-capable devices, 4G communications are predicted to account for 45 percent of mobile data traffic in 2017 by Cisco. However Cleveland State University (CSU) currently has no capability to conduct researches on 4G communications. The addition of the proposed instrument will enable us to conduct cutting-edge researches, attract local collaborators and strengthen existing collaboration, and train both graduate and undergraduate students on the 4G communication technology, the applications and services enabled by the 4G communications, and security and privacy protection for 4G communications.
The acquisition of the proposed instrument will support cutting-edge and innovative research that impacts a wide range of scientific and engineering fields, including: digital communications, networking, distributed computing, mobile computing, network security and privacy, information systems, and physics.
The acquisition will enable studies on:
