A-Interface Over Internet Protocol For User-Plane Connection Optimization In GSM/EDGE Radio Access Network
Permanent address of the item is
This thesis will cover a detailed study about the main motivations and benefits from using IP as a transport protocol for specifically A-interface in GERAN for Circuit Switched User-Plane (CS-UP) connection, in addition to the required protocols. The main study in this document will be around Real Time Protocol (RTP), Real Time Control Protocol (RTCP) negotiation for RTP packets multiplexing, for both cases, with and without RTP header compression. The focus will be about the communication between the Base Station Controller (BSC) and the Media GateWay (MGW), the bandwidth gain in accordance to the multiplexing delay for processing and buffering, the voice Quality of Service (QoS) and some other parameters.
