Abstract

Novel mobile cellular access network technologies like Long Term Evolution (LTE) promise capacities exceeding the ones of existing 3G networks by at least one order of magnitude. This evolution will enable the deployment of services which, due to their capacity requirements, are currently restricted to fixed access networks. On the other hand, packet-switched-only architectures raise the need for a reliable and accurate management of these high access capacities, particularly service-specific Quality of Service (QoS) enforcement, in order to prioritize real-time (voice) services and safeguard a satisfactory Quality of Experience (QoE) to the user.
