MSc thesis project - Mobile Broadband performance

MSc thesis project - Mobile Broadband performance-00074838
Ericsson is the largest supplier of mobile networks in the world. These networks are evolving
quickly with a huge demand for new functionality, more Smartphone capacity, and even
higher data rates. The next evolution step in mobile communication beckons – the networked
society where everything that benefits from a connection has a connection, enabling a smarter
society and a more sustainable world. Ericsson is powering the mobile broadband revolution
and Product Development Unit WCDMA and Multi-standard RAN is the provider of
Ericsson's world-leading 3G Radio Access Network.
The Technical Management unit within PDU WCDMA and MS RAN is responsible for
providing leadership in the understanding and development of WCDMA and Multi-standard
mobile network technology. A vital component in this work is quantifying the relationship
between end-user satisfaction, overall network performance, and the use of specific
technology features and settings.
This MSc thesis project involves performing a sensitivity analysis of the key metrics affecting
mobile broadband end-user satisfaction to network configuration, capabilities, and settings.
The work will be performed by means of simulations and possibly lab measurements. The
results will increase our understanding of mobile broadband performance and may be used to
enhance real product solutions.
Do you like to co-operate and communicate in a multicultural environment?
We are looking for a bright MSc student with an interest in mobile broadband technology and
performance. Electrical Engineering, Engineering Physics or Computer Engineering is a
suitable background. Advanced courses in radio communication, wireless networks, control
theory, queuing theory, signal processing, and/or performance estimation are an advantage.
Knowledge of Java (or a similar object-oriented programming language like C++) and Matlab
is required.
In addition you need to have fulfilled course requirements and be self-motivated, flexible and
well organized. Good spoken and written English is essential.
Applications must include a brief personal letter, CV, and recent grades. In your application,
