Abstract: LTE, commonly known as 4G, stands for Long-TermLTE, commonly known as 4G, stands for Long-TermEvolution and is a wireless communication technologystandardized by 3GPP. LTE adoption has increaseddrastically over the last years, and today is integratedwidely in a vast number of wireless devices. However,significant restrictions, such as the increased equipmentcost and the acquisition of licensed spectrum, rendersexperimentation with real LTE equipment very difficult.Recently, iMinds w-iLab.t testbed has been extended withcommercial LTE equipment and an EPC (Evolved PacketCore) software platform, offering the opportunity toorchestrate and execute real LTE experiments, herebyproviding full access to the most relevant configurable LTEparameters of the network. In this paper, we describe anLTE demonstration scenario that showcases various usecases and the respective experimental settings that can beconducted on the LTE testbed.
