You mean to say simultaneously here: at a time how many data bearers can be possible. Please comment if it would not.

Data bearers means EPS bearers. We can have maximum 8 data bearers at a time because of logical channel id constraint. I know it is bit weird because in UMTS it was 11, we could have 11 PDP contexts.

But this is what in RRC_Configuration_Message we have one Logical Channel Id field which has maximum 8 integer values only. So we can not map more that 8 data bearers at a time.

In specification no. TS 36.508 Table 4.5.3.3-1 written that number of Data Bearers to be added (N) is 0<=N<=7

I hope it helps you.

I want to confirm on number of cells that can be created through a femto eNodeB. I guess, it is only one cell per femto, but it would be better to get the correct answer from others.
