There are 3 modulation schemes are used in lte .
1. QPK
2. 16 QAM
3. 64 QAM

Based on the Channel Quality Indicaiton reported by UEs to eNB. Enodeb MAC scheduler chooses appropriate modulation scheme to send data. As usual if radio conditions are good scheduler would like to send more data(more bits over the one resource element) so it will use 64 QAM. Similarly for other two. I am just telling about PDSCH which is mainly used for data so modulation schemes varies. But some channels like PDCCH and PBCH are in LTE system which mainly focus on reliable delivery of control data UE/UEs,so QPSK is used to send control information.

For Data Transmission : QPSK, 16QAM, 64QAM for PDSCH, PMCH
For Normal Control Information : QPSK for PDCCH, PCFICH, PBCH

Modulation scheme used in DL are QPSK, 16QAM And 64 QAM. Depending on the radio condition as main criteria it is decided.

Hi all

Downlink TFTs is used just for P-GW to decide which bearer that packet should go.
It is not useful for UE (or i miss something?)

Therefore, why PGW sends Downlink TFTs to UE?



Find the answer. The answer is include in comment.

why QPSK modulation scheme is used for all control channels in LTE ?
