By Latha P V and Durgaprasad Palepu


Device to Device communications (D2D) promises to be new key feature of the next generation mobile networks in the path towards providing the proximity based services. D2D-based services represent a new market opportunity that would manage to smoothly integrate new technologies as a complement to cellular technologies. This paper discusses about the Direct Discovery procedure in LTE for Proximity based services. This paper provides in detail how LTE enabled UEs use the side link transmission for Proximity based Direct Discovery. Click here to read the full paper
