The Mobile
Broadband Standard










LTE-Advanced Pro


Joern Krause
After finalizing my Dr./PhD in the area of RF Engineering, Antenna Design and Electromagnectic Compatibility, I joined the Siemens AG in Germany in

1997 starting with standardization of GSM data services in ETSI SMG4.

With the growing effort of standardizing 3rd generation mobile commmunication systems I joined the UMTS standardization community in July 1998, at first ETSI SMG2 L1.

Afterwards, I worked for 3GPP TSG RAN WG1, WG2, WG4 and WG3 respectively

(1-2 years in each group), especially with focus on measurements, Radio Resource Management aspects and Location Services/UE positioning.

In connection with my TSG RAN WG4 activities I was also rapporteur for one of the Harmonised European Standards for IMT-2000 in ETSI MSG/TFES.

From May 2002 until January 2004, I worked for the ETSI Mobile Competence Centre (MCC) in Sophia Antipolis as contracted expert of the Siemens AG in order to support 3GPP TSG RAN WG3.

From February 2004 onwards, I led the RAN WG1 standardisation team and activities of the Siemens AG with interesting topics like e.g. HSDPA enhancements, MBMS, EDCH/HSUPA, CPC (as rapporteur) and UMTS LTE.

In April 2007, the mobile network business of the Siemens AG was transferred into the Nokia Siemens Networks GmbH & Co. KG (NSN) and I supported especially mobility and measurement aspects of UMTS LTE.

Apart from several international publications and patents, I am holding lectures on radio and system aspects of mobile communication systems at the Technical University of Berlin.

In December 2007, I left NSN and from January 2008 onwards I will have the pleasure to support 3GPP TSG RAN WG2 as a technical officer of the ETSI Mobile Competence Centre (MCC).
