An Introduction to LTE Book Review:

Following on from the successful first edition (March 2012), this book gives a clear explanation of what LTE does and how it works. The content is expressed at a systems level, offering readers the opportunity to grasp the key factors that make LTE the hot topic amongst vendors and operators across the globe. The book assumes no more than a basic knowledge of mobile telecommunication systems, and the reader is not expected to have any previous knowledge of the complex mathematical operations that underpin LTE. This second edition introduces new material for the current state of the industry, such as the new features of LTE in Releases 11 and 12, notably coordinated multipoint transmission and proximity services; the main short- and long-term solutions for LTE voice calls, namely circuit switched fallback and the IP multimedia subsystem; and the evolution and current state of the LTE market. It also extends some of the material from the first edition, such as inter-operation with other technologies such as GSM, UMTS, wireless local area networks and cdma2000; additional features of LTE Advanced, notably heterogeneous networks and traffic offloading; data transport in the evolved packet core; coverage and capacity estimation for LTE; and a more rigorous treatment of modulation, demodulation and OFDMA. The author breaks down the system into logical blocks, by initially introducing the architecture of LTE, explaining the techniques used for radio transmission and reception and the overall operation of the system, and concluding with more specialized topics such as LTE voice calls and the later releases of the specifications. This methodical approach enables readers to move on to tackle the specifications and the more advanced texts with confidence.

Why certain PHY technologies have been adopted for the 5G NR. The fundamental physical limitations imposed by radio wave propagation and hardware impairments. How the fundamental 5G NR physical layer functionalities (e.g., parameters/methods/schemes) should be realized. The content includes: A global view of 5G development – concept, standardization, spectrum allocation, use cases and requirements, trials, and future commercial deployments. The fundamentals behind the 5G NR physical layer specification in 3GPP. Radio wave propagation and channel modeling for 5G and beyond. Modeling of hardware impairments for future base stations and devices. Flexible multi-carrier waveforms, multi-antenna solutions, and channel coding schemes for 5G and beyond. A simulator including hardware impairments, radio propagation, and various waveforms. Ali Zaidi is a strategic product manager at Ericsson, Sweden.

5G NR Book Review:

5G NR: Architecture, Technology, Implementation, and Operation of 3GPP New Radio Standards is an in-depth, systematic, technical reference on 3GPP's New Radio standards (Release 15 and beyond), covering the underlying theory, functional descriptions, practical considerations and implementation of the 5G new radio access technology. The book describes the design and operation of individual components and shows how they are integrated into the overall system and operate from a systems perspective. Uniquely, this book gives detailed information on RAN protocol layers, transport, network architecture and services, as well as practical implementation and deployment issues, making it suitable for researchers and engineers who are designing and developing 5G systems. Reflecting on the author's 30 plus years of experience in signal processing, microelectronics and wireless communication system design, this book is ideal for professional engineers, researchers and graduate students working and researching in cellular communication systems and protocols as well as mobile broadband wireless standards. Strong focus on practical considerations, implementation and deployment issues Takes a top-down approach to explain system operation and functional interconnection Covers all functional components, features, and interfaces based on clear protocol structure and block diagrams Describes RF and transceiver design considerations in sub-6 GHz and mmWave bands Covers network slicing, SDN/NFV/MEC networks and cloud and virtualized RAN architectures Comprehensive coverage of NR multi-antenna techniques and beamformed operation A consistent and integrated coverage reflecting the author’s decades of experience in developing 3G, 4G and 5G technologies and writing two successful books in these areas
