"Where this book is exceptional is that the reader will not justlearn how LTE works but why it works"
Adrian Scrase, ETSI Vice-President, International PartnershipProjects

Following on the success of the first edition, this book isfully updated, covering the latest additions to LTE and the keyfeatures of LTE-Advanced.

This book builds on the success of its predecessor, offering thesame comprehensive system-level understanding  built onexplanations of the underlying theory, now expanded to includecomplete coverage of Release 9 and the developing specificationsfor LTE-Advanced. The book is a collaborative effort of more than40 key experts representing over 20 companies activelyparticipating in the development of LTE, as well as academia. Thebook highlights practical implications, illustrates the expectedperformance, and draws comparisons with the well-known WCDMA/HSPAstandards. The authors not only pay special attention to thephysical layer, giving an insight into the fundamental concepts ofOFDMA-FDMA and MIMO, but also cover the higher protocol layers andsystem architecture to enable the reader to gain an overallunderstanding of the system.

Key New Features:

  • Comprehensively updated with the latest changes of the LTERelease 8 specifications, including improved coverage of RadioResource Management RF aspects and performance requirements
  • Provides detailed coverage of the new LTE Release 9 features,including: eMBMS, dual-layer beamforming, user equipmentpositioning, home eNodeBs / femtocells and pico cells andself-optimizing networks
  • Evaluates the LTE system performance
  • Introduces LTE-Advanced, explaining its context and motivation,as well as the key new features including: carrier aggregation,relaying, high-order MIMO, and Cooperative Multi-Point transmission(CoMP).
  • Includes an accompanying website containing a complete list ofacronyms related to LTE and LTE-Advanced, with a brief descriptionof each (ahref=""

This book is an invaluable reference for all research anddevelopment engineers involved in implementation of LTE orLTE-Advanced, as well as graduate and PhD students in wirelesscommunications. Network operators, service providers and R&Dmanagers will also find this book insightful.
