Do you need to get up to speed quickly on LTE?

Understand the new technologies of the LTE standard and how they contribute to improvements in system performance with this practical and valuable guide, written by an expert on LTE who was intimately involved in drafting the standard. In addition to a strong grounding in the technical details, you'll also get fascinating insights into why particular technologies were chosen in the development process.

Core topics covered include:

•Network architecture and protocols
•OFDMA downlink access
•Low-PAPR SC-FDMA uplink access
•Transmit diversity and MIMO spatial multiplexing
•Channel structure and bandwidths
•Cell search, reference signals and random access
•Turbo coding with contention-free interleaver
•Scheduling, link adaptation, hybrid ARQ and power control
•Uplink and downlink physical control signaling
•Inter-cell interference mitigation techniques
•Single-frequency network (SFN) broadcast
•MIMO spatial channel model
•Evaluation methodology and system performance

With extensive references, a useful discussion of technologies that were not included in the standard, and end-of-chapter summaries that emphasize all the key points, this book is an essential resource for practitioners in the mobile cellular communications industry and for graduate students studying advanced wireless communications.

Editorial Reviews

"This text is an especially helpful as an accompaniment to the 3GPP specifications themselves, which offer no explanations as to why one thing or another is included, no hint as to why one protocol technique was chosen over another, or why certain contributions appear only to disappear in later releases. Khan's text offers a welcome set of explanations for pretty much all the mysteries in the specifications; the book gave me a sense of having sat through the LTE formulation process itself. Farooq Khan gives us a rigorous exploration of the contributing technologies and practices with all the whys and wherefores disclosed. The book is, in my view, a critical accompaniment to the LTE specifications for readers who prefer to understand what they are reading and would like to be able to interpret and actually use the LTE specifications."
