Fourth-Generation Wireless Networks: Applications and Innovations: Applications and Innovations
IGI Global, Dec 31, 2009 - Business & Economics - 836 pages
Fourth generation wireless networks are expected to provide comprehensive and secure IP-based solutions, facilitating existing and emerging services such as voice, data, streamed multimedia, sensory, e-health, and social networking. It is expected that 4G will be provided to users on an "Anytime, Anywhere" basis and at much higher data rates compared to the current and previous mobile generations.
Fourth-Generation Wireless Networks: Applications and Innovations presents a vision for the coming years in terms of emerging fourth generation (4G) wireless technology trends and best practices. It explores the resulting challenges and technical opportunities that will arise in creating and delivering 4G networks for the emerging applications and services. This book also examines the fundamentals of advanced physical layer and radio resource management as the basis for cross layer and cross network optimization that will emerge for increased mobility and services in video, cloud computing virtualization, entertainment, education, health, and security.
This book have been organized especially for researchers, students, network engineers and designers and leaders of emerging companies, decision makers in standards, consumers, and product developers.
