Wiley, Apr 1, 2009 - Technology & Engineering - 450 pages
From the editors of the highly successful WCDMA for UMTS, this new book gives a complete and up-to-date overview of Long Term Evolution (LTE) in a systematic and clear manner. It starts with an in-depth explanation of the background and standardization process before moving on to examine the system architecture evolution (SAE). The basics of air interface modulation choices are introduced and key subjects such as 3GPP LTE physical layer and protocol solutions are described. Mobility aspects and radio resource management together with radio and end-to-end performance are assessed. The voice solution and voice capacity in LTE are also illustrated. Finally, the main differences between LTE TDD and FDD modes are examined and HSPA evolution in 3GPP Releases 7 and 8 is described.
LTE for UMTS is one of the first books to provide a comprehensive guide to the standards and technologies of LTE. Key features of the book include:
What people are saying - Write a review
Excellent book on LTE. Will be very useful for people researching with MAC, Data Link, TL layers i.e. above Layer I. Layer I also has some sufficient content, but Layer II and above is extremely good. These authors have also authored several papers offlate in conferences like IEEE VTC, journals like Transactions that have added more weightage to the book. Definitely a strong recommendation for those who would be interested to research on scheduling, spectrum-awareness, QoS, UL/DL scheduling strategies, optimization, proportionality fairness, FDPS, TDPS etc. Really a good book. I rate 4/5, I don't give the full score because the book is a little costly. But it surely is worth the cost
