A timely publication providing coverage of radio resourcemanagement, mobility management and standardization inheterogeneous cellular networks
The topic of heterogeneous cellular networks has gained momentumin industry and the research community, attracting the attention ofstandardization bodies such as 3GPP LTE and IEEE 802.16j, whoseobjectives are looking into increasing the capacity and coverage ofthe cellular networks. This book focuses on recentprogresses, covering the related topics including scenariosof heterogeneous network deployment, interference management in theheterogeneous network deployment, carrier aggregation in aheterogeneous network, cognitive radio, cell selection/reselectionand load balancing, mobility and handover management, capacity andcoverage optimization for heterogeneous networks, trafficmanagement and congestion control.
This book enables readers to better understand the technicaldetails and performance gains that are madepossible by this state-of-the-art technology. It contains theinformation necessary for researchers and engineers wishing tobuild and deploy highly efficient wireless networks themselves. Toenhance this practical understanding, the book is structured tosystematically lead the reader through a series of case-studies ofreal world scenarios.
