From LTE to LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G

From LTE to LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G

Copyright: 2017
Pages: 372
ISBN: 9781630814557

eBook £90.00

This practical hands-on new resource presents LTE technologies from end-to-end, including network planning and the optimization tradeoff process. This book examines the features of LTE-Advanced and LTE-Advanced Pro and how they integrate into existing LTE networks. Professionals find in-depth coverage of how the air interface is structured at the physical layer and how the related link level protocols are designed and work. This resource highlights potential 5G solutions as considered in releases 14 and beyond, the migration paths, and the challenges involved with the latest updates and standardization process.


Moreover, the book covers performance analysis and results, as well as SON specifications and realization. Readers learn about OFDMA, and how DFT is used to implement it. Link budgeting, parameter estimations, and network planning and sizing is explained. Insight into core network architecture is provided, including the protocols and signaling used for both data and voice services. The book also presents a detailed chapter on the end-to-end data transfer optimization mechanisms based on the TCP protocol. This book provides the tools needed for network planning and optimization while addressing the challenges of LTE and LTE-advanced networks.

The Underlying DFT Concepts and Formulations; The Air Interface Architecture and Operation; The Coverage-Capacity Planning and Analysis; Pre-Launch Parameter Planning and Resource Allocation; Radio Resource Control and Mobility Management; Inter-Cell Interference Management in LTE; SON Technologies in LTC-LTE; EPC Network Architecture, Planning and Dimensioning Guideline; LTE_Advanced Main Enhancements; Optimization for TCP Operation in 4G and Other Networks; Voice over LTE (VOLTE); LTE-Advanced Pro-Enhanced LTE Features; Towards 5G.

Review by: Werner Noz, Trend Communications International - August 1, 2017

A well written book providing network design practitioners a comprehensive summary with practical details of the standards and technologies behind 4G LTE, LTE-Advanced (-Pro) and 5G. This network design handbook is a must have for Policy Makers, CTO’s, radio- and core network engineers of cellular telecom operators to implement optimal current and future LTE networks.

Review by: Robert Ivers, TfL London - August 1, 2017

Clear concise description of components and features which form the LTE solution, and how these entities will evolve as we move from LTE towards 5G.
