The upcoming 5G specifications from 3GPP, to be available in 2018, will include LTE-Advanced Pro as well as a new 5G radio-access technology. This practical and very successful book, written by engineers working closely with 3GPP, gives insight into the newest technologies and standards adopted by 3GPP, with detailed explanations of the specific solutions chosen and their implementation in LTE, LTE-Advanced, and LTE-Advanced Pro, as well as providing a detailed description of the path to 5G and the associated underlying technologies. This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the large extensions to LTE as introduced in 3GPP Releases 12 and 13 and the role of LTE in the upcoming 5G era. New to this edition includes updated content on: 4G and 5G Radio Access Spectrum for 4G and 5G Machine-Type Communication Device-to-Device Communication License-assisted Access Full-dimension MIMO Small-cell enhancements, eIMTA, FDD+TDD aggregation, dual connectivity Requirements on and general structure of 5G wireless access, addressing the existing and new usage scenarios for 5G Technical solutions for the new 5G radio-access technology The authors of this book all work at Ericsson Research and have been deeply involved in 3G and 4G development and standardization. They are leading experts in the field and are today actively contributing to the standardization of 4G and 5G within 3GPP. The leading book on 3GPP specifications for LTE, LTE-Advanced, and LTE-Advanced Pro covering up to and including Release 13, written by Ericsson engineers who are heavily involved in the development of 3GPP specifications Ten new chapters and coverage of all major features introduced with Release 12 and 13 Two completely new chapters on 5G wireless access including a detailed description of the key technology components under development by 3GPP

A comparative introduction to major global wireless standards, technologies and their applications From GSM to LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G: An Introduction to Mobile Networks and Mobile Broadband, 3rd Edition provides technical descriptions of the various wireless technologies currently in use. It explains the rationales behind their differing mechanisms and implementations while exploring the advantages and limitations of each technology. This edition has been fully updated and substantially expanded to reflect the significant evolution in mobile network technology occurring over the past several years. The chapter on LTE has been extensively enhanced with new coverage of current implementations of LTE carrier aggregation, mobility management, cell reselection and handover procedures, as well as the latest developments in 5G radio and core networks in 3GPP. It now features additional information on the TD-LTE air interface, IPv6 in mobile networks, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IOT). Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) is now treated extensively in a separate chapter featuring coverage of the VoLTE call establishment process, dedicated bearer setup, header compression, speech codec and bandwidth negotiation, supplementary service configuration and VoLTE emergency calls. In addition, extensive coverage of Voice-over-Wifi and mission critical communication for public safety organizations over LTE has been added. The WLAN chapter now provides coverage of WPA2-Professional with certificates for authentication in large deployments, such as the global Eduroam network and the new WLAN 60 GHz air interface. Bluetooth evolution has been addressed by including a detailed description of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) in the chapter devoted to Bluetooth. Describes the different systems based on the standards, their practical implementation and design assumptions, and the performance and capacity of each system in practice is analyzed and explained Questions at the end of each chapter and answers on the accompanying website make this book ideal for self-study or as course material.

Fifth-generation cellular radio access networks are currently being standardized as 5G New Radio (NR). The primary objectives of 5G NR are to provide enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) capabilities. This innovative resource analyzes these applications in detail to help readers understand how the flexible design of NR makes it suitable for a wide range of use cases and applications. The rationale behind the design decisions made during the NR standardization process are explored. Readers will be able to understand the performance limits of NR when applied to non-eMBB scenarios and how NR compares to 4G and IEEE 802.x connectivity solutions for such scenarios. The main features of 5G phase 2 are explored, as well as the use cases that can be addressed by 5G phase 2. The mathematical models are included to help explain the future evolution of NR in Release 16 and beyond. This is the only book that describes both the standards features of NR and the mathematical models/open research issues for 5G, appealing to both industry practitioners and academic researchers.
