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.
