Advanced Antenna Systems for 5G Network Deployments: Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice provides a comprehensive understanding of the field of advanced antenna systems (AAS) and how they can be deployed in 5G networks. The book gives a thorough understanding of the basic technology components, the state-of-the-art multi-antenna solutions, what support 3GPP has standardized together with the reasoning, AAS performance in real networks, and how AAS can be used to enhance network deployments.
