Air Interface Technologies and Performance
Understand the new technologies of the LTE standard and their impact on system performance improvements with this practical guide.
Do you need to get up to speed quickly on LTE? Understand the new technologies of the LTE standard and how they contribute to improvements in system performance with this practical and valuable guide, written by an expert on LTE who was intimately involved in drafting the standard. In addition to a strong grounding in the technical details, you'll also get fascinating insights into why particular technologies were chosen in the development process. Core topics covered include low-PAPR orthogonal uplink multiple access based on SC-FDMA, MIMO multi-antenna technologies, and inter-cell interference mitigation techniques. Low-latency channel structure and single-frequency network (SFN) broadcast are also discussed in detail. With extensive references, a useful discussion of technologies that were not included in the standard, and end-of-chapter summaries that emphasize all the key points, this book is an essential resource for practitioners in the mobile cellular communications industry and for graduate students studying advanced wireless communications.
