An Introduction to LTE: LTE, LTE-Advanced, SAE and 4G Mobile by Christopher Cox

By Christopher Cox

An creation to LTE explains the know-how utilized by 3GPP long-term Evolution. The e-book covers the entire of LTE, either the innovations used for radio verbal exchange among the bottom station and the cell phone, and the strategies used for signalling conversation and knowledge shipping within the advanced packet middle. It avoids pointless element, focussing as an alternative on conveying a legitimate figuring out of the whole procedure.

The ebook is geared toward cellular telecommunication pros, who are looking to comprehend what LTE is and the way it really works. it truly is beneficial for engineers who're engaged on LTE, particularly those people who are shifting from different applied sciences akin to UMTS and cdma2000, those people who are specialists in a single a part of LTE yet who are looking to comprehend the procedure as an entire, and those that are new to cellular telecommunications altogether. it's also suitable to these operating in non technical roles, reminiscent of undertaking managers, advertising and marketing executives and highbrow estate experts. On finishing the ebook, the reader may have a transparent figuring out of LTE, and may have the ability to take on the extra specialized books and the 3GPP requisites with self assurance.

Key good points -

  • Covers the most recent advancements in unlock 10 of the 3GPP requirements, together with the hot functions of LTE-Advanced
  • Includes references to person sections of the 3GPP requisites, to aid readers comprehend the rules of every subject sooner than going to the requisites for extra unique details
  • Requires no earlier wisdom of cellular telecommunications, or of the mathematical options that LTE makes use of for radio transmission and reception

Software Defined Radio for 3G

In case you are a cellular communications engineer contemplating software program radio suggestions, this sensible source is key interpreting. It covers platforms layout and partitioning the entire approach from the antenna to the administration and keep watch over software program. quite a few thoughts for are supplied together with a glance at present and state-of-the-art silicon applied sciences equivalent to A/D & D/As, DSPs, FPGAs, RCPs, ACMs & electronic frequency up/down-converters.

Ultra-Wideband Communications Systems: Multiband OFDM Approach

The single e-book that gives complete insurance of UWB multiband OFDM know-how Ultra-wideband (UWB) has emerged as a know-how that gives nice promise to meet the becoming call for for inexpensive, high-speed electronic networks. the large bandwidth on hand, the opportunity of excessive info premiums, and the promise for small measurement and coffee processing energy with decreased implementation expense all current a special chance for UWB to develop into a greatly followed radio answer for destiny instant domestic networking know-how.

LTE, LTE-Advanced and WiMAX: Towards IMT-Advanced Networks

WiMAX. There exists a powerful call for for absolutely extending rising net providers, together with collaborative functions and social networking, to the cellular and instant area. supplying such providers could be attainable purely via figuring out broadband within the instant. candidate applied sciences are at present competing in pleasant the necessities for instant broadband networks, WiMAX and LTE.

Wireless Transceiver Architecture: Bridging RF and Digital Communications

Many books exist which be aware of the actual implementation of the RF/analogue a part of transceivers, similar to the CMOS layout, or at the electronic sign processing required within the electronic communique zone. in spite of the fact that, there's little fabric devoted to the transceiver structure and method layout itself.

Example text

We have already seen one component, the home subscriber server (HSS), which is a central database that contains information about all the network operator’s subscribers. This is one of the few components of LTE that has been carried forward from UMTS and GSM. The packet data network (PDN) gateway (P-GW) is the EPC’s point of contact with the outside world. Through the SGi interface, each PDN gateway exchanges data with one or more external devices or packet data networks, such as the network operator’s servers, the internet or the IP multimedia subsystem.

They did not define the words ‘substantially better’, but that is not an issue for this book: we just need to know that LTE is a 4G mobile communication system. 6 The 3GPP Specifications for LTE The specifications for LTE are produced by the Third Generation Partnership Project, in the same way as the specifications for UMTS and GSM. They are organized into releases [16], each of which contains a stable and clearly defined set of features. The use of releases allows equipment manufacturers to build devices using some or all of the features of earlier releases, while 3GPP continues to add new features to the system in a later release.

The most popular 2G system was the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), which was originally designed as a pan-European technology, but which Introduction 7 later became popular throughout the world. Also notable was IS-95 , otherwise known as cdmaOne, which was designed by Qualcomm, and which became the dominant 2G system in the USA. The success of 2G communication systems came at the same time as the early growth of the internet. It was natural for network operators to bring the two concepts together, by allowing users to download data onto mobile devices.
