Written by experts actively involved in the 3GPP standards and product development, LTE for UMTS, Second Edition gives a complete and up-to-date overview of Long Term Evolution (LTE) in a systematic and clear manner. Building upon on the success of the first edition, LTE for UMTS, Second Edition has been revised to now contain improved coverage of the Release 8 LTE details, including field performance results, transport network, self optimized networks and also covering the enhancements done in 3GPP Release 9. This new edition also provides an outlook to Release 10, including the overview of Release 10 LTE-Advanced technology components which enable reaching data rates beyond 1 Gbps.Key updates for the second edition of LTE for UMTS are focused on the new topics from Release 9 & 10, and include:LTE-Advanced;Self optimized networks (SON);Transport network dimensioning;Measurement results.
This book addresses R&D and standardization activities on LTE small cells and network optimization, focusing on 3GPP evolution to Release 13. In addition, the book is written by experts from Renesas, T-Mobile, Teliasonera and Videotron. The book covers: 1) LTE small cells from specification to products and field results, 2) Latest 3GPP evolution to Release 13 and 3) LTE optimization and learnings from the field.
Describes the technological solutions and standards which will enable the migration of voice and SMS services over to LTE/EPC networksMain drivers for the introduction of Long Term Evolution of UTRAN (LTE) is to provide far better end user experience for mobile broadband services. However, service providers also need to have a clear strategy of how to offer voice and messaging services for consumers and enterprises. The voice service over LTE is becoming increasingly important when the smartphone penetration is increasing rapidly. Smartphones require both good quality voice and high speed broadband data.This book provides the exhaustive view to industry-approved technologies and standards behind the Voice over LTE (VoLTE). Whether a decision maker or technology analyst, this book explains a topic of substantial global market interest. It provides a good introduction to the technology and is useful for operators who may be deploying VoLTE, product managers responsible for VoLTE products and those who work in implementation and standardization of related technologies.Provides a comprehensive overview of industry-approved technologies and standards, providing vital information for decision makers and those working on the technologyWritten by authors working at the cutting edge of mobile communications technology today, bringing a mix of standards and product background, guaranteeing in-depth practical and standards informationCovering the technical and practical elements of VoLTE, explaining the various approaches for providing voice services over LTE
Now in its fifth edition, the bestselling book on UMTS has been updated to cover 3GPP WCDMA and High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) from Release 99 to Release 9. Written by leading experts in the field, the book explains HSPA performance based on simulations and field experience, and illustrates the benefits of HSPA evolution (HSPA+) both from the operators and from the end user?s perspective. It continues to provide updated descriptions of the 3GPP standard including the physical layer, radio protocols on layers 1-3 and a system architecture description. The challenges and solutions regarding terminal RF design are also discussed, including the benefits of HSPA+ power saving features. There is also the addition of a new chapter on femto cells as part of the updates to this fifth edition.Key updates include:HSPA evolution (HSPA+); Multicarrier HSPA solutions; HSPA femto cells (home base stations); TD-SCDMA system description; Terminal power consumption optimization. Updated description of LTE
