"Where this book is exceptional is that the reader will not just learn how LTE works but why it works."
—Adrian Scrase, ETSI Vice-President, International Partnership Projects
LTE - The UMTS Long Term Evolution: From Theory to Practice provides the reader with a comprehensive system-level understanding of LTE, built on explanations of the theories which underlie it. The book is the product of a collaborative effort of key experts representing a wide range of companies actively participating in the development of LTE, as well as academia. This gives the book a broad, balanced and reliable perspective on this important technology. Lucid yet thorough, the book devotes particular effort to explaining the theoretical concepts in an accessible way, while retaining scientific rigour. It highlights practical implications and draws comparisons with the well-known WCDMA/HSPA standards. The authors not only pay special attention to the physical layer, giving insight into the fundamental concepts of OFDMA, SC-FDMA and MIMO, but also cover the higher protocol layers and system architecture to enable the reader to gain an overall understanding of the system.
This book is an invaluable reference for all research and development engineers involved in LTE implementation, as well as graduate and PhD students in wireless communications. Network operators, service providers and R&D managers will also find this book insightful.
