4G LTE-Advanced Pro and The Road to 5G by Erik Dahlman, Stefan Parkvall, Johan Skold

By Erik Dahlman, Stefan Parkvall, Johan Skold

The upcoming 5G necessities from 3GPP, to be on hand in 2018, will comprise LTE-Advanced professional in addition to a brand new 5G radio-access know-how. This functional and extremely profitable booklet, written by way of engineers operating heavily with 3GPP, offers perception into the latest applied sciences and criteria followed by means of 3GPP, with precise factors of the categorical recommendations selected and their implementation in LTE, LTE-Advanced, and LTE-Advanced professional, in addition to delivering an in depth description of the trail to 5G and the linked underlying applied sciences.

This version has been completely revised and up to date to mirror the big extensions to LTE as brought in 3GPP Releases 12 and thirteen and the position of LTE within the upcoming 5G period. New to this version comprises up to date content material on:

  • 4G and 5G Radio entry
  • Spectrum for 4G and 5G
  • Machine-Type verbal exchange
  • Device-to-Device communique
  • License-assisted entry
  • Full-dimension MIMO
  • Small-cell improvements, eIMTA, FDD+TDD aggregation, twin connectivity
  • Requirements on and normal constitution of 5G instant entry, addressing the present and new utilization situations for 5G
  • Technical strategies for the hot 5G radio-access technology

The authors of this booklet all paintings at Ericsson learn and feature been deeply all in favour of 3G and 4G improvement and standardization. they're top specialists within the box and are at the present time actively contributing to the standardization of 4G and 5G inside of 3GPP.

  • The prime ebook on 3GPP standards for LTE, LTE-Advanced, and LTE-Advanced professional overlaying as much as and together with unencumber thirteen, written by way of Ericsson engineers who're seriously eager about the advance of 3GPP specifications
  • Ten new chapters and assurance of all significant beneficial properties brought with unencumber 12 and 13
  • Two thoroughly new chapters on 5G instant entry together with an in depth description of the main expertise elements below improvement by way of 3GPP

In such situations, exploiting channel-quality variations also in the frequency domain will help to improve the overall performance of the system. For LTE, scheduling decisions can be taken as often as once every 1 ms, and the granularity in the frequency domain is 180 kHz. This allows for relatively rapid channel variations in both the time and frequency domains to be tracked and utilized by the scheduler. To support downlink scheduling, a device may provide the network with channel-state reports indicating the instantaneous downlink channel quality in both the time and frequency domains.

2 LTE EVOLUTION 39 enhancements for supporting multicast/broadcast services in a single cell in release 13, known as single-cell point to multi-point (SC-PTM). 7 POSITIONING Positioning, as the name implies, refers to functionality in the radio-access network to determine the location of individual devices. Determining the position of a device can, in principle, be done by including a GPS receiver in the device. Although this is a quite common feature, not all devices include the necessary GPS receiver and there may also be cases when the GPS service is not available.

During the testing and verification phase, errors in the specification may still be found and those errors may change decisions in the detailed specification. Albeit not common, changes may also need to be made to the architecture or the requirements. To verify the specification, products are needed. Hence, the implementation of the products starts after (or during) the detailed specification phase. The testing and verification phase ends when there are stable test specifications that can be used to verify that the equipment is fulfilling the technical specification.
