Following on the success of the first edition, this book isfully updated, covering the latest additions to LTE and the keyfeatures of LTE-Advanced.
This book builds on the success of its predecessor, offering thesame comprehensive system-level understanding built onexplanations of the underlying theory, now expanded to includecomplete coverage of Release 9 and the developing specificationsfor LTE-Advanced. The book is a collaborative effort of more than40 key experts representing over 20 companies activelyparticipating in the development of LTE, as well as academia. Thebook highlights practical implications, illustrates the expectedperformance, and draws comparisons with the well-known WCDMA/HSPAstandards. The authors not only pay special attention to thephysical layer, giving an insight into the fundamental concepts ofOFDMA-FDMA and MIMO, but also cover the higher protocol layers andsystem architecture to enable the reader to gain an overallunderstanding of the system.
Key New Features:
This book is an invaluable reference for all research anddevelopment engineers involved in implementation of LTE orLTE-Advanced, as well as graduate and PhD students in wirelesscommunications. Network operators, service providers and R&Dmanagers will also find this book insightful.

Pairing the emotional pursuit of connection with multiple forms of communication, Baker weaves the languages of HTML, mathematics, mu-sical notations, and propositional logic into his storytelling in order to unveil nuances of experiences and emotions. This poignant formal invention articulates loneliness, grief, doubt, and comfort in ways that are inaccessible through traditional language alone.
In both form and content, Baker captures the complexities of breaking and forming connections with other people, and the various lan-guages we use to navigate this inescapable human need—resulting in a moving exploration of interpersonal bonds.

It describes the normal signaling procedures as well asexplaining how to identify and troubleshoot abnormal networkbehavior and common failure causes.Enables the reader to understand the signaling procedures andparameters that need to be analyzed when monitoring UMTSnetworksCovers the essential facts on signaling procedures by providingfirst hand information taken from real LTE/EPC tracesA useful reference on the topic, also providing sufficientdetails for test and measurement experts who need to analyzeLTE/EPC signaling procedures and measurements at the most detailedlevelContains a description of LTE air interface monitoringscenarios as well as other key topics up to an advanced level
LTE Signaling, Troubleshooting and Optimization is theLong Term Evolution successor to the previous Wiley books UMTSSignaling and UMTS Performance Measurement.
WiMAX is the most promising new technology for broadband wireless access to IP services. It can serve an extraordinary range of applications and environments: data, voice, and multimedia; fixed and mobile; licensed and unlicensed. However, until now, wireless professionals have had little reliable information to guide them. Fundamentals of WiMAX is the first comprehensive guide to WiMAX—its technical foundations, features, and performance.
Three leading wireless experts systematically cut through the hype surrounding WiMAX and illuminate the realities. They combine complete information for wireless professionals and basic, accessible knowledge for non-experts. Professionals will especially appreciate their detailed discussion of the performance of WiMAX based on comprehensive link- and system-level simulations.
Whether you're a wireless engineer, network architect, manager, or system designer, this book delivers essential information for succeeding with WiMAX—from planning through deployment.
Topics includeApplications, history, spectrum options, technical and business challenges, and competitive technologies of WiMAX 802.16 standards: physical and MAC layers, channel access, scheduling services, mobility, advanced antenna features, hybrid-ARQ, and more Broadband wireless channels: pathloss, shadowing, cellular systems, sectoring, and fading—including modeling and mitigation OFDM: from basic multicarrier concepts to synchronization, PAR reduction, and clipping MIMO: Multiple antennas, spatial diversity, beamforming, and a cutting-edge treatment of the use of MIMO in WiMAX OFDMA: multiple access, multiuser diversity, adaptive modulation, and resource allocation Networking and services aspects: architecture and protocols for IP QoS, session management, ecurity, and mobility management Predicting performance using link-level and system-level simulations WiMAX network architecture: design principles, reference models, authentication, QoS, and mobility management
