The expert guide to the future of global cellular communications: Long-Term Evolution (LTE), for every business and technical decision-maker bull; bull;A complete framework for understanding LTE, by the authors of our recent bestseller, Fundamentals of WiMAX. bull;Covers technical foundations, standards, and even the latest experimental results. bull;A multi-layered approach: thorough enough for wireless experts, but basic enough for managers, marketers, software developers, and other non-specialists. Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is rapidly emerging as the future of global communications: the single global cellular, data, and voice standard that will replace both CDMA and TDMA. Companies ranging from Verizon Wireless to Vodafone and China Mobile have committed to it, and ABI Research estimates that there will be 32,000,000 LTE subscribers by 2013. However, LTE is radically different from traditional cellular networks. Professionals will need new skills to plan, build, and deploy LTE networks, and non-technical specialists will need new understanding to make intelligent decisions about them. In this book, four leading experts bring together all the information both groups need in order to move forward. Following the same approach that made their recent Fundamentals of WiMAX so successful, the authors offer a complete framework for understanding and evaluating LTE. Readers will learn how and why LTE has evolved; review its technical foundations and radio standards; compare its performance with 3G cellular and WiMAX; and even review late-breaking experimental results from the authors' own work at AT and T Laboratories. They will also find practical tutorials on essential LTE-related technologies such as OFDM, SC-FDMA, and MIMO. LTE is the one technology every cellular network professional and manager needs to master -- and this is the one book they can all use to master it
