5G Mobile Communications : Concepts and Technologies, Hardback Book

5G Mobile Communications : Concepts and Technologies Hardback


This book will help readers comprehend technical and policy elements of telecommunication particularly in the context of 5G.

It first presents an overview of the current research and standardization practices and lays down the global frequency spectrum allocation process.

It further lists solutions to accommodate 5G spectrum requirements. The readers will find a considerable amount of information on 4G (LTE-Advanced), LTE-Advance Pro, 5G NR (New Radio); transport network technologies, 5G NGC (Next Generation Core), OSS (Operations Support Systems), network deployment and end-to-end 5G network architecture.

Some details on multiple network elements (end products) such as 5G base station/small cells and the role of semiconductors in telecommunication are also provided.

Keeping trends in mind, service delivery mechanisms along with state-of-the-art services such as MFS (mobile financial services), mHealth (mobile health) and IoT (Internet-of-Things) are covered at length.

At the end, telecom sector's burning challenges and best practices are explained which may be looked into for today's and tomorrow's networks. The book concludes with certain high level suggestions for the growth of telecommunication, particularly on the importance of basic research, departure from ten-year evolution cycle and having a 20-30 year plan. Explains the conceivable six phases of mobile telecommunication's ecosystem that includes R&D, standardization, product/network/device & application development, and burning challenges and best practicesProvides an overview of research and standardization on 5G Discusses solutions to address 5G spectrum requirements while describing the global frequency spectrum allocation processPresents various case studies and policiesProvides details on multiple network elements and the role of semiconductors in telecommunication Presents service delivery mechanisms with special focus on IoT
