5G Radio Access Network Architecture : The Dark Side of 5G, Hardback Book

5G Radio Access Network Architecture : The Dark Side of 5G Hardback

Edited by Sasha Sirotkin

Part of the Wiley - IEEE series

Hardback

Description

Discover how the NG-RAN architecture is, and isn't, ready for the challenges introduced by 5G5G Radio Access Network Architecture: The Dark Side of 5G explores foundational and advanced topics in Radio Access Network (RAN) architecture and why a re-thinking of that architecture is necessary to support new 5G requirements.

The distinguished engineer and editor Sasha Sirotkin has included numerous works written by industry insiders with state of the art research at their disposal.

The book explains the relevant standards and technologies from an academic perspective, but also explains why particular standards decisions were made and how a variety of NG-RAN architecture options could be deployed in real-life networks. All major standards and technologies associated with the NG-RAN architecture are discussed in this book, including 3GPP, O-RAN, Small Cell Forum, IEEE, and IETF.

Readers will learn about how a re-design of the RAN architecture would ensure that 5G networks can deliver their promised throughput and low latency KPIs consistently and sustainably. The book is structured as follows:An overview of the market drivers of the NG-RAN architecture, like spectrum models, 5G-relevant regulatory considerations, and 5G radio interface technical requirementsAn overview of the 5G System, from the core network, to the RAN, to the radio interface protocols and physical layer, with emphasis on how these are different compared to 4GRelease-15 RAN architectures defined in 3GPP, O-RAN, and Small Cell ForumRAN architecture evolution in Release-16 and Release-17Enabling technologies, like virtualization, open source technologies, multi-access edge (MEC) computing, and operations, administration, and management (OAM)NG-RAN deployment considerations, objectives, and challenges, like costs, spectrum and radio propagation considerations, and coveragePerfect for network designers and operators who require a solid understanding of the NG-RAN architecture, 5G Radio Access Network Architecture also belongs on the bookshelves of network engineers who aim to increase their understanding of the standards and technologies relevant to the NG-RAN architecture.
