An introduction to technical details related to the Physical Layer of the LTE standard with MATLAB®

The LTE (Long Term Evolution) and LTE-Advanced are among the latest mobile communications standards, designed to realize the dream of a truly global, fast, all-IP-based, secure broadband mobile access technology.

This book examines the Physical Layer (PHY) of the LTE standards by incorporating three conceptual elements: an overview of the theory behind key enabling technologies; a concise discussion regarding standard specifications; and the MATLAB® algorithms needed to simulate the standard.

The use of MATLAB®, a widely used technical computing language, is one of the distinguishing features of this book. Through a series of MATLAB® programs, the author explores each of the enabling technologies, pedagogically synthesizes an LTE PHY system model, and evaluates system performance at each stage. Following this step-by-step process, readers will achieve deeper understanding of LTE concepts and specifications through simulations.

Key Features:

• Accessible, intuitive, and progressive; one of the few books to focus primarily on the modeling, simulation, and implementation of the LTE PHY standard
• Includes case studies and testbenches in MATLAB®, which build knowledge gradually and incrementally until a functional specification for the LTE PHY is attained
• Accompanying Web site includes all MATLAB® programs, together with PowerPoint slides and other illustrative examples

This is truly a superb text book. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is an excellent combination of the description of the global industry standard, 4G LTE, and the practical implementation details that are needed to implement the standard within the MATLAB environment. The text was written at just the right level, with all of the MATLAB code provided within the book so that the user could further explore either the standard as written or explore user-defined deviations from the standard. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the MATLAB code was so well documented, and the ease of its use added further to the value of the text book. Amidst the jungle of books that are available on the topic of 4G LTE, I think that this text book is truly top-notch because the user can gain first hand knowledge of the standard. It is a jewel, which is well worth its purchase price. Very well written and perfectly suited for the academician or industry specialist who seeks to learn more about 4G LTE within a MATLAB software simulation environment. Well done!
