A practical guide to LTE design, test and measurement, thisnew edition has been updated to include the latestdevelopments
This book presents the latest details on LTE from a practicaland technical perspective. Written by Agilent’s measurementexperts, it offers a valuable insight into LTE technology and itsdesign and test challenges. Chapters cover the upper layersignaling and system architecture evolution (SAE). Basic conceptssuch as MIMO and SC-FDMA, the new uplink modulation scheme, areintroduced and explained, and the authors look into the challengesof verifying the designs of the receivers, transmitters andprotocols of LTE systems. The latest information on RF andsignaling conformance testing is delivered by authors participatingin the LTE 3GPP standards committees.
This second edition has been considerably revised to reflect themost recent developments of the technologies and standards.Particularly important updates include an increased focus onLTE-Advanced as well as the latest testing specifications.
- Fully updated to include the latest information on LTE 3GPPstandards
- Chapters on conformance testing have been majorly revised andthere is an increased focus on LTE-Advanced
- Includes new sections on testing challenges as well as over theair MIMO testing, protocol testing and the most up-to-date testcapabilities of instruments
- Written from both a technical and practical point of view byleading experts in the field
