Fourth-generation (4G) or long-term evolution (LTE) technology offers the promise of even smarter computing and multimedia applications which will be available anywhere, at any time.
This comprehensive text/reference presents a detailed review of the pioneering research underpinning this emerging technological revolution. The book also examines the various challenges to secure, efficient and cost-effective next-generation wireless networking. Opening with a selection of chapters devoted to the exciting trends in wireless network technology, followed by a section focusing on advanced applications, the text then concludes with an investigation into the future internet systems that will pave the way towards true ubiquitous computing.
Topics and features:
• Presents the latest advances, standards and technical challenges in a broad range of emerging wireless technologies
• Discusses cooperative and mesh networks, delay tolerant networks, and other next-generation networks such as LTE
• Examines real-world applications of vehicular communications, broadband wireless technologies, RFID technology, and energy-efficient wireless communications
• Introduces developments towards the ‘Internet of Things’ from both a communications and a service perspective
• Discusses the machine-to-machine communication model, important applications of wireless technologies in healthcare, and security issues in state-of-the-art networks
This wide-ranging, cutting-edge volume is a ‘must-read’ for all researchers and practitioners involved in wireless communications.
