Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“Where this book is exceptional is that the reader will learn not just how LTE works but why it works.” Adrian Scrase, ETSI Vice-President, International Partnership Projects

The first edition of this book is globally recognized as the ultimate reference book on LTE. Following the success of it predecessor, this second edition is fully updated, covering the latest additions to LTE and a full description of LTE-Advanced.

LTE – The UMTS Long Term Evolution, second edition offers a comprehensive system-level understanding built on explanations of the underlying theory. It includes complete coverage of Release 9 and the first release of LTE-Advanced, Release 10. The book is a collaborative effort of more than 40 key experts representing over 20 companies actively participating in the development of LTE, as well as academia. The book highlights practical implications, illustrates the expected performance, and draws comparisons with the well-known WCDMA/HSPA standards. The authors not only pay special attention to the physical layer, giving an insight into the fundamental concepts of OFDMA, SC-FDMA and MIMO, but also cover the higher protocol layers and system architecture to enable the reader to gain an overall understanding of the system.

Key Features:

  • Comprehensively updated with the latest changes of the LTE Release 8 and 9 specifications, including improved coverage of Radio Resource Management, RF aspects and performance requirements
  • Provides detailed coverage of the new LTE Release 9 features, including: eMBMS, dual-layer beamforming, user equipment positioning, home eNodeBs/femtocells, picocells and Self-Optimizing Networks (SON)
  • Evaluates the LTE system performance
  • Explains LTE-Advanced, beginning with its context and motivation, and covering the key new features of carrier aggregation and high-order MIMO, as well as relaying, enhanced Inter-Cell Interference Coordination (eICIC), network energy saving and minimization of drive tests
  • Discusses future developments such as Cooperative Multi-Point (CoMP) transmission and Machine-Type Communication (MTC)
  • Includes an accompanying website containing a complete list of acronyms related to LTE and LTE-Advanced, with a brief description of each (http://www.wiley.com/go/sesia_theumts)

This book is an invaluable reference for all research and development engineers involved in implementation of LTE or LTE-Advanced, as well as graduate and PhD students in wireless communications. Network operators, service providers and R&D managers will also find this book insightful.

This book is excellent at introducing the concepts of LTE. Don't expect this book to teach you everything. Some concepts like MIMO are good for basic understanding which this book will offer. But you will have to refer other advanced materials like the 3GPP specs and some IEE journals to get a through understanding of the concepts. And unless you work on it professionally there is little to be gained by just reading this book. Use this book as a good reference material which coveres almost all aspect of LTE. I give this book 5 stars because of the depth of coverage not necessarily because of the quality of contents.

Great and up to date detailed look at LTE - Well written, but you likely need a technical degree to fully understand this. That is the intention of the book though.

After reading through the book I am very disappointed with the way the subject matters are presented. The main problem with the book is the lack of illustrative drawings, examples, and summary tables. Instead, the book relies overwhelmingly on verbal descriptions which are oftentimes non-intuitive or ambiguous. The LTE system design involves many level of logical partitions building blocks and functions, such as the allocation of the same radio spectrum to the different data streams and users. The modulation and coding of payload data stream into the RF spectrum. The process for a mobile device to find and connect to the LTE network. The signaling protocol between the mobile device and the network to establish or terminate data transmissions, etc. Each of these is best presented by actual examples and illustrated by plenty of drawings. For an engineer like me, I can get much more understanding by study these actual examples and drawings then the English verbiage. For example, chapter 9 presents the way different type of data channels are multiplexed in frequency and time on a mobile device, a few actual examples of the actual control messages/payload data from these data channels being multiplexed into radio frames would be very helpful and much more informative than all the verbal descriptions used. The same goes with topics like the signaling protocol between the network and the mobile devices to inform the mobile device to receive in the specific time and frequency and to transmit in the specific time and frequency. A few examples to show the actual signaling process between a mobile device and the network to receive or transmit data on the mobile device side would be very informative.Read more ›
