Free Webcast: What Will 5G Be?

Author: 

Joe Boccuzzi

This webinar will provide an overview of areas 5G will address. We will begin with a discussion on the shortcomings of present day cellular systems to highlight the items needing to be addressed in 5G. Provide the overall 5G goals and pillar use cases as defined by ITU. Several deployment options will be provided and summary of the 3GPP scenarios provided. Key system parameters will be discussed and the impact of 5G to a Cloud-RAN network architecture will be highlighted.

LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless

Author: 

Moray Rumney

This book presents the latest details on LTE from a practical and technical perspective. Written by Agilent's measurement experts, it offers a valuable insight into LTE technology and its design and test challenges. Chapters cover the upper layer signaling and system architecture evolution (SAE). Basic concepts such as MIMO and SC-FDMA, the new uplink modulation scheme, are introduced and explained, and the authors look into the challenges of verifying the designs of the receivers, transmitters and protocols of LTE systems.
