LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the 3GPP's (3rd Generation Partnership Project) new standard and accompanying technologies that mobile network operators such as ATT, Verizon and TeliaSonera are adopting for their networks.

To move to higher-speed networks that can cater to customer demand for mobile broadband multimedia applications, the 3GPP has developed the latest LTE-Advanced (LTE Release 10) standard, which will be fixed in December 2010. This book focuses on LTE and LTE-Advanced, and provides engineers with real insight and understanding into the why and how of the standard and its related technologies. This book is written by engineers from Ericsson--the world's leading telecommunications supplier--who was heavily involved in the development of the standard.

Key Features

  • Follow-up to the very successful 3G Evolution, now focusing on LTE and LTE Advanced standard and its accompanying technologies
  • Complete and clear explanation of LTE Advanced by the people who played a leading role in its development, which will enable engineers to quickly grasp the latest 3GPP Release 10 standard and implement it in their products
  • Not a contributed book as most others on this topic are: this book gives an integrated introduction to the technologies and the standard


Wireless and RF communications, R and D engineers and graduate students
