Description

5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access Technology follows the authors' highly celebrated books on 3G and 4G by providing a new level of insight into 5G NR. After an initial discussion of the background to 5G, including requirements, spectrum aspects and the standardization timeline, all technology features of the first phase of NR are described in detail. Included is a detailed description of the NR physical-layer structure and higher-layer protocols, RF and spectrum aspects and co-existence and interworking with LTE. The book provides a good understanding of NR and the different NR technology components, giving insight into why a certain solution was selected. Content includes: Key radio-related requirements of NR, design principles, technical features Details of basic NR transmission structure, showing where it has been inherited from LTE and where it deviates from it, and the reasons why NR Multi-antenna transmission functionality Detailed description of the signals and functionality of the initial NR access, including signals for synchronization and system information, random access and paging LTE/NR co-existence in the same spectrum, the benefits of their interworking as one system The different aspects of mobility in NR RF requirements for NR will be described both for BS and UE, both for the legacy bands and for the new mm-wave bands

Key Features

    Excellent book

    I find the book very well written and instructive, covering most topics of 5G NR but also creating an adequate background based on LTE for the comprehension of advanced topics.

    The book covers all the topics comprehensively. Elsevier has provided good service

    5G NR overview

    The book provides a reasonable overview about the 5G NR from all perspectives. With some 5G features like e.g. beam forming the book could go a bit more in detail, even thru it is known that these features are still under development.

    5G Physical Layer

    "5G Physical Layer" from Elsevier's Academic Press, is the latest title to tackle what is arguably the most complex mobile communications technology to date--5G NR. This is a timely publication that combines a wealth of information obtained from many years of work primarily conducted at Ericsson Research. "5G Physical Layer" can be read either as a stand alone reference book or as a complement to Elsevier's 5G NR (ISBN:9780128143230) and should find a place on the desk or bench of any practising RF engineer working in the development, design or testing of 5G NR.

    quite useful

    I believe that if you are interesting at least PHY layer, this book is strongly recommended

  • AmitKansal Mon Oct 15 2018

    Worthwhile, timely, yet dissappointing

    Within the time NR has developed, the book is a timely companion to the developing standard, with a focus on the generic techniques and features of NR, and how NR compares with LTE. However, it lacks the detail of many new aspects of NR, that would have made the book indispensable. Assume one has to wait for edition 2 for that, by which time it may be too late for folks working on NR currently.
