Description

5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access Technology, Second Edition, follows the authors' highly celebrated books on 3G and 4G and provides a new level of insight into 5G NR. After background discussion of 5G, including requirements, spectrum aspects, and the standardization timeline, all technology features of the first phase of NR are described in detail. The book covers 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 foundation in NR and different NR technology components, giving insight into why a certain solution has been selected.This second edition is updated to reflect the latest developments in Release 16 and includes brand new chapters on: NR in unlicensed spectrum; NR-U in Rel-16; IAB; V2X and sidelink in Rel-16; industrial IoT; IIoT and referring to the URLLC enhancements for PDCCH; RIM/CL; and positioning. Also included are the key radio-related requirements of NR; design principles; technical features of basic NR transmission structure—showing where it was inherited from LTE, 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 and the benefits of their interworking as one system; and different aspects of mobility in NR. RF requirements for NR are described for BS and UE, the legacy bands, and for the new mm-wave bands.
