Description

Cellular Internet of Things: Technologies, Standards and Performance gives insight into the recent work performed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) to develop systems for the Cellular Internet of Things. It presents both the design of the new Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology and how GSM and LTE have evolved to provide Cellular Internet of Things services. The criteria used for the design and objectives of the standardization work are explained, and the technical details and performance of each technology is presented. This book discusses the overall competitive landscape for providing wireless connectivity, also introducing the most promising technologies in the market.

Users will learn how cellular systems work and how they can be designed to cater to challenging new requirements that are emerging in the telecom industry, what the physical layers and procedures in idle and connected mode look like in EC-GSM-IoT, LTE-M, and NB-IoT, and what the expected performance of these new systems is in terms of expected coverage, battery lifetime, data throughput, access delay time and device cost.

Key Features

  • Provides a detailed introduction to the EC-GSM-IoT, LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies
  • Presents network performance of the 3GPP cellular technologies, along with an analysis of the performance of non-cellular alternatives operating in unlicensed spectrum
  • Includes prediction of true performance levels using state-of-the-art simulation models developed in the 3GPP standardization process

Readership

About the Author

Olof Liberg

Olof Liberg is a Master Researcher at Ericsson Business Unit Networks. After studies in Sweden, USA, Germany and Switzerland he received a Bachelor’s degree in Business and Economics and a Master’s degree in Engineering Physics, both from Uppsala University, Sweden. He joined Ericsson in 2008 and has in recent years specialised in the design and standardisation of cellular systems for machine type communications and Internet of Things. He has over the years actively contributed to the work in several standardization bodies such as 3GPP, ETSI and the MulteFire Alliance. He was the chairman of 3GPP TSG GERAN, and its Working Group 1, during the 3GPP pre-study on new radio access technologies for Internet of Things leading up to the specification of EC-GSM-IoT and NB-IoT.
