mmWave Massive MIMO: A Paradigm for 5G is the first book of its kind to hinge together related discussions on mmWave and Massive MIMO under the umbrella of 5G networks. New networking scenarios are identified, along with fundamental design requirements for mmWave Massive MIMO networks from an architectural and practical perspective. Working towards final deployment, this book updates the research community on the current mmWave Massive MIMO roadmap, taking into account the future emerging technologies emanating from 3GPP/IEEE. The book's editors draw on their vast experience in international research on the forefront of the mmWave Massive MIMO research arena and standardization. This book aims to talk openly about the topic, and will serve as a useful reference not only for postgraduates students to learn more on this evolving field, but also as inspiration for mobile communication researchers who want to make further innovative strides in the field to mark their legacy in the 5G arena.

    mmWave Massive MIMO

    The text has the feel of being very much a compilation of papers that were published in the literature up until the year 2015. That being said, the papers support a structure that is both thorough and comprehensive. In doing so, the reader is presented with a text that can be read at different levels--from on-the-surface through to in-depth--thus providing access to a well-contained single source of information. Somewhat disappointingly, the book is somewhat short of practical topics and does not address issues concerned with realization and implementation. A second revision that addresses this shortcomings might readily find market prominence.
