The aim of this book is to provide comprehensive coverage of current state of the art theoretical and technological aspects of broadband mobile and wireless networks focusing on Long Term Evolution Network. The presentation starts from basic principles, and proceeds to the most advanced topics. Provided schemes are developed and oriented in the context of actual closed standards of the IEEE working groups and the 3 GPPP LTE. Also this book will focus on the understanding of the LTE technology as well as the study of its performance in terms of mobility, quality of service, security, resource allocation.
Starts from the evolution of mobile broadband and follows the evolution up to the present.
Contains a large number of illustrations (including computer experiments)
Uses Mathematical analyses.
Focuses on channel coding, QoS Operations, and network architecture
