An Essential Insider’s View of the Development Work of 5G Technology Up to Release 18

5G brings new technology solutions to the 5G mobile networks, including new spectrum options, antenna structures, physical layer and protocols designs, and network architectures. 5G Technology: 3GPP Evolution to 5G-Advanced is an accessible and comprehensive resource that offers explanations of 5G specifications and performance evaluations, aspects of device design, practical deployment considerations and illustrative examples from field experiences.

With contributions from a panel of international experts on the topic (industry insiders working at the forefront of development), the book presents the main new technology components in 5G and describes the physical layer, radio protocols, and network performance indicators associated with them. It has intentionally been written to cater to individuals at all levels of 5G expertise. Some of the topics of discussion and learning resources in the work include:

  • An easy-to-understand insider’s overview of 5G from editors and authors who are actively working with the 5G development in 3GPP, the forum defining the requirements
  • Deployment aspects, such as site density and transport network, plus exploration into 5G performance aspects, including data rates, coverage, and latency
  • A large number of illustrations including simulation and measurement results of 5G technology performance, plus key 5G procedures
  • Updated information on industrial IoT, radio enhancements in Releases 16 and 17, open RAN and virtualized RAN, 5G verticals and new use cases, and the 5G-Advanced development in Release 18 and outlook towards Release 19

5G Technology: 3GPP Evolution to 5G-Advanced serves as a complete resource for wireless researchers, network planners, lecturers in universities, technology analysts, R&D engineers, application developers, and spectrum regulators who wish to thoroughly understand the latest in 5G technology and get ahead of the curve with regards to its potential applications in a wide variety of industries.
