  • Introduction

    Now in its fifth edition, the bestselling book on UMTS has been updated to cover 3GPP WCDMA and High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) from Release 99 to Release 9. Written by leading experts in the field, the book explains HSPA performance based on simulations and field experience, and illustrates the benefits of HSPA evolution (HSPA+) both from the operators and from the end user's perspective. It continues to provide updated descriptions of the 3GPP standard including the physical layer, radio protocols on layers 1-3 and a system architecture description. The challenges and solutions regarding terminal RF design are also discussed, including the benefits of HSPA+ power saving features. There is also the addition of a new chapter on femto cells as part of the updates to this fifth edition. Key updates include: * HSPA evolution (HSPA+); * Multicarrier HSPA solutions; * HSPA femto cells (home base stations); * TD-SCDMA system description; * Te minal power consumption optimization. * Updated description of LTE.

  • Link Adaptation

    The basic idea of link adaptation is to adapt certain transmission parameters to varying channel conditions as they are monitored and measured by the mobile system. This chapter overviews the dynamic nature of the long term evolution (LTE) standard. It reviews various measurements made in the mobile receiver in order to ascertain the channel conditions as a function of time. The chapter discusses various MATLAB algorithms used to generate channel‐state reports in the receiver. It explains the algorithms that implement adaptations based on the channel‐quality measures, including algorithms for adaptive modulation and coding, adaptive precoding for determination of the best precoder matrix, and adaptive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) for resolving occasional rank deficiencies in spatial multiplexing modes of transmission. The chapter reviews the signal‐processing chain involved in the transmission of downlink control information (DCI).

  • LTE Introduction

    This introductory chapter of _LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless ‐ Design and Measurement Challenges, Second Edition: Design and Measurement Challenges_ provides an overview of the long term evolution (LTE) system, and describes the evolution of the 3GPP UMTS specifications towards LTE. High level requirements for LTE/System Architecture Evolution (SAE) and the timeline of LTE/SAE development are also discussed. The book explains design and measurement tools and techniques that engineering teams can use to accelerate turning the long term evolution (LTE) specifications into a working system. The first half of the book provides an overview of the specifications starting with RF aspects and moving through the physical layer and upper layer signaling to the system architecture evolution (SAE). The remainder of the book provides a more detailed study of the extensive range of design and measurement techniques and tools that are available to help bring LTE from theory to deployment.
