Gain a deep, practical understanding of 5G technology, applications, architecture, standards, and ecosystem
The 5G ultra-high-speed wireless communication standard is a key technological leap forward–substantially increasing capacity and speed, improving current use cases, and making many new applications practical. For technical managers, professionals, and students, 5G requires important new knowledge and expertise. In 5G Wireless: A Comprehensive Introduction (ePub/PDF) renowned information technology author William Stallings provides a comprehensive and unified explanation of 5G’s technologies, key applications, and standards.
- Understand the 5G ecosystem, its building blocks, standards, and R&D roadmaps
- Discover how 5G NextGen core (backbone) networks serve and connect wireless access networks that connect user devices
- Discover the Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) use case, where 5G improves 4G in applications like smart offices and dense urban communications
- Master key 5G NR Air Interface and Radio Access Network (RAN) concepts, including MIMO antennas, millimeter-wave transmission, and OFDM multiplexing
- Learn how Massive Machine Type Communications (mMTC) and Ultra-Reliable and Low-Latency Communications (URLCC) support new applications such as IoT, fog, and cloud
Like Stallings’ other award-winning textbooks, this ebook will help you quickly find the information and gain the mastery to do well with critical new technology. Stallings first explains how cellular networks have progressed through 4G and now 5G, and surveys 5G’s application areas and use cases. Then, he thoroughly introduces the 5G core network, covering NFV, SDN, network slicing, QoS, and edge computing; and provides detailed coverage of the 5G air interface and radio access network. All over, key concepts are illuminated through realistic examples, review questions help you test your understanding, and references support further exploration.
