A concise introduction to IMT-Advanced Systems, including
LTE-Advanced and WiMAX
There exists a strong demand for fully extending emerging
Internet services, including collaborative applications and social
networking, to the mobile and wireless domain. Delivering such
services can be possible only through realizing broadband in the
wireless. Two candidate technologies are currently competing in
fulfilling the requirements for wireless broadband networks, WiMAX
and LTE. At the moment, LTE and its future evolution LTE-Advanced
are already gaining ground in terms of vendor and operator support.
Whilst both technologies share certain attributes (utilizing
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) in downlink,
accommodating smart antennas and full support for IP-switching, for
example), they differ in others (including uplink technology,
scheduling, frame structure and mobility support). Beyond
technological merits, factors such as deployment readiness,
ecosystem maturity and migration feasibility come to light when
comparing the aptitude of the two technologies.
"LTE, LTE-Advanced and WiMAX: Towards IMT-Advanced Networks"
provides a concise, no-nonsense introduction to the two
technologies, covering both interface and networking
considerations. More critically, the book gives a multi-faceted
comparison, carefully analyzing and distinguishing the
characteristics of each technology and spanning both technical and
economic merits. A "big picture" understanding of the market
strategies and forecasts is also offered.Discusses and critically
evaluates LTE, LTE-Advanced and WiMAX (Legacy and Advanced)Gives an
overview of the principles and advances of each enabling
technologyOffers a feature-by-feature comparison between the
candidate technologiesIncludes information which appeals to both
industry practitioners and academicsProvides an up-to-date report
on market and industry status
