An introduction to technical details related to the PhysicalLayer of the LTE standard with MATLAB(R) The LTE (Long Term Evolution) and LTE-Advanced are among thelatest mobile communications standards, designed to realize thedream of a truly global, fast, all-IP-based, secure broadbandmobile access technology. This book examines the Physical Layer (PHY) of the LTE standardsby incorporating three conceptual elements: an overview of thetheory behind key enabling technologies; a concise discussionregarding standard specifications; and the MATLAB(R) algorithmsneeded to simulate the standard. The use of MATLAB(R), a widely used technical computinglanguage, is one of the distinguishing features of this book.Through a series of MATLAB(R) programs, the author explores eachof the enabling technologies, pedagogically synthesizes an LTE PHYsystem model, and evaluates system performance at each stage.Following this step-by-step process, readers will achieve deeperunderstanding of LTE concepts and specifications throughsimulations. Key Features: Accessible, intuitive, and progressive; one of the fewbooks to focus primarily on the modeling, simulation, andimplementation of the LTE PHY standard Includes case studies and testbenches in MATLAB(R),which build knowledge gradually and incrementally until afunctional specification for the LTE PHY is attained Accompanying Web site includes all MATLAB(R) programs,together with PowerPoint slides and other illustrative examples Dr Houman Zarrinkoub has served as a development manager andnow as a senior product manager with MathWorks, based inMassachusetts, USA. Within his 12 years at MathWorks, he has beenresponsible for multiple signal processing and communicationssoftware tools. Prior to MathWorks, he was a research scientist inthe Wireless Group at Nortel Networks, where he contributed tomultiple standardization projects for 3G mobile technologies. Hehas been awarded multiple patents on topics related to computersimulations. He holds a BSc degree in Electrical Engineering fromMcGill University and MSc and PhD degrees in Telecommunicationsfrom the Institut Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique, inCanada. www.wiley.com/go/zarrinkoub

The book provides a robust and effective, yet simple way of understanding LTE.It is worth the NGN17,500 I paid.
