Still providing the thorough breakdown of the key areas of LTE of the first edition, this new revised edition of LTE for UMTS includes some important new sections on updates to the standards, as well as a look at possible future developments. Having been the definitive text on LTE following the LTE L1 standards, this new edition includes a detailed section on 3GPP LTE Release 9 content. Whilst still explaining the foundation concepts such as System Architecture, the Physical Layer and OFDMA, SC-FDMA and MIMO in LTE, this revised edition includes supplementary sections on MBMS (Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service), femto (home base station), SON (Self Optimized Networks), Emergency calls, as well as MIMO updates. About the Author Harri Holma and Antti Toskala are both with Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) in Finland working on the cutting edge technologies for mobile communications today. They are involved with 3GPP Standardisation, ensuring they are in key positions to write such a timely publication. TABLE OF CONTENTS Preface. Acknowledgements.
