From both a technical and a practical point of view, there is much to examine, evaluate and understand in the new 3GPP LTE cellular technology before its projected deployment in 2010. This book, written by Agilent engineers in collaboration with Anite engineers and LTE expert Dr K. F. Tsang, offers valuable insight into the LTE air interface at the physical layer. Chapters also cover the upper layer signalling and system architecture evolution (SAE). Basic concepts such as MIMO and SC-FDMA, the new uplink modulation scheme, are introduced and explained, and the authors dig into the challenges of verifying the designs of the receivers, transmitters and protocols of LTE systems. The latest information on RF and signalling conformance testing is delivered by authors participating in the 3GPP standards committees.

Summary: Superb account of LTE
Rating: 5

This book is an extremely well written account of LTE, with the emphasis on the design and implementation of the air interface physical layer.

Chapters 1 to 5 give the reader a clear, concise account of the 3GPP specifications for LTE. Unusually for a telecommunications book, the material is extremely well written and easy to read, indicating a lot of care by the editor and authors. The information is quite densely packed and really requires previous knowledge of 3G, but is probably the most effective account of LTE that I have so far read.

My one suggestion for improvement lies in chapters 4 and 5, where I would have appreciated some use cases to illustrate how the different procedures and network elements interact. But this is not an important issue, and does not affect my overall rating.

The book really comes in to its own in chapters 6 and 7, which cover material relevant to design and implementation that lies outside the scope of the specifications. Especially valuable was a 60 page account of the characterisation and measurement of the transmitter and receiver, reinforced by signal analyser plots that illustrate what the main signal impairments actually look like. A concluding chapter describes the enhancements that are being made in LTE-Advanced, to meet the ITU's requirements for 4G.

Because of the material in chapters 6 and 7, this book will be especially valuable to those who are working on the lower parts of the LTE physical layer. However I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who requires a clearly written introduction to LTE.
