Review at amazon: Fundamentals of 5G mobile networks

Today i read the book "Fundamentals of 5G mobile networks":

This book is a collection of 10 articles around 5G, framed by an introduction and summary from the editor Jonathan Rodriguez.

More or less every article starts with the same motivation for 5G: mobile traffic will increase 1000times form 2010 to 2020.
Here some findings from the articles:
  • 5G is not one radio access technology (RAT). It will be a collection of RATs like small cells, SON, ... (chapter 1)
  • Spectral efficiency is about 1 bps/Hz/cell - gains can be achieved with multi-antenna techniques and small cells (chapter 3)
  • 5G devices are expected to exploit spectrum opportunities efficiently on the fly (chapter 6)
  • new transceivers have to be built with excellent power saving characteristics and tunable RF frontend radio. (chapter 11)
If you are interested, take a look at my review at amazon.de. (like all my reviews: written in german ;-)
