A technological overview of LTE and WiMAX
LTE, WiMAX and WLAN Network Design, Optimization andPerformance Analysis provides a practical guide to LTE andWiMAX technologies introducing various tools and concepts usedwithin. In addition, topics such as traffic modelling of IP-centricnetworks, RF propagation, fading, mobility, and indoor coverage areexplored; new techniques which increase throughput such as MIMO andAAS technology are highlighted; and simulation, network design andperformance analysis are also examined. Finally, in the latter partof the book Korowajczuk gives a step-by-step guide to networkdesign, providing readers with the capability to build reliable androbust data networks.
By focusing on LTE and WiMAX this book extends current networkplanning approaches to next generation wireless systems based onOFDMA, providing an essential resource for engineers and operatorsof fixed and wireless broadband data access networks. Withinformation presented in a sequential format, LTE, WiMAX andWLAN Network Design, Optimization and Performance Analysis aidsa progressive development of knowledge, complementing lattergraduate and postgraduate courses while also providing a valuableresource to network designers, equipment vendors, referencematerial, operators, consultants, and regulators.
