Opportunities in 5G Networks : A Research and Development Perspective (Hardcover)
About this item
5G is a dramatic paradigm shift from 4G that requires a high flexibility and intelligence in spectrum sharing, millimeter wave communications, integrated IoT access, massive MIMO, smart antennas, Big Data, cloud computing, and many other disruptive technologies. 5G means a new transmission scheme, virtualized SDN-like control, extreme energy efficiency, new regulatory and standardization issues, and support 1000x higher data rate than 4G. The book focuses on the R&D of 5G networks, especially its core components such as millimeter wave communications, Massive MIMO, cloud-based networking, SDN support, Big Data, energy-efficient protocols, and cognitive spectrum management.
