Product Description 5G NR: Architecture, Technology, Implementation, and Operation of 3GPP New Radio Standards is an in-depth, systematic, technical reference on 3GPPâs New Radio standards (Release 15 and beyond), covering the underlying theory, functional descriptions, practical considerations, and implementation of the 5G new radio access technology. The book describes the design and operation of individual components and shows how they are integrated into the overall system and operate from a systemâs perspective. Uniquely, this book gives detailed information on RAN protocol layers, transports, network architectures, and services, as well as practical implementation and deployment issues, making it suitable for researchers and engineers who are designing and developing 5G systems. Reflecting on the author's 30 plus years of experience in signal processing, microelectronics, and wireless communication system design, this book is ideal for professional engineers, researchers, and graduate students who are working and researching in cellular communication systems and protocols as well as mobile broadband wireless standards. Review In-depth, systematic and structured technical reference on 3GPP's LTE-Advanced (Release 15 and beyond), covering theory, technology and implementation About the Author Dr. Sassan Ahmadi is the Director of 5G Wireless Systems and Standards with Xilinx Inc., and a Lecturer at Stanford University with over 30 years of experience in signal processing and communication system design as well as cellular systems standards development. Previously, he held senior positions at Apple, Intel and Nokia. He has authored two books on wireless communications, "LTE-Advanced, A Practical Systems Approach to Understanding 3GPP LTE Releases 10 and 11 Radio Access Technologies", Academic Press, 2013 and "Mobile WiMAX, A Systems Approach to Understanding IEEE 802.16m Radio Access Technology", Academic Press, 2010 and over 90 patents/patent applications on various aspects of 4G and 5G radio access networks. He is the co-author of six other books as well as and the author of more than 20 refereed journal and conference papers. For over two decades, he has been a technical contributor and leader in the development of the cellular standards including 5G NR, IMT-Advanced, and IEEE 802.16m standards in 3GPP, ITU-R, and IEEE. He has taught graduate courses at Stanford University since 2014 and University of California, San Diego between 2000 and 2003.
