Product Description 5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access TechnologyÂ follows the authors' highly celebrated books on 3G and 4G by providing a new level of insight into 5G NR. After an initial discussion of the background to 5G, including requirements, spectrum aspects and the standardization timeline, all technology features of the first phase of NR are described in detail. Included is a detailed description of the NR physical-layer structure and higher-layer protocols, RF and spectrum aspects and co-existence and interworking with LTE. The book provides a good understanding of NR and the different NR technology components, giving insight into why a certain solution was selected. Content includes: Key radio-related requirements of NR, design principles, technical features Details of basic NR transmission structure, showing where it has been inherited from LTE and where it deviates from it, and the reasons why NR Multi-antenna transmission functionality Detailed description of the signals and functionality of the initial NR access, including signals for synchronization and system information, random access and paging LTE/NR co-existence in the same spectrum, the benefits of their interworking as one system The different aspects of mobility in NR RF requirements for NR will be described both for BS and UE, both for the legacy bands and for the new mm-wave bands Review Understand the technologies and standards for 3GPP's 5GNR and gain insight into why the solutions were decided upon, from the experts deeply involved in the standardsâ development About the Author Erik Dahlman works at Ericsson Research and are deeply involved in 4G and 5G development and standardization since the early days of 3G research.
