Fifth-generation cellular radio access networks are currently being standardized as 5G New Radio (NR). The primary objectives of 5G NR are to provide enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) and ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) capabilities. This innovative resource analyzes these applications in detail to help readers understand how the flexible design of NR makes it suitable for a wide range of use cases and applications. The rationale behind the design decisions made during the NR standardization process are explored. Readers will be able to understand the performance limits of NR when applied to non-eMBB scenarios and how NR compares to 4G and IEEE 802.x connectivity solutions for such scenarios. The main features of 5G phase 2 are explored, as well as the use cases that can be addressed by 5G phase 2. The mathematical models are included to help explain the future evolution of NR in Release 16 and beyond. This is the only book that describes both the standards features of NR and the mathematical models/open research issues for 5G, appealing to both industry practitioners and academic researchers.

Following on from the successful first edition (March 2012), this book gives a clear explanation of what LTE does and how it works. The content is expressed at a systems level, offering readers the opportunity to grasp the key factors that make LTE the hot topic amongst vendors and operators across the globe. The book assumes no more than a basic knowledge of mobile telecommunication systems, and the reader is not expected to have any previous knowledge of the complex mathematical operations that underpin LTE. This second edition introduces new material for the current state of the industry, such as the new features of LTE in Releases 11 and 12, notably coordinated multipoint transmission and proximity services; the main short- and long-term solutions for LTE voice calls, namely circuit switched fallback and the IP multimedia subsystem; and the evolution and current state of the LTE market. It also extends some of the material from the first edition, such as inter-operation with other technologies such as GSM, UMTS, wireless local area networks and cdma2000; additional features of LTE Advanced, notably heterogeneous networks and traffic offloading; data transport in the evolved packet core; coverage and capacity estimation for LTE; and a more rigorous treatment of modulation, demodulation and OFDMA. The author breaks down the system into logical blocks, by initially introducing the architecture of LTE, explaining the techniques used for radio transmission and reception and the overall operation of the system, and concluding with more specialized topics such as LTE voice calls and the later releases of the specifications. This methodical approach enables readers to move on to tackle the specifications and the more advanced texts with confidence.

Book Description :

Video Telephony is the real time exchange of voice and video between end-users. It is the basis of a wide range of applications (e.g. Multiparty games, distance learning). Quality of service (QoS) enables network performance control for meeting specific applications and/or end-user requirements. It is a differentiating factor for service providers. Evolved Packet Core (EPC) is the new core network for 3GPP 4G networks. Home Subscriber Server (HSS) is the standardized master database of 3GPP next generation networks including video telephony networks and EPC. It contains the subscription related information that is needed to support the network entities when they handle sessions. The constant increase in the number of subscribers is one of the challenges for future mobile networks including video telephony networks and EPC. Virtualization is a technique used to emulate the physical characteristics of resources. It enables efficiency in resource usage and is a key technology for scalability and elasticity. This thesis proposes an architecture for QoS Enabled video telephony with a Virtualized HSS (VHSS) in a 3GPP 4G environment. It makes two main contributions. Firstly, it proposes a differentiated QoS service delivery platform that relies on EPC. This platform enables the provisioning of a refined differentiated QoS scheme which allows prioritization between different sessions of a same video telephony application running on a same network. This new scheme is a differentiating factor for service providers. Second it proposes a preliminary mechanism for a scalable and elastic HSS in order to cope with the increasing number of subscribers. This is done by decomposing the HSS into three main layers (diameter layer, database computation layer and storage layer). Each of these layers are virtualized and can grow/shrink independently. We have built a proof of concept prototype to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed architecture. Performance measurements have also been made to evaluate viability.
