With the First Edition of this book having focused on Coverage Solutions for Cellular Networks in buildings, the Second Edition will continue to provide an overview of Cellular systems to provide the background of the technology, and will be updated to include a significant emphasis on LTE in the new edition. It will address in detail the changes and requirements for LTE. As with the First Edition, the book will cover why Indoor Coverage is needed for GSM, CDMA and UMTS networks and how this coverage is achieved, from basic passive systems all the way through to advanced fiber optic systems. Each method is discussed in detail giving the reader a good understanding of all the available…
