The LTE (Long Term Evolution) and LTE–Advanced are among the latest mobile communications standards developed for the 21st century. The LTE standards are designed to realize the dream of a truly global, fast, all–IP–based, secure broadband mobile access technology. This book examines the physical layer of the LTE standards by incorporating three conceptual elements: an overview of the theory behind key enabling technologies; a concise discussion regarding standard specifications; MATLAB® algorithms needed to simulate the standard. The use of MATLAB®, a widely–used technical computing language, is one of distinguishing features of this book. Using a series of MATLAB® programs, the author explores each of the enabling technologies, pedagogically synthesizes an LTE PHY system model, and evaluates system performance at each stage. With this step–by–step process, readers will achieve deeper understanding of LTE concepts and specifications through simulations. Key Features: Accessible, intuitive and progressive; this is one of the few books to focus primarily on modelling, simulating and implementing the LTE PHY standard Includes case studies and testbenches in MATLAB® that build up knowledge gradually and incrementally until a functional specification for the LTE physical layer is attained Accompanying website includes all MATLAB® programs together with PowerPoint slides and other illustrative examples Dr. Houman Zarrinkoub has served as a development manager and now as a senior product manager with MathWorks, based in Massachusetts USA. Within the 12 years at MathWorks he has been responsible for multiple signal processing and communications software tools. Prior to MathWorks, he was a research scientist in the Wireless Group at Nortel Networks, where he contributed to multiple standardization projects for 3G mobile technologies. He has been awarded multiple patents on topics related to computer simulations. He holds a B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from McGill University and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Telecommunications from the Institut Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique, in Canada.
