New Book Details Mobile Data's Rein in the 4G World
According to this book, mobile data revenues surpassing voice services, just when LTE is taking off, is no coincidence
PR9.NET April 10, 2014 - SUPERIOR, Mich. – Worried about too many books on Long Term Evolution (LTE) and fourth generation (4G) wireless technologies, and the fact that these books are thick with concepts, terminology and tech-talk? The new book "Age of Mobile Data: The Wireless Journey To All Data 4G Networks" avoids unnecessary detail, focusing instead on conveying a sound understanding of the LTE/4G systems.
The book is aimed at mobile industry professionals, who want to understand what LTE is and how it works in the larger mobile data world. It is also aimed to educate and inform those working in non-technical roles, such as project managers, marketing executives, and industry analysts and consultants.
"The arrival of LTE-based 4G networks marks a crucial crossroads for the wireless industry and the name of this crossroads is mobile data," said Majeed Ahmad, author of the book. "Age of Mobile Data celebrates that defining moment in the digital life with a past, present and future storyline."
He further added: "The 4G landscape is evolving at a relentless pace and that also makes it very hard for tech business managers to catch up with this new industry juggernaut. Age of Mobile Data takes an evolutionary approach to explain the development of LTE/4G wireless technologies and how they are transforming the larger IT industry landscape."
This quintessential account first takes readers all the way back to the LTE roots: mobile data. The profile of early mobile data technologies like ARDIS and Mobitex is followed by a detailed account of the first major mobile data breakthrough: 2.5G-based GPRS. Next, the book touches upon the first specialized mobile data network, 3G, before it settles on its primary subject: LTE. Age of Mobile Data provides a detailed treatment of the anatomy of LTE and associated areas such as VoLTE and LTE Advanced.
The book explains the key industry concepts like OFDM, MIMO, HetNet and small-cells in graphic details. Age of Mobile Data also offers readers a glimpse of the future beyond 4G networks by explaining the fifth generation (5G) wireless roadmap and how this might evolve from the existing 4G systems. Moreover, to offer a complete picture to its readers, the book delves into how Wi-Fi networks are complementing cellular systems amid an exponential increase in mobile data traffic.
Below are the key highlights of the book:
* Details of early mobile data initiatives like ARDIS, Mobitex and CDPD
* How GSM networks evolved into mobile data platforms like GPRS
* The myth and reality of 3G network's mobile data promise
* The story behind mobile operators' love and hate relationship with Wi-Fi
* What is the real 4G?
* The anatomy of LTE and VoLTE systems
* The major building blocks of LTE Advanced
