Cellular Internet of Things: From Massive Deployments to Critical 5G Applications, 2/e

Liberg, Olof, Sundberg, Marten, Wang, Eric



Cellular Internet of Things: From Massive Deployments to Critical 5G Applications, Second Edition, gives insights into the recent and rapid work performed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and the Multefire Alliance (MFA) to develop systems for the Cellular IoT. Beyond the technologies, readers will learn what the mMTC and cMTC market segments look like, deployment options and expected performance in terms of system capacity, expected battery lifetime, data throughput, access delay time and device cost, regulations for operation in unlicensed frequency bands, and how they impact system design and performance.

This new edition contains updated content on the latest EC-GSM IoT, LTE-M and NB-IoT features in 3GPP Release 15, critical communication, i.e. URLLC, specified in 3GPP Release 15 for both LTE and NR, LTE-M and NB-IoT for unlicensed frequency bands specified in the Multefire Alliance (MFA), and an updated outlook of what the future holds in Industrial IoT and drone communications, amongst other topics.


  • Provides ubiquitous wireless connectivity for a diverse range of services and applications, describing their performance and how their specifications were developed to meet the most demanding requirements
  • Describes licensed and unlicensed technologies based on 2G, 4G and 5G technologies and how they have evolved towards the Cellular IoT
  • Presents the Narrowband Internet of Things technology and how GSM, LTE and NR have been designed to provide Cellular Internet of Things services
  • Provides use cases that cover ultra-low complex systems connecting billions of devices (massive MTC, mMTC), critical MTC and cMTC based on Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications (URLLC) to meet strict latency and reliability requirements



這本新版書籍包含了關於3GPP第15版中最新的EC-GSM IoT、LTE-M和NB-IoT功能的更新內容,以及3GPP第15版中為LTE和NR指定的關鍵通信(即URLLC),Multefire聯盟(MFA)中指定的無許可頻段的LTE-M和NB-IoT,以及工業物聯網和無人機通信等未來發展的展望。


- 提供了對各種服務和應用的無所不在的無線連接,描述了它們的性能以及如何開發其規格以滿足最苛刻的要求。
- 描述了基於2G、4G和5G技術的許可和無許可技術以及它們如何發展成為蜂窩物聯網。
- 介紹了窄帶物聯網技術以及GSM、LTE和NR如何設計提供蜂窩物聯網服務。
- 提供了覆蓋數十億設備的超低複雜系統(大規模MTC、mMTC)、基於超可靠低延遲通信(URLLC)的關鍵MTC和cMTC的使用案例,以滿足嚴格的延遲和可靠性要求。
