5G NR : The Next Generation Wireless Access Technology, 2/e (Paperback)

Dahlman, Erik, Parkvall, Stefan, Skold, Johan



5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access Technology, Second Edition, follows the authors' highly celebrated books on 3G and 4G and provides a new level of insight into 5G NR. After background discussion of 5G, including requirements, spectrum aspects, and the standardization timeline, all technology features of the first phase of NR are described in detail. The book covers the NR physical-layer structure and higher-layer protocols, RF and spectrum aspects, and co-existence and interworking with LTE. The book provides a good foundation in NR and different NR technology components, giving insight into why a certain solution has been selected.

This second edition is updated to reflect the latest developments in Release 16 and includes brand new chapters on: NR in unlicensed spectrum; NR-U in Rel-16; IAB; V2X and sidelink in Rel-16; industrial IoT; IIoT and referring to the URLLC enhancements for PDCCH; RIM/CL; and positioning. Also included are the key radio-related requirements of NR; design principles; technical features of basic NR transmission structure--showing where it was inherited from LTE, where it deviates from it, and the reasons why-- NR multi-antenna transmission functionality; detailed description of the signals and functionality of the initial NR access, including signals for synchronization and system information; random access and paging; LTE/NR co-existence in the same spectrum and the benefits of their interworking as one system; and different aspects of mobility in NR. RF requirements for NR are described for BS and UE, the legacy bands, and for the new mm-wave bands.


《5G NR: The Next Generation Wireless Access Technology, Second Edition》是作者在3G和4G方面廣受讚譽的書籍的續集,提供了對5G NR的更深入的洞察。書中首先介紹了5G的背景,包括需求、頻譜方面和標準化時間表,然後詳細描述了NR第一階段的所有技術特點。書中涵蓋了NR的物理層結構和高層協議、射頻和頻譜方面,以及與LTE的共存和互操作。該書為NR和不同的NR技術組件提供了良好的基礎,並解釋了為什麼選擇了某種解決方案。

這本第二版更新了Release 16的最新發展,並新增了以下全新章節:非授權頻譜中的NR;Rel-16中的NR-U;IAB;V2X和Rel-16中的sidelink;工業物聯網;工業物聯網和針對PDCCH的URLLC增強功能;RIM/CL;以及定位。書中還包括NR的關鍵無線相關需求、設計原則、基本NR傳輸結構的技術特點,展示了它是從LTE繼承了哪些部分,又有哪些不同之處以及原因,NR多天線傳輸功能,對初始NR接入的信號和功能進行了詳細描述,包括用於同步和系統信息的信號、隨機接入和分頁、LTE/NR在同一頻譜中的共存以及它們作為一個系統互操作的好處,以及NR中不同方面的移動性。書中還描述了NR的基站和用戶設備的射頻需求,包括遺留頻段和新的毫米波頻段。
