About this book

We are living in an age where ultra-fast internet speed is not just a need, but a necessity. The ever evolving applications demand a reliable network with low latency and high speeds. The widespread commercial adoption of driverless cars, robotic factory floors, AR/VR based immersive sport events will soon come to pass and has already been piloted in major events. All this and so much more is enabled by the power of 5G technology.

In this book, you will develop a solid understanding of the fundamental building blocks that enable this technology. You will unravel the aspects which make 5G unique and capable of addressing such high quality demands. The technologies that back 5G, the enhancements in the air-interface and the packet core that come together to light up the network which is capable of such unbelievable performance. You will discover the means to design and implement 5G Macro and Private networks at the same time understand the various design and deployment options available and what option is best suited for a particular use-case. Next, you will glance at the operational and maintenance aspects of such networks and how 5G works together with fixed wireline and satellite technologies. This book brings together the theoretical and practical aspects of 5G, thereby enabling you to use it as a hand book to bring up a 5G network.
