This multimedia eBook represents a comprehensive survey of the landscape of 5G and LTE-Advanced Pro technologies in a single self-contained source of the workings of the systems that are expected to be prevalent in the coming decades.  While the authors’ relevant industry experience enables the multimedia eBook to focus on most fundamental and important aspects of various technologies, its uniqueness stems from its use of a variety of multimedia elements including videos, podcasts, and interactive exercises-the first of its kind in the cellular industry. This multimedia eBook takes the learner through the journey from LTE/LTE-Advanced to LTE-Advanced Pro to 5G while providing a unique and unforgettable learning experience.

Still in production, a few elements of the e-book are available now with the full release of the multimedia eBook to come in Fall 2018, soon after the publication of the 5G Phase 1 specifications by 3GPP in Summer 2018.

Make use of the courses available now and subscribe (HOW?) to receive updates when new chapters are posted.
