TRADE NEWS: Agilent Technologies Announces Second Edition LTE And LTE-Advanced Book

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced the second edition of its book “LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless: Design and Measurement Challenges,” adding LTE-Advanced and more to its in-depth examination of the 3GPP LTE cellular technology and the challenges it poses to engineering design and test teams. Agilent introduced the new edition at Mobile World Congress, Feb. 25, in Barcelona, Spain.

With more than 40 authors and now at 648 pages, this edition (published by Wiley) provides technical and practical knowledge about the complex LTE and LTE-Advanced technology. The content comes from Agilent engineers working with the technology on a daily basis, both in the lab and on the committees that are defining the LTE standards.

This edition is updated with the latest 3GPP standards, including Release 11, and provides insights looking forward to Release 12. It has more detail on physical and upper layer signaling, MIMO and advanced performance testing on receivers and transmitters. It covers new material on functional testing and the latest on RF and signaling conformance testing. It also has a new section on non-signaling manufacturing test.

Moray Rumney, the technical editor, joined Hewlett-Packard/Agilent Technologies in 1984, after completing a bachelor’s degree in electronics from Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University. Rumney joined the European Telecommunications Standards Institute in 1991 and 3GPP in 1999, where he was a significant contributor to the development of type approval tests for GSM and UMTS. He currently represents Agilent at 3GPP RAN WG4, where the air interface for HSPA+ and LTE-Advanced is being developed. Rumney’s current focus is in MIMO over-the-air test methods. Rumney has published many technical articles in the field of cellular communications and is a regular speaker and chairman at industry conferences. He is a member of IET and a chartered engineer.
