Book ToC Reviews Me Specs Videos
"I like how this book presents all the Open RAN technologies and standards in a coherent manner. I was a bit cautious initially, as oftentimes edited books with content from different contributors end up being just a "collection of articles", but this is absolutely not the case with this book. The editor did a good job tying it all up together, explaining not just how different Open RAN architecture variants work, but also why they've been designed that way."

"What I really like about the book is that there is a great deal of information about Architecture as well as why certain decisions were made and what are the challenges. The interfaces, the protocol stack and the physical layer all occupy a small section in chapter 3 which I am assuming is present for completion. Some readers may want to become familiar with them before proceeding further.

I believe that most people will find chapter 4 extremely valuable as it is 111 pages long and details the NG-RAN Architecture, looks at the CU-DU split, including signaling messages, then looks at Dual-Connectivity, CUPS, SDN, Lower-layer split (LLS), Fronthaul interface, OAM, Small cells, etc."

"This books goes into great technical detail about all aspects of 5G RAN, the indexing is very useful to find specific topics and it provides rational about different features and why they are used. Despite the depth of technical information and serious amounts of jargon used this book is very well put together in an easy to understand and read manner. Aimed at people who are working in the field of 5G RAN or those studying it - it's an excellent resource."

"...writer of the book is Sasha Sirotkin of 3GPP and Intel, but he invited a dream team of technologies’ professionals as contributors: 25 people from top global tech corporations focused on wireless networks – from Intel, Qualcomm and Cisco to ZTE Corp., RAD Data Communications, Thales Alenia Space, and others."
