Key Features

  • SAE is the core network that supports LTE, the next key stage in development of the UMTS network to provide mobile broadband. It aims to provide an efficient, cost-effective solution for the ever-increasing number of mobile broadband subscribers
  • There is no other book on the market that covers the entire SAE network architecture; this book summarizes the important parts of the standards, but goes beyond mere description and offers real insight and explanation of the technology
  • Fully updated with the latest developments since the first edition published, and now including additional material and insights on industry trends and views regarding future potential applications of SAE

 

Description

Get a comprehensive and detailed insight into the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) with this clear, concise and authoritative guide – a fully updated second edition that covers the latest standards and industry developments
