Artech House announced the publication of "5G and Satellite Spectrum, Standards and Scale" by Geoff Varrall. This new resource presents the emerging role of Low Earth Orbit (LEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Geostationary satellites (GSO) as a delivery option for backhaul and wide area rural and urban mobile broadband and fixed access. The book offers insight into recently established Non Terrestrial Network standards. Readers learn which bands will need to be supported in next generation 5G and satellite devices and networks and how the bands will be characterized. Channel spacing, guard bands, FDD or TDD, out of band emission limits and in band performance requirements are discussed. The book discusses what interference issues will arise from new band allocations including co-shared allocations and how interference will be mitigated in and between next generation terrestrial and satellite 5G networks. Readers learn how modulation choices will affect co-existence issues.

The book discusses the design, performance, cost and test implications of integrating next generation satellite physical and MAC layers with release 16 and 17 5G standards and explores how these emerging spectrum and standards map on to IOT and MTC use cases in specific vertical markets. Readers learn how new active and passive antennas in the K-,V-, W- and E-Bands impact the satellite link budget and satellite delivery cost economics.

"5G and Satellite Spectrum, Standards and Scale" is available now from Artech House, a leading publisher of books for professionals in high technology industries.
