  • Presents a focused review of topics on next-generation wireless technologies
  • Describes recent advances such as M2M, the internet of things, and mobile lightweight wireless systems
  • Discusses major challenges for the future, such as energy-efficient wireless communication

Fourth-generation (4G) or long-term evolution (LTE) technology offers the promise of even smarter computing and multimedia applications which will be available anywhere, at any time.

This comprehensive text/reference presents a detailed review of the pioneering research underpinning this emerging technological revolution. The book also examines the various challenges to secure, efficient and cost-effective next-generation wireless networking. Opening with a selection of chapters devoted to the exciting trends in wireless network technology, followed by a section focusing on advanced applications, the text then concludes with an investigation into the future internet systems that will pave the way towards true ubiquitous computing.

Topics and features:

  • Presents the latest advances, standards and technical challenges in a broad range of emerging wireless technologies
  • Discusses cooperative and mesh networks, delay tolerant networks, and other next-generation networks such as LTE
  • Examines real-world applications of vehicular communications, broadband wireless technologies, RFID technology, and energy-efficient wireless communications
  • Introduces developments towards the ‘Internet of Things’ from both a communications and a service perspective
  • Discusses the machine-to-machine communication model, important applications of wireless technologies in healthcare, and security issues in state-of-the-art networks

This wide-ranging, cutting-edge volume is a ‘must-read’ for all researchers and practitioners involved in wireless communications.
