Mobile data traffic is expected to exceed traffic from wired devices in the next couple of years. This emerging future will be empowered by revolutionary 5G radio network technologies with a focus on application-driven connectivity, transparently deployed over various technologies, infrastructures, users, and devices to realize the vision of ‘the internet of everything.' This book presents a road map of 5G, from advanced radio technologies to innovative resource management approaches and novel network architectures and system concepts.

Topics covered include:
- challenges for efficient multi-service coexistence for 5G below 6GHz
- new quasi-deterministic approaches to channel modelling in millimeter-wave bands
- large scale antenna systems
- effects of densification and randomness of infrastructure deployment in cellular networks
- wireless device-to-device (D2D) links for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication
- caching in large wireless networks; full duplexing
- decoupled uplink and downlink access in heterogeneous networks
- wireless networks virtualization
- regulation, business, and technology perspectives on licensed shared access (LSA) and three-tier spectrum sharing models.

5G Wireless Technologies is an invaluable reference for researchers and advanced students working in wireless and digital communications, and industrial R&D telecommunications designers.
