Femtocell Communications and Technologies

Book Description

Femtocell is currently the most promising technology for supporting the increasing demand of data traffic in wireless networks. Femtocells provide an opportunity for enabling innovative mobile applications and services in home and office environments.
Femtocell Communications and Technologies: Business Opportunities and Deployment Challenges is an extensive and thoroughly revised version of a collection of review and research based chapters on femtocell technology. This work focuses on mobility and security in femtocell, cognitive femtocell, and standardization and deployment scenarios. Several crucial topics addressed in this book are interference mitigation techniques, network integration option, cognitive optimization, and economic incentives to install femtocells that may have a larger impact on their ultimate success. The book is optimized for use by graduate researchers who are familiar with the fundamentals of wireless communication and cellular concepts.
