5G and Satellite Spectrum, Standards, and Scale by Geoff Varrall | PDF Free Download.
Geoff Varrall joined RTT in 1985 as an executive director and shareholder to develop RTT’s international business as a provider of technology and business services to the wireless industry.
He codeveloped RTT’s original series of design and facilitation workshops, including RF Technology, Data over Radio, Introduction to Mobile Radio, and Private Mobile Radio Systems, and also developed The Oxford Programme, a five-day strategic technology, and market program presented annually between 1991 and 2005.
Geoff has been running in-depth technology and market workshops for the industry for over 33 years, spanning five generations of mobile, cellular, and Wi-Fi technologies.
Mr. Varrall is a co-author of the Mobile Radio Servicing Handbook (Heinemann Butterworth, UK), Data Over Radio (Quantum Publishing, Mendocino, USA), and 3G Handset and Network Design (John Wiley, New York).
Mr. Varrall’s fourth book, Making Telecoms Work—From Technical Innovation to Commercial Success (John Wiley) was published in early 2012. His fifth book, 5G Spectrum, and Standards was published by Artech House in July 2016.
This book, 5G and Satellite Spectrum, Standards and Scale brings the 5G story up to date and places the 5G business model into a broader connectivity context, including satellite and Wi-Fi products, networks, and systems.
Mr. Varrall regularly presents workshops and masterclasses in the UK, Singapore, Southeast Asia, and Australasia. In his spare time, he plays jazz trumpet, flügelhorn, and cornet semiprofessionally, and is a keen marathon runner and ultrarunner.
We live in an always-on world, where our social, political, and working lives are driven and supported by connectivity in a way that would have been scarcely believable 20 years ago.
A huge proliferation of smart devices, the majority being machine-to-machine devices, is quietly and efficiently automating the functioning of our world, fed by an explosion of cloud-based applications.
These two forces are brought together and empowered by connectivity, especially mobile connectivity. With 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) looming on the horizon, these trends are set to accelerate dramatically.
Every aspect of the world we live in is being profoundly changed by these forces. In the years to come, we will live in smart cities, travel to work across intelligent and autonomous transport systems, pass through smart borders, maintain our health and well-being through wearable technology, and live in a much greener and safer environment thanks to smart agriculture and fishing, aviation, and merchant marine activities.
To support and enable this exciting new world, rich, ubiquitous, and highly reliable connectivity will be essential; indeed, the negative impact on the human potential of being without such connectivity will become so fundamental that connectivity will come to be seen as a basic human right.
Conversely, with connectivity the digital society becomes a truly global phenomenon, binding our planet together for mutual benefit.
Yet today, more than 4 billion humans live their lives without access to the internet: this digital divide is one of the big challenges of our age.
In this context, the emergence of next-generation space-based capabilities offers a truly exciting potential to support, enable, and extend this digital society.
We are living through a golden age of space-based innovation, at a time when such innovation has never been more important for human development.
The delivery from space of ubiquitous, highly reliable, and cost-effective connectivity, broadcast services, Earth observation capabilities, and precision location services offers us the chance not only to close the global digital divide in the developing world but also to enhance the emerging digital society in the developed world.
The satellite industry’s unique capabilities will extend the digital society into remote areas, onto the seas and into the skies, and ensure absolute security and reliability of the networks that will increasingly run our world in the twenty-first century.
In the 5G context, this means that space-based capabilities will become a key component of 5G deployments: a vital contributor to heterogeneous networks that co-opt many different complementary technologies to deliver on the promise of 5G to the society that it intends to serve.
As such, this book offers an important new perspective, postulating the need for regulators, standard-setting bodies, and market participants to come together to support the inclusion of space-based capabilities into the 5G firmament, indeed, as an essential driver of the future success of 5G networks globally. I commend this important work to readers.
