book "LTE and the Evolution to 4G Wireless: Design and Measurement Challenges,"
adding LTE-Advanced and more to its in-depth examination of the 3GPP LTE
cellular technology and the challenges it poses to engineering design and test
teams. Agilent introduced the new edition at Mobile World Congress, Feb. 25, in
Barcelona, Spain. 

With more than 40 authors and now at 648 pages, this edition (published by

physical and upper layer signaling, MIMO and advanced performance testing on
receivers and transmitters. It covers new material on functional testing and the
latest on RF and signaling conformance testing. It also has a new section on
non-signaling manufacturing test. 

Moray Rumney, the technical editor, joined Hewlett-Packard/Agilent Technologies
in 1984, after completing a bachelor`s degree in electronics from Edinburgh`s
Heriot-Watt University. Rumney joined the European Telecommunications Standards
Institute in 1991 and 3GPP in 1999, where he was a significant contributor to
the development of type approval tests for GSM and UMTS. He currently represents
Agilent at 3GPP RAN WG4, where the air interface for HSPA+ and LTE-Advanced is
being developed. Rumney`s current focus is in MIMO over-the-air test methods.
