SAE is the core network that supports the radio access technologies for Long Term Evolution (LTE), the next key stage in the development of the UMTS network to provide mobile broadband. It is intended to provide the core network architecture for the telecommunications industry through to the 2020s. Our successful book by Dahlman: 3G Evolution covers the radio access technologies and has a brief overview of SAE. However, as telecommunications equipment suppliers and network providers develop LTE products and networks, they will also need a detailed understanding of the role of SAE and its standards.

This book provides a clear, concise and complete introduction to System Architecture Evolution (SAE) and the potential services and operational scenarios that it enables. After providing an insightful overview of SAE’s historical development which explains why SAE was needed, the book gives detailed explanations of the key concepts as an introduction. Detailed technical descriptions of SAE follow, and which include detailed functional descriptions of the different components of SAE, protocols, network entities and procedures. Descriptions of SAE deployment scenarios show how the functions described within SAE are placed within a live network context, while a description of the services that are predicted to be used show what SAE as a core network can enable.

• Clear, concise and comprehensive view of SAE

• Written by established experts in the SAE standardisation process, all of whom have extensive experience and understanding of its goals, history and vision of SAE

• Covers potential service and operator scenarios for the architecture in question; it therefore provides more than just an precis of SAE specifications
