5G and Beyond Wireless Networks: Technology, Network Deployments, and Materials for Antenna Design offers a comprehensive overview of 5G and beyond 5G wireless networks along with emerging technologies that support the design and development of wireless networks. It also includes discussions on various materials used for practical antenna design which are suitable for 5G, beyond 5G applications, and cell-free massive MIMO systems.

The book discusses the latest techniques used in 5G and beyond 5G (B5G) communication, such as non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), device-to-device (D2D) communication, 6G ultra-dense O-RAN, rate-splitting multiple access (RSMA), simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT), massive multiple input multiple output (mMIMO), and cell-free massive MIMO systems, which are explained in detail for 5G and beyond cellular networks. The description of NOMA and their benefit for 5G and beyond networks is also addressed along with D2D communication for next generation cellular networks. RSMA technique is also explained for 6G communication. Detailed descriptions for the design and development of 5G and beyond networks over various techniques are included. The materials specification to design antenna for 5G application are also given.

The role of metalens in designing effective antennas and material specifications for 5G applications is explained in this book. Apart from the above emerging topics, this book also gives ideas about intelligent communication, Internet of Multimedia Things (IOMT), millimeter-wave MIMO-UFMC, and fog computing cloud networks. The last chapter gives details about the legal frameworks for 5G technology for responsible and sustainable deployment. Overall, this book may benefit network design engineers and researchers working in the area of next generation cellular networks.

The contents of this book will be helpful for young researchers and master students, and network design engineers who are working in the area of next generation cellular networks.
