UMTS by Bernhard H. Walke

Book Description

UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) is the third generation telecommunications system based on WCDMA. WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) is the radio interface for UMTS. WCDMA is characterised by use of a wider band than CDMA. It has additional advantages of high transfer rate, and increased system capacity and communication quality by statistical multiplexing, etc. WCDMA efficiently utilises the radio spectrum to provide a maximum data rate of 2 Mbit/s. UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) will offer a consistent set of services to mobile computer and phone users no matter where they are located in the world. Based on the GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) communication standard, UMTS, endorsed by major standards bodies and manufacturers, is the planned standard for mobile users around the world by 2002. Todaya s cellular telephone systems are mainly circuit--switched, with connections always dependent on circuit availability. Packet--switched connection, using the Internet Protocol (IP), means that a virtual connection is always available to any other end point in the network. It will also make it possible to provide new services, such as alternative billing methods (pay--per--bit, pay--per--session, flat rate, asymmetric bandwidth, and others). The higher bandwidth of UMTS also promises new services, such as video conferencing and promises to realise the Virtual Home Environment (VHE) in which a roaming user can have the same services to which the user is accustomed when at home or in the office, through a combination of transparent terrestrial and satellite connections. aeo Provides an introduction to cellular networks and digital communications aeo Covers the air interface, radio access network and core network aeo Explains the Release a 99 specifications clearly and effectively aeo Discusses UMTS services and future services beyond 3G aeo Features numerous problems and solutions in order to aid understanding Ideal for Academics and students on telecommunications, electronics and computer science courses, research and development engineers working in mobile/wireless communications and Cellular operators and technical consultants.

Spectrum Requirement Planning in Wireless Communications by Bernhard H. Walke Spectrum Requirement Planning in Wireless Communications, Hardback (April 2008)

Helps you learn how the spectrum requirement is calculated for real systems that prevail worldwide. This book provides the reader with information on how the spectrum requirement is calculated for real systems that prevail worldwide. It contains useful tables and examples such as flowchart of the methodology.

IEEE 802 Wireless Systems by Bernhard H. Walke IEEE 802 Wireless Systems, Hardback (November 2006)

This well written work collates state-of-the-art information on IEEE 802 wireless systems, which is intended to provide the necessary theoretical foundation for performance evaluation. Such a comprehensive comparative treatment of all the key standards has not previously been attempted and this is therefore a valuable resource.
