Description - Advanced Cellular Network Planning and Optimisation by A. R. Mishra
WCDMA (Wideband Code-Division Multiple Access), is an exciting third-generation (3G) mobile wireless technology that promises much higher data speeds to mobile and portable wireless devices. EDGE (Enhanced Data DSM Environment), a faster version of the Global System for Mobile (GSM) wireless service, is designed to deliver data at rates of up to 384 Kbps and enable the delivery of multimedia and other broadband applications to mobile phone and computer users. This exciting new text provides comprehensive coverage of cellular network planning and optimization, focusing on radio, transmission and core networks and also exploring the current status and future potential of WCDMA. Its strength lies in the equal treatment it accords to GSM, GPRS and EDGE technologies, each of which account for approximately 30 per cent of the overall content. The author's aim is to examine the full range of potential scenarios and problems faced by those who design these types of cellular network and to provide advice and solutions all backed up with real-world examples.
This highly practical guide is rooted in theory to include the necessary background for taking the reader through the planning, implementation and management stages for each type of network Acts as a fundamental, practical resource for those engaged in the design of cellular networks, focusing on radio, transmission and core systems Adopts a broad approach, devoting equal coverage to GSM, GPRS and EDGE Provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of WCDMA technology and emphasizes advances in E2E (end-to-end) network planning Illustrates key points throughout using real-world examples. This book is suitable for new and experienced network planning engineers (radio, transmission and core) and graduates students on mobile communications courses. Also, experts working on integrated systems along with scientists, engineers and professors working in the mobile communications field.

Author Biography - A. R. Mishra
Ajay Ranjan Mishra received his M. Tech in Microwave Electronics from University of Delhi in 1997. Since then, he has been working with Nokia Networks. He has been involved not only in the research and development of network designing and optimization for all three generations of the networks, but also in the deployment of these networks globally. His current interests are issues related to the design and performance of third, fourth and mixed cellular networks. He has several publications to his credit, including most recently "Fundamentals of Network Planning and Optimization for Wireless Communications: 2G, 3G and systems beyond" by Wiley (2003).
