Organized into three major sections—applications, technologies, and security—this material fully covers various location-based applications and the impact they will have on the future.

Requirements for next generation networks (NGNs) are fueling an architectural evolution. Service providers are obliged to give users access to content anytime, anyhow, anywhere, on any device. This requires a converged infrastructure in which users across multiple domains can be served through a single unified domain and all network services and business units can be consolidated on a single IP infrastructure.

The Fixed Mobile Convergence Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the design, implementation, and management of converged cellular/WiFi wireless networks. This book discusses how FMC is transforming technologies as multimedia ceases to be passively consumed and unidirectional—and becomes increasingly mobile, personalized and interactive. This book also describes ways to ensure that networks remain cost-effective, scalable, reliable, and secure in the face of constant technological evolution.

This material encapsulates the state of FMC, covering everything from basic concepts to research-grade material and future directions. Addressing a broad range of topics, the handbook consists of 16 chapters authored by 44 experts from around the world. Subjects include:
