and Mobile Broadband Second Edition (Wiley 2010) contains not only a technical description of the
different wireless systems available today, but also explains the rationale behind the different mechanisms and implementations; not only the ‘how’ but also the ‘why’. In this way, the advantages and also limitations of each technology become apparent.
Offering a solid introduction to major global wireless standards and comparisons of the different wireless
technologies and their applications, this edition has been updated to provide the latest directions and
activities in 3GPP standardization up to Release 12, and importantly includes a new chapter on Voice
over LTE (VoLTE). There are new sections on Building Blocks of a Voice Centric Device, Building Blocks of a Smart Phone, Fast Dormancy, IMS and High-Speed Downlink Packet Access, and Wi-Fi-Protected Setup.
Other sections have been considerably updated in places reflecting the current state of the technology.
• Describes the different systems based on the standards, their practical implementation and design assumptions, and the performance and capacity of each system in practice is analyzed and explained
• Questions at the end of each chapter and answers on the accompanying website make this book ideal for self-study or as course material
This book follows on from its successful predecessor with an introduction to next generation network technologies, mobile devices, voice and multimedia services and the mobile web 2.0. Giving a sound technical introduction to 3GPP wireless systems, this book explains the decisions taken during standardization of the most popular wireless network standards today, LTE, LTE-Advanced and HSPA+. It discusses how these elements strongly influence each other and how network capabilities, available bandwidth, mobile device capabilities and new application concepts will shape the way we communicate in the future. This Second Edition presents a comprehensive and broad-reaching examination of a fast-moving technology which will be a welcome update for researchers and professionals alike.
Key features:Fully updated and expanded to include new sections including VoLTE, the evolution to 4G, mobile Internet access, LTE-Advanced, Wi-Fi security and backhaul for wireless networks Describes the successful commercialization of Web 2.0 services such as Facebook, and the emergence of app stores, tablets and smartphones Examines the evolution of mobile devices and operating systems, including ARM and x86 architecture and their application to voice-optimized and multimedia devices
Communication Systems for the Mobile Information Society not only contains a technical description of the different wireless systems available today, but also explains the thoughts that are behind the different mechanisms and implementations; not only the 'how' but also the 'why' is in focus. Thus the advantages and also limitations of each technology become apparent.Provides readers with a solid introduction to major global wireless standards and compares the different wireless technologies and their applications Describes the different systems based on the standards, their practical implementation and the design assumptions that were made The performance and capacity of each system in practice is analyzed and explained, accompanied with practical tips on how to discover the functionality of different networks by the readers themselves Questions at the end of each chapter and answers on the accompanying website make this book ideal for self study or as course material Illustrated with many realistic examples of how mobile people can stay in touch with other people, the Internet and their corporate intranet
This book is an essential resource for telecommunication engineers, professionals and computer science and electrical engineering students who want to get a thorough end-to-end understanding of the different technical concepts of the systems on the market today.
Es führt klar und verständlich in die Technik und praktische Umsetzung von GSM, GPRS, UMTS, Wireless LAN und Bluetooth ein. Anhand vieler Beispiele wird fundiertes Wissen vermittelt und aufgezeigt, welche Möglichkeiten und Grenzen die unterschiedlichen Konzepte haben. Durch viele Vergleiche wird deutlich, welche Kombination der Systeme für die unterschiedlichsten Anwendungen jeweils am besten geeignet ist.
Das Buch richtet sich an Studierende der Elektrotechnik und Informatik sowie an IT- und Telekommunikationsingenieure in der Praxis und Weiterbildung.
