and Mobile Broadband Second Edition (Wiley 2010) containsnot only a technical description of the
different wireless systems available today, but also explains therationale behind the different mechanisms and implementations; notonly the ‘how’ but also the ‘why’. In thisway, the advantages and also limitations of each technology becomeapparent.
Offering a solid introduction to major global wireless standardsand comparisons of the different wireless
technologies and their applications, this edition has been updatedto provide the latest directions and
activities in 3GPP standardization up to Release 12, andimportantly includes a new chapter on Voice
over LTE (VoLTE). There are new sections on Building Blocks of aVoice Centric Device, Building Blocks of a Smart Phone, FastDormancy, IMS and High-Speed Downlink Packet Access, andWi-Fi-Protected Setup.
Other sections have been considerably updated in placesreflecting the current state of the technology.
• Describes the different systems based on thestandards, their practical implementation and design assumptions,and the performance and capacity of each system in practice isanalyzed and explained
• Questions at the end of each chapter and answers onthe accompanying website make this book ideal for self-study or ascourse material
This book follows on from its successful predecessor with anintroduction to next generation network technologies, mobiledevices, voice and multimedia services and the mobile web2.0. Giving a sound technical introduction to 3GPP wirelesssystems, this book explains the decisions taken duringstandardization of the most popular wireless network standardstoday, LTE, LTE-Advanced and HSPA+. It discusses how theseelements strongly influence each other and how networkcapabilities, available bandwidth, mobile device capabilities andnew application concepts will shape the way we communicate in thefuture. This Second Edition presents a comprehensive andbroad-reaching examination of a fast-moving technology which willbe a welcome update for researchers and professionalsalike.
Key features:Fully updated and expanded to include new sections includingVoLTE, the evolution to 4G, mobile Internet access, LTE-Advanced,Wi-Fi security and backhaul for wireless networksDescribes the successful commercialization of Web 2.0 servicessuch as Facebook, and the emergence of app stores, tablets andsmartphonesExamines the evolution of mobile devices and operating systems,including ARM and x86 architecture and their application tovoice-optimized and multimedia devices
Communication Systems for the Mobile Information Societynot only contains a technical description of the different wirelesssystems available today, but also explains the thoughts that arebehind the different mechanisms and implementations; not only the'how' but also the 'why' is in focus.

This book is an essential resource for telecommunicationengineers, professionals and computer science and electricalengineering students who want to get a thorough end-to-endunderstanding of the different technical concepts of the systems onthe 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.
