Why is high performance indoor wireless service needed, and how is it best implemented?
As the challenge of providing better service and higher data speeds and quality for mobile applications intensifies, ensuring adequate in-building and tunnel coverage and capacity is increasingly important. A unique, more » single-source reference on the theoretical and practical knowledge behind indoor and tunnel radio planning, this book provides a detailed overview of mobile networks systems, coverage and capacity solutions with 2G, 3G and 4G cellular system technologies as a backdrop. « less
2G, 3G and Beyond
In this book, the author addresses technologies that are being usedin emerging cellular markets. These include GSM/EGPRS and CDMA which are being deployed at a rapid pace, while technologies suchas UMTS (3G)/ HSPA (3.5G) which have started to find a place inthese high growth markets, are also considered. more » The book examinesother technologies including LTE (3.9G) which have already movedout of research labs into the commercial world. 2G-CDMA is widelyused, while further developments, e.g. CDMA2000 are also findingacceptance in the commercial arena. IMS/Convergence is increasinglypopular all over the world; UMA, which is deployed mostly in NorthAmerica; and DVB which is gaining worldwide popularity, especiallyin South Asia, are all reviewed.
Each chapter discusses a different technology and is structuredinto three parts. The technology is examined at an overview level,first explaining what the technology is and then considering thetechnical features of the technology. The chapter concludes bylooking at the planning/implementation aspects of thetechnology. « less
