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
Applications to CDMA and Multiple Antenna Systems
Wireless Communications over MIMO Channels: Applications to CDMA and Multiple Antenna Systems covers both, state-of-the-art channel coding concepts and CDMA and multiple antenna systems, rarely found in other books on the subject. Furthermore, an information theoretical analysis of CDMA and SDMA systems more » illuminate ultimate limits and demonstrates the high potential of these concepts. Besides spatial multiplexing, the use of multiple transmit antennas in order to increase the link reliability by diversity concepts (space-time coding) is described. Another focus is the application of error control coding in mobile radio communications Accompanying appendices include: basic derivations, tables of frequently used channel models, chain rules for entropy and information, data processing theorem, basics of linear algebra, Householder reflection and Givens rotation, and the LLL algorithm for lattice reduction. « less
