Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building on the success of the first edition UMTS Networks, 2e provides an outstanding description of 3rd generation UMTS mobile networking technology.  It discusses both the core network evolving from the globally successful GSM/GPRS system and the radio access network based on newly emerged Wideband CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) technology.  UMTS networks will provide a platform for mobile packet data and multimedia services bringing new business opportunities to existing and greenfield cellular operators, manufacturers and internet service and content providers.

UMTS networks are introduced in three parts:

1.Explains the overall system design and describes the network elements and functions of a complete UMTS network.  It also illustrates how mobile networks evolve from 2nd generation GSM into first UMTS release and beyond towards full-IP mobility networks

2.Examines the radio access and core network in further detail explaining the functions and services provided to the end users.  This part creates a solid understanding of how user location is managed, security is guaranteed, circuit bearers are established and released, packet traffic flows are maintained and terminal handovers are carried out

3.Increases the reader’ s knowledge by explaining how the previous functions are distributed throughout the network by means of communication protocols providing references to the original UMTS standards published by the 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP)

Written by a group of experts in mobile networking, this practical approach will have wide-ranging appeal to system, software and field engineers and technical managers incellular operator, manufacturer and service provider companies as well as students of telecommunications engineering and computer networks.

Synopsis:

Building on the success of the first edition, UMTS Networks second edition allows readers to continue their journey through UMTS up to the latest 3GPP standardization phase, Release 5. Containing revised, updated and brand new material, it provides a comprehensive view on the UMTS network architecture and its latest developments. Accompanied by numerous illustrations, the practical approach of the book benefits from the authors’ pioneering research and training in this field. 
  • Provides a broad yet detailed overview of the latest worldwide developments in UMTS technology.
  • Includes  brand new sections on the IP Multimedia Subsystem and High Speed Downlink Packet Access according to 3GPP Release 5 specifications.
  • Contains heavily revised sections on the evolution from GSM to UMTS Multi-access, the UMTS Radio Access Network, the UMTS Core Network and services.
  • Includes updated versions on services in the UMTS environment, security in the UMTS environment and UMTS protocols.
  • Illustrates all points with cutting-edge practical examples gleaned from the authors’ research and training at the forefront of UMTS.

The illustrative, hands-on approach will appeal to operators, equipment vendors, systems designers, developers and marketing professionals who require comprehensive, practical information on the latest developments in UMTS. This second edition will also benefit students and researchers in the field of mobile networking.
