Product Description

From the Back Cover

Already the world's leading cellular and PCS standard, frontier-hopping GSM stands poised for a major thrust into the U.S. market-still an alphabet soup of competing (and too often incompatible) products. This detailed guide gives you the knowledge you need to ride the GSM juggernaut. GSM Superphones shows you how to: stay ahead of your competitors on recently released features of second generation and upcoming third generation GSM; take profitable advantage of GSM's "superphone" linkability to other digital products; apply GSM solutions in your network environment; be prepared for new demand with technical and business solutions; be among the first providers to offer hot, new GSM-enabled services. With clear, readable text and a wealth of tantalizing examples and case studies, GSM Superphones makes GSM easy to understand, even if you don't have a technical degree. Light on the math and packed with lists of all major GSM component and network suppliers, a critical overview of technologies and services, and an essential scope-out of the movement of the marketplace, this book is a must-have for anyone in the telecommunications game. "This book provides a broad view of how GSM works and the services it can offer."--Joseph Zachariah, Marketing Manager, Ericsson. "Finally, a book that defines GSM in a way that most people in the industry can understand."--Ron Schaeffer, Director, Platform Product Management, Philips Consumer Communications. "This book does a tremendous job of describing all the key featuers and services used in wireless technology."--Bradley Eubank, Director, Personal Communications Industry Association (PCIS). "It does a great job of explaining many of the varied applications of GSM and how they provide benefits to consumers."--Josh Kiem, Director of Marketing, Motorola.

Format: Hardcover
This is a vanity press book that is poorly written, poorly edited and poorly produced. Each chapter is written by a different author none of whom seem to have bothered to read any of the others. The same information is repeated over and over and over again. There is no consistency in the diagrams some of which are totally incomprehensible. The index is useless.

One of the best overviews of GSM that I've read. Good intro of 3rd Generation also.
