Product description


“I highly recommend this book to all aspiring wireless technology users, students, and network architects.”  (Computing Reviews, 31 May 2012)

"This comprehensive introductory textbook provides a detailed overview of the six primary technologies for wireless communication in use today." (Booknews, 1 June 2011)

From the Back Cover

A new edition of Wiley's Communication Systems for the Mobile Information Society, from the same author

Wireless systems such as GSM, UMTS, LTE, WiMAX, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth offer possibilities to keep people connected while on the move. In this flood of technology, From GSM to LTE: An Introduction to Mobile Networks and Mobile Broadband enables readers to examine and understand each technology, and how to utilise several different systems for the best results. This book contains not only a technical description of the different wireless systems available today, but also explains the rationale behind the different mechanisms and implementations; not only the 'how' but also the 'why' is focused on. Thus the advantages and also limitations of each technology become apparent.

Offering a solid introduction to major global wireless standards and comparisons of the different wireless technologies and their applications, this new edition has been updated to provide the latest directions and activities in 3GPP standardization reaching up to Release 10, and importantly includes a new chapter on LTE. The new LTE chapter covers aspects such as Mobility Management and Power Optimization, Voice over LTE, and Air Interface and Radio Network.

  • Provides readers with an introduction to major global wireless standards and compares the different wireless technologies and their applications
  • The performance and capacity of each system in practice is analyzed and explained, accompanied with practical tips on how to discover the functionality of different networks
  • Offers approximately 25% new material, which includes a major new chapter on LTE and updates to the existing material including Release 4 BICN in relation to GSM
  • Questions at the end of each chapter and answers on the accompanying website (http://www.wirelessmoves.com) make this book ideal for self study or as course material
