Provides a technical system overview of 3G evolved networks which cannot be found in standard documents and other public material, opening the door to SAE/LTE (System Architecture Evolution / Long Term Evolution). The intention is not to rephrase the standard documents (as this may be seen in some publications) but rather to present the 3G evolution in a pragmatic way, providing links between the different pieces and trying to be as concrete as possible. A key element is the focus on inheritance and migration from 2G/3G systems towards "evolved 3G", rather than describing the new system as standing alone, so that the reader can understand the foundations and identify what the transition…
