Description:

Written by leading experts in the field, the first edition of WCDMA for UMTS quickly became established as the best-selling and highly respected book on the air interface of 3G cellular systems. Fully revised and updated, the fifth edition includes new chapters covering HSPA multi-carrier evolution, and TD-SCDMA. The existing chapters have been updated to cover the most recent features of HSPA evolution, UMTS services, the latest MBMS developments and 3 GPP future plans. The new edition provides practical understanding of WCDMA, High speed downlink packet access (HSDPA), High speed uplink packet access (HSUPA) and HSPA evolution (HSPA+), before moving on to consider HSPA Releases.WCDMA for UMTS, Fifth Edition presents the latest developments in the UMTS business, providing a practical approach accessible to operators, network and terminal manufacturers, service providers, university students and frequency regulators.
