Description:

Do you want your wireless network to be profitable? Wireless operators will find this practical, hands-on guide to network deployment invaluable. Based on their own extensive experience, the authors describe an end-to-end network planning process to deliver the guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS) that enables today's wireless IP services such as VoIP, WWW and streaming video. With a focus on practical design, comprehensive examples are provided for GSM/GPRS/EDGE UMTS/HSDPA OFDM Mesh Wifi Packet backhaul Topics addressed include: capacity/peak data rates, service latency link budgets lifecycle costs network optimisation The trade-off between enhanced user experience and operator cost is explored in the context of an enhanced business model. Suitable for radio and core network planners, designers, optimizers, and business development staff at operators and network equipment manufacturers, the book's extensive references also make it a useful resource for graduate and postgraduate students.
