GPRS UNPACKED, IRONED OUT, AND DELIVERED IN PLAIN ENGLISH


Industry insiders who pioneered some of the earliest General Packet Radio Service networks and applications speak out on markets, the GPRS business case, their implementation experience, and operational obstacles for providers and operators to hurdle now.


Edited in clear, jargon-suppressed style by John Hoffman, Senior Consulting Director of the GSM Association, GPRS Demystified culls insightful contributions from companies in the mobile data industry who have been there, done that and are prepared to do it again. Profit from their experience as they tell you what you need to know about GPRS in real-world context, including:



* The next step toward 3G networks, and how to build robust services within it

* GPRS in perspective--viewpoints on competition, costs, interoperability, pluses, minuses, and technology lifespan

* Lessons learned from WAP and other forebears

* Roaming state-of-the-art and trends

* Functionality of first generation terminals

* How GPRS will change the basic business practices of GSM operators

* And much more


For anyone who wants a thoughtful way to get up to speed on the services that are paving the way for next generation networking, GPRS Demystified is a MUST read.
