GPRS is now an established technology allowing packet-data access to the internet and intranets and it is expected that consumer demand for the service will continue to increase, especially when the higher data rates are made available.

The GPRS technology is also carried forward to the 3G systems and it is vital that engineers working in the GSM/3G engineering fields understand the GPRS technology.

The specifications are the source for the technology, but in general the specifications provide exactly that - specifications and not explanations! With this in mind, GPRS in Practice is written in a simple manner using simple language allowing the reader to fully understand the complex GPRS concepts and how the GPRS interface works.

  • Provides an invaluable companion to the specifications as it supplies explanations of the technicalities and cross-references the specifications within a practical context
  • Presents explanations of paging, cell reselection, temporary block flow, multislot classes and many other concepts not available elsewhere
  • Explains the underlying concepts of the GPRS system with the use of excellent diagrams so that in many cases the concepts are understandable from the diagrams alone without the accompanying text

By casting light upon the specifications with alternative simplified explanations, engineers, technical managers, project leaders and technicians will find this highly readable approach extremely helpful and an essential purchase!
