商品描述

The merging of voice and data on a single network opens powerful new possibilities in communications. Only a fundamental understanding of both technologies will ensure you are equipped to maximise their full potential.

Convergence Technologies for 3G Networks describes the evolution from cellular to a converged network that integrates traditional telecommunications and the technology of the Internet. In particular, the authors address the application of both IP and ATM technologies to a cellular environment, including IP telephony protocols, the use of ATM/AAL2 and the new AAL2 signalling protocol for voice/multimedia and data transport as well as the future of the UMTS network in UMTS Release 5/6 All-IP architecture.

Convergence Technologies for 3G Networks:

  • Explains the operation and integration of GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, CDMA2000, IP, and ATM.
  • Provides practical examples of 3G connection scenarios.
  • Uses live captures from 3G networks.
  • Describes signalling flows and protocol stacks.
  • Covers IP and ATM as used in a 3G context.
  • Addresses issues of QoS and real-time application support.
  • Includes IP/SS7 internetworking and IP softswitching.
  • Discusses the use of Voice over IP and SIP in UMTS.
  • Outlines the architecture of the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) for UMTS.

This highly accessible reference is suited for professionals from the telecommunications, data communications and computer networking industries.
