Wireless Communications Evolution to 3G and Beyond
Look to this authoritative resource for a comprehensive treatment of the evolution of wireless communications. You get expert guidance on 3G systems, inter-networking of 3G CDMA, 3G Evolution paths (EV-DO, EV-DV, and HSPA), broadband wireless, 3.5G systems (3G-LTE, EV-DO Rev C, MBWA, and WiMAX), CDMA wireless local loop and wireless LAN, security of wireless networks, deployment management, and market implications of wireless technology for business and consumers.
The book provides you with an in-depth understanding of three different 3G CDMA standards ? CDMA2000, WCDMA, and TD-SCDMA (China?s 3G standard), along with their future evolution paths. Moreover, you find details on the layering architecture and network architecture of these standards. This forward-looking book also provides a plan of action for 4G systems, internetworking between LAN and WAN networks, and the future of two-way broadband wireless communications.
