From the reviews:
"The topics of this book are covered in a relatively basic manner in order to address the trends and advanced developments in wireless technologies. … we can say that this interesting book provides detailed information and backgrounds of future developments and advanced topics of 3G mobile communication systems from the system protocol to the implementation technologies. This book can be used as a reference both for engineers involved in wireless communications and the other communication specialists … ." (Ing. Jaroslav Veselý, Neural Network World, Vol. 14 (6), 2004)
From the Back Cover
As the first wave of third-generation communication devices arrives, the technological and societal effects are becoming widespread. The ability to communicate via hand-held devices through voice, data, and video raises many challenges and questions. Besides detailed looks at technological issues, from the system protocol to implementation technologies, this book discusses the administrative and industrial aspects of third-generation mobile communications. The authors emphasize existing problems and propose new solutions. They seek to provide the most comprehensive and topical information on 3G mobile communications currently available. The following chapters offer an overview of wireless technology and terminology, protocols for mobility management, the safety of radio-frequency energy, WLAN (wireless local area networks), multiple access schemes, and microwave photonics. Third Generation Communications Systems serves as a stimulating introduction and reference for engineers entering or already working in the field of wireless communications.
