Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors provided an insightful discussion into a wealth of service possibilities that could be delivered by UMTS. This will potentially offer significant revenue opportunities and bring values to mobile operators and may also enable service enhancement with existing access technologies." (Dr. Stanley Chia, Director, Group R&D - US, Vodafone.)

5.0 out of 5 stars UMTS NETWORKS - Architecture, Mobility and Service August 30, 2001
Format:Hardcover
This book is up to my expectations. Most of the books on 3G overemphasize the radio access part and underemphasize the other aspects like UMTS Terminal, Core Networks, Interfacing with External Networks, Services, Appilcations etc., in their coverage. This book deals with all these aspects on equal priority basis. The depth of the details is neither at high level nor at low level. It is just at right level and for people who are eager to enhance their knowledge on 3G, I recommend this book as worth having. The only missing part I felt in this book is OSS systems for 3G.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on UMTS networks. August 14, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This books is currently the best book on UMTS network. It covers
both UTRAN and core network layout very well. The other parts on
theory, WCDMA, services, terminals and protocols are also very
good.The book has been very well organised. There are very many
figures in the book which are clear and helpful to understand.
If you need only one book on UMTS, this is the one. There are
many books in the market on 3G and UMTS but this one is the one
explaining how it works in practical rather than just theory
only. It is European centric also. Warmly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars UMTS Networks January 11, 2002
Format:Hardcover
It's a great book. The chapters explain and develop the UTRAN and CN concepts defined in the 3GPP specifications. Could be great if the chapter dedicated to UMTS Services its more detailed.
