Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

As existing carriers hire additional engineers and new telecommunications companies get underway, there's ever-increasing demand for people who know about Intelligent Network (IN) operations. Wireless Intelligent Networking explains how the IN works (especially in the United States), particularly the network's means of interacting with mobile communications systems. The book was written by working telecoms engineers, and though it is carefully organized (it's usually pretty easy to find a section on the protocol or other mechanism that interests you, for example), it's a little hard to decode on the first pass because of the nature of the subject. Advice to the reader: have specifications documents (relevant ones are listed in the endnotes) on hand as you read so that you can compare two presentations of the same facts and thus understand more quickly.

Discussion on the protocols that come into play during mobile interaction with the IN includes a fantastic level of detail. To cite one example, the different approaches to Calling Name Presentation (CNAP) taken by IS-764 and IS-771 are explored, and each specification is further explained via a chart that details the flow of messages between parties. Similarly excellent documentation appears for all applicable protocols, established and emerging. The business issues associated with wireless IN are also discussed. The material is good, but for a book-length treatment of emerging telecoms technologies and the industry surrounding them, read Telecommunications Convergence. --David Wall

Topics covered:

  • The established and emerging technologies surrounding wireless intelligent networking
  • Radio standards
  • Wireless network standards
  • Third-generation wireless standards
  • General-purpose SS7 signaling protocol
  • Wireless Intelligent Network (WIN)
  • Customized Applications for Mobile Enhanced Logic (CAMEL)
  • Market issues

From the Author

Our goal as authors was to cover a broad range of technical and business information associated with mobile communications, intelligent networks and applications. While other books only address certain technology issues such as standards, Wireless Intelligent Networking covers a variety of technical areas in both GSM and ANSI-41 based networks. Knowing that most people are also interested in applications and technology evolution, we have provided an entire chapter devoted to many IN dependent/related mobile network applications and another chapter devoted to more advanced issues such as the relationship of IN with wireless Internet and the convergence of IN and IP.

Wireless Intelligent Networking provides a strong foundation of core technologies for beginners as well as more technical detail and discussion of key business issues for more advanced readers. Our hope is that you will enjoy reading and derive great benefit from our book. Please let us know as we appreciate reader feedback.

This is a unique book that compares the intelligent networking standards, the ANSI-41 and GSM. It not only provides useful technical information but also covers the issues pertaining to the wireless intelligent market. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in WIN and CAMEL.

Format: Hardcover
Wireless Intelligent Networking is an excellent publication with rare characteristics: easy to read, well organized and extremely efficient in what concerns quantity and quality of information. Technical protocols, market trends, services deployment, integration, among other IN hot issues are thoroughly dissected in WIN. This is definitely an essential tool for anyone in the Telco business, saving time and money in training for beginners and helping experts on a daily basis. A "dot.safe" investment for any company in the industry!

Format: Hardcover
The book succeeds in presenting an inherently complex and multi-disciplinary subject in a clear manner with sufficient references to allow further study as needed.
The book provides a broad view of wireless networking, including financial, market, and technical views. The technical information is well organized and presented from more than one perspective. Rather than presenting volumes of minute details, architectural principals are introduced and illuminated.
This is one of the outstanding technical books that I have ever read. I would highly recommend it to experienced hands in the fields of wireless or wireline voice networks.
I would also recommend it to beginners with the following cavaet: this book plumbs some fairly deep waters, and does not delve too deeply into the related fields that are the building blocks of Wireless Intellegent Networking. SS7, AIN, PSTN architecture, and mobility management are all presented, but having some previous background (or somebody handy who can fill in details) would be a big help.

Format: Hardcover
The telecommunications industry needs a lot of standards and detailed information for true inter-operability. So, no book is going to be perfect in its coverage of the material - there is simply too much information.

Having said that, I find this book to be an excellent way to understand the issues associated with WIN. It provides the basis for further study and points people in the right direction for increasing their knowledge.

I use this book as a basic reference and recommend it highly. You will not go wrong reading this book - whether you are a wireless telecom professional (which I am) or not.
