By Gerald Christensen on January 20, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This is a great text on GSM, covering the GSM air interface as well as the networking standards such as use of SS7 and GSM MAP.
This book is an excellent complement to another Artech House book, Wireless Intelligent Networking, which covers the mobile IN aspects of GSM, including GSM MAP, INAP, CAMEL, and related applications.

Format: Hardcover
The author presents each of the aspects in concise and precise ways. Undoubtedly, it is readable even to novice of GSM. However, I think the book can improve greatly if pay more attention on (i) Use of MAP layer & (ii) Internetworking between various Mobile systems and services such as signalling in VMS, USSD etc.

This book is pretty good for what it is, I suppose. As it says, it's very heavy on protocols and how each message is formatted throughout the network. It's not meant for a beginner to GSM and only quickly covers some of the network aspects in a general sense.

This book is also getting a little old. GSM is getting phased out in many developed counties as 3G/3.5G are taking over Just be aware of the date on the book, is all I'm saying.
