Publisher: Springer

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Hardcover

Description:

Hardcover. 361 pages. Dimensions: 9.5in. x 6.6in. x 1.1in.The Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) is undoubtedly the most successful second generation digital mobile radio system. One of the key factors for this exceptional performance is the constant evolution of the GSM systems and its derivatives DCS-1800 and PCS-1900. The objective of the book is to address new concepts in the GSM system, dealing with both standardised features as well as theoretically and technologically feasible improvements, which contribute to evolutionary changes in general. Dynamic evolution of GSM presents a platform for the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) introduction and major trends in UMTS development will be addressed in this book, in particular progress towards new radio interface. The book is the collection of individual contributions from a number of authors. The intention of the editors was to gather the most prominent specialist in the GSM area. Ongoing efforts in GSM standardisation are focused on Phase 2 with items planned to be added gradually on demand. Being mostly independent of each other, each of them could be introduced with little impact on the rest of the system. Speech remains the prime service of cellular systems with ongoing work on spectral efficiency taking into account the trade-off between cost of the system and transmission quality. Most notable result from novel speech service implementations is the introduction of new Enhanced Full Rate (EFR) speech coder. International railway organisation (Union Internationale des Chemins de Fer - UIC) has influenced the development of Advanced Speech Call Items (ASCI). This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780792383512

Synopsis: The GSM system is undoubtedly the most successful second-generation digital mobile radio system. One of the key factors for this exceptional performance is the constant evolution of the GSM system and its derivatives. GSM: Evolution towards 3rd generation systems addresses new concepts in the GSM system, dealing both with standardized features as well as with theoretically and technologically feasible improvements which contribute to evolutionary changes in general.
Ongoing efforts in GSM standardization are focused on Phase 2+ with gradual additions for a fast and modular evolution. Speech remains the prime service of cellular systems, with ongoing work on spectral efficiency taking into account the tradeoff between cost of the system and transmission quality. Most of the notable results from novel speech service implementations are addressed herein such as new EFR speech codec and Advanced Speech Cell Items (ASCI). Data capability in Phase 2+ has been covered under General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and High-Speed Circuit Switched Data (HCSD) work items. Initiatives under CAMEL cover intelligent networking (IN) within the GSM framework.
Dual mode operation in GSM includes not only dual-band solutions but also inter-networking with other systems like DECT or satellite systems. Numerous specific wireless applications such as inbuilding communications, WLL, etc., have also been developed based on GSM. To support the required changes a number of issues have to be solved in the radio part of the system. Deployment of adaptive antenna arrays for enhanced quality, interference suppression techniques and slow frequency hopping are among the techniques presented in the GSM framework.
Dynamic evolution of GSM presents a platform for the introduction of UMTS. Presently, efforts are directed towards the standardization of the UMTS air interface in ETSI. Major trends in progress towards new radio interfaces are outlined including contributions from pan-European projects such as ATDMA, which was carried out under the RACE II framework, and the ACTS project AC090 FRAMES.
GSM: Evolution towards 3rd generation systems comprises a collection of specially written contributions from GSM specialists. The information presented is essential reading for all researchers, engineers and managers working on GSM and third generation wireless systems. This book covers the most important advances in GSM that will have lasting impact on the system influencing third generation wireless systems.
