About this title

Synopsis:

Many wireless systems like GSM, GPRS, UMTS, Bluetooth, WLAN or WiMAX offer possibilities to keep people connected while on the move. In this flood of technology and claims that one single resource will serve all our needs, this book seeks to enable readers to examine and understand each technology, and how to utilise several different systems for the best results.

Communication Systems for the Mobile Information Society not only contains a technical description of the different wireless systems available today, but also explains the thoughts that are behind the different mechanisms and implementations; not only the 'how' but also the 'why' is in focus. Thus the advantages and also limitations of each technology become apparent.

  • Provides readers with a solid introduction to major global wireless standards and compares the different wireless technologies and their applications
  • Describes the different systems based on the standards, their practical implementation and the design assumptions that were made
  • The performance and capacity of each system in practice is analyzed and explained, accompanied with practical tips on how to discover the functionality of different networks by the readers themselves
  • Questions at the end of each chapter and answers on the accompanying website make this book ideal for self study or as course material
  • Illustrated with many realistic examples of how mobile people can stay in touch with other people, the Internet and their corporate intranet

This book is an essential resource for telecommunication engineers, professionals and computer science and electrical engineering students who want to get a thorough end-to-end understanding of the different technical concepts of the systems on the market today.
