2G/2.5G/3G... Evolution to 4G

?By 2008, some 2 billion people will be using mobile
phones and devices, in many cases to access advanced data services.
Against this backdrop, the need for efficient and effective network
design will be critical to the success of increasingly complex
mobile networks.?

Simon Beresford-Wylie (SVP, Nokia Networks)

With the complexity of the cellular networks increasing day by
day, a deeper understanding of the design and performance of
end-to-end cellular networks is required. Moreover, all the types
of networks from 2G-2.5G-3G seem to co-exist. Fundamentals
Cellular Network Planning and Optimisation covers
end-to-end network planning and optimisation aspects from second
generation GSM to third generation WCDMA networks including GPRS
and EDGE networks. All the sub-systems of the network i.e. radio
network, transmission network and core network have been covered
with focus on both practical and theoretical issues. By bringing
all these concepts under one cover, this book becomes essential
reading for the network design engineers working either with
cellular service vendors or operators, experts/scientists working
on end-to-end issues and undergraduate/post-graduate students.

Key Highlights:

  • Distinctly divided into four parts: 2G (GSM), 2.5G (GPRS &
    EDGE), 3G (WCDMA) and introduction to 4G (OFDM, ALL-IP, WLAN
    Overview) respectively

  • Each part focuses on the radio, transmission and core

  • Concentrates on cellular network planning process and explains
    the underlying principles behind the planning and optimizing of the
    cellular networks.

The text will serve as a handbook for anyone engaged in the
study, design, deployment and business of cellular networks.
