CDMA2000 Evolution: Concepts and Design Principles provides an in-depth and insightful presentation of CDMA2000 technology from the fundamental concepts, architectures and protocols to the network engineering and planning principles. This book includes comprehensive and up to date information about the IS2000 1x Releases A through D, including 1xEV-DV, as well as 1xEV-DO or IS856 Revisions 0 and A standards. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on conceptual understanding of key techniques and protocols and their evolution from simpler legacy systems to the more advanced revisions recently made to these standards. Other areas of focus include network architecture, QoS, radio network performance and dimensioning as well as comparison with other 2.5G/3G systems. Examples, graphics and diagrams all serve to simplify the learning process.
