Overview

This practical book is for anyone who needs to understand the solutions that allow multimedia communications between mobile networks and fixed wireless communications. It presents the fundamentals of individual fixed and mobile wireless technologies in terms of architectures, standards, management capabilities and quality of service issues, is essential reading. Adopting the term Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC), an analysis of the interworking between cellular networks and a variety of wireless technologies, such as WLAN, WiMAX, RFID and UWB, is provided. An in-depth study of the convergent solutions offered by UMA and IMS is also given, together with up-to-date information about products, vendors and current service offerings. You’ll also find criteria for analyzing and evaluating fixed-mobile convergent products and services, and numerous diagrams and feature/component tables. This practical text is ideal for engineers and practitioners in the field of telecommunications and wireless communications, as well as graduate students of electrical and computer engineering.
