Overview

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 of 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 on practical and theoretical issues. By bringing all these concepts under one cover, this books becomes an 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 of the book are:

  • Distinctly divided into four parts with each part 2G (GSM), 2.5G (GPRS & EDGE), 3G (WCDMA) and introduction 4G (OFDM, ALL-IP, WLAN Overview) respectively
  • Each part focuses on the radio, transmission and core networks.
  • Not only does on cellular network planning process, also explains the underlying principles behind the planning and optimising the cellular networks.
Written by leading experts in the field, and endorsed with forewords from Anthony Crane, Vice President, Delivery & Maintenance Services, Nokia Networks and Klaus Goerke, Director, Operational Solutions, Nokia Networks, the text will serve as a handbook for anyone engaged in the study, design, deployment and business of cellular Networks.
