By the Editors of the highly successful WCDMA for UMTS, this new book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date reference to High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) technologies for WCDMA. High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) are standardized as part of 3GPP Releases 5 and 6.  HSPA, the term for both HSDPA and HSUPA, is designed on top of Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA), the main air interface used for third generation mobile communication systems globally.

This new volume offers in-depth descriptions and explanations of 3GPP standards, and expected performance based on simulations and measurements. The text also discusses the impact of HSDPA and HSUPA on network dimensioning and network algorithms, covers end-to-end performance, and includes descriptions on HSPA terminal radio frequency requirements.

  •  Explains 3GPP HSDPA and HSUPA standard with illustrations
  •  Describes the co-existence of WCDMA and HSPA
  •  Presents HSPA network algorithms
  •  Analyses HSPA data rates, coverage and capacity with simulations and network measurements
  •  Illustrates end-to-end application performance with HSPA radio networks
  •  Introduces HSPA terminal radio frequency (RF) requirements

Written by leading experts in the field, this advanced guide will appeal to system designers, network R&D experts, mobile chip designers, network planners, application developers and technical managers with operators and vendors. It will also be a useful resource for postgraduate students and researchers in related areas.
