Overview

CDMA, GSM, TDMA and PCS Satellite - all in one complete guidebook!

Four digital technologies -- CDMA, GSM, TDMA and PCS Satellite -- will dominate the marketplace for second-generation mobile and wireless networks. In this book, internationally respected telecommunications expert Uyless Black examines and compares all four, from the standpoint of the communications engineer and manager. You'll learn how each technology seeks to deliver improved clarity, reliability and speed. You'll also review every critical issue faced by engineers, network managers, and others involved in deploying these systems:

  • Engineering, architectural and real-world implementation challenges.
  • Capacity.
  • Data operations.
  • Roaming and security.
  • Interfaces, standards, and signaling systems.
  • Frequencies and frequency mapping.

Black clarifies the often-confusing terminology surrounding digital cellular and wireless services, and reviews the key differences between first- and second-generation networks. He presents detailed, up-to-the-minute coverage of the new GSM standard for North America; introduces new high-performance vocoders for digitizing and compressing voice signals; compares leading approaches to deploying Wireless Local Loop (WLL) technology; and previews third-generation mobile systems already on the horizon. Whatever your role in implementing wireless technology, you'll refer to this book constantly, for years to come.
