"The successful trial, deployment, operation and troubleshooting of 3G or UMTS infrastructures and applications is the biggest challenge facing today's mobile communications. Network element instability, network element and multi-vendor interoperability, configuration and network planning faults are just a few of the challenges affecting performance and profitability that need to be addressed. This book is an invaluable guide to resolving such problems. A cutting-edge, comprehensive approach to the standards, network architecture, objectives and functions of the various UMTS interfaces and protocols, backed up by real-world examples gleaned from the latest worldwide research." The unified comprehensive approach will appeal to engineers, technicians, network operators, integrators and systems suppliers who need to understand and analyze the message flows on the line interfaces to install, trial, test, operate, optimize or troubleshoot UMTS networks. It will also be an invaluable resource for postgraduates on telecommunications courses, especially those with a focus on signal analysis.
