Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
The second edition of WCDMA for UMTS delivers the goods for anyone already well versed in the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS). This book is not a read for the curious or even for the serious student just undertaking the study of basic third generation (3G) multimedia communications design and operation concepts related to UMTS or any Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) system (IS-95, CDMA 2000). It's a very serious refresher designed to provide state-of-the-art engineering concepts for individuals immersed in development and deployment of 3G communications systems, including service providers, manufacturers, and frequency regulators.

Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) is discussed as the premier third-generation air interface in the world. The authors begin with an excellent introduction to 3G air interfaces, spectrum allocation, time schedule, and the main differences from second-generation (2G) air interfaces. Chapter 2 shows you hands-on examples of how to use UMTS applications and concept phones. Next, the authors introduce the background and principles of the WCDMA air interface, spreading, Rake receiver, power control, handovers, global harmonization process, and standardization. The remaining pages provide a treasure chest of very useful information on the WCDMA standard and its performance.

The need for establishing standards as a method of delivering universal systems that work together seamlessly has been well established in many areas of technology. Wireless communications is no exception. This book does an outstanding job of documenting and elucidating the relevant standards. John Vacca

John Vacca, the former computer security official (CSO) for NASA's space station program (Freedom), has written 38 books about advanced storage, computer security, and aerospace technology.

From The Critics
Describes the wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) third generation air interface for the universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS). The 14 chapters outline the protocols and layers of the WCDMA standard, and present algorithms for radio resource management and packet scheduling. The second edition adds a chapter on high speed downlink packet access. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
