Overview

Here is the most comprehensive reference available on GSM applications and services that's intended to build on — not replace — the basic technical information in the authors' original bestseller, An Introduction to GSM.

The book provides a close-up look at this hot technology, offers in-depth discussions of the features and services available through GSM, and includes new and more in-depth coverage of applications and implementations of the GSM standard. It also explains how GSM has succeeded in becoming the major digital wireless standard — and addresses both past and future standardization, regulation, and development issues.

The book uses non-technical language and unique technical implementation and performance figures to help you:

• Learn how intelligent mobile networks function — and what benefits they provide to users
• Compare PCS to GSM and other competing digital radio systems
• Gain a thorough understanding of state-of-the-art mobile communications services
• Take a look at the technology and techniques used in PCS handsets

The book is an up-to-date, single-source guide for engineers, technical managers, and consultants at communications manufacturing and network operating sites who need a technical background on services, features, and implementation — or information on the adoption of GSM and competitive technologies. It is also a valuable source for marketing and sales professionals, university lecturers, and post-graduate students who need to acquire background knowledge of GSM technology or services.
