GSM, cdmaOne and 3G Systems provides the reader with a comprehensive and unique description of the two leading second generation cellular radio systems: the global system for mobile communication (GSM) and cmdaOne. This novel approach encompasses a two-chapter format for both systems. One chapter follows a descriptive approach of a system, whilst the second chapter takes on an analytical stance. This imaginative strategy enables readers to by-pass the analysis if they so wish and concentrate on system descriptions. The focus then moves towards the forthcoming third generation (3G) cellular systems. Such a creative approach will have wide-ranging appeal to a large audience including practising engineers in the mobile radio industry, academics and the research and development community.

- Includes an introductory chapter to provide the necessary background to cellular radio, in particular TDMA and CDMA
- Presents GSM and cdmaOne through a detailed description of the radio interface, as well as an in-depth mathematical analysis
- Discusses GSM Phase 2+ enhancements, such as GPRS and EDGE
- Features a comprehensive description of UMTS
- Addresses the evolution of cdmaOne to cdma2000

Evolution of GSM and cdmaOne to 3G Systems.


...Providing a detailed description and analysis of the global second generation (2G) mobile radio systems: the Global System of Mobile Communications (GSM) and cdmaOne, this volume examines how these two systems will evolve into the third generation (3G) with their requirement to support multimedia mobile radio communications.

The principle objectives of this book are to present to the reader detailed descriptions of the basic GSM and cdmaOne systems, mainly from the radio interface point of view; as well as accompanying analyses.

GSM was deployed before cdmaOne and is the market leader, entrenched in many parts of the world. Its success is due to numerous factors: its advanced backbone network, the introduction of subscriber identity modules (SIMs) that decoupled handsets from subscribers, its good security system, the low cost equipment due to open (i.e. public) interfaces, the relentless programme of evolution that has yielded substantial gains in spectral efficiency compared with the basic GSM system, and so on.

cdmaOne started as a radio interface. It was a bold step to use CDMA at a time when few thought CDMA could work in a cellular environment. But it did so, acquiring the necessary backbone network, and became a global standard offering tough competition to GSM. It is also worthy of note that Europe, which had designed and promoted GSM, has opted for wideband CDMA for its third generation (3G) networks.

The first chapter is designed to provide background material on TDMA, CDMA and cellular radio networks. Chapter 2 describes the basic GSM system and Chapter 3 provides an analysis of the performance of GSM networks. The same method of system description followed by a chapter dedicated to mathematical analysis is applied for cdmaOne in Chapters 4 and 5, respectively. The final chapter endeavours to describe how GSM is evolving to provide higher bit rate circuit-switched channels and packet transmissions that will have an ability to provide a range of multimedia services. The Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) is then described, followed by a discussion of the evolution of cdmaOne to cdma2000. Both UMTS and cdma2000 are 3G systems....
