Fundamentals of Cellular Network Planning and Optimisation

With the complexity of the cellular networks increasing day by day, a deeper understanding of the design and performance of end-to-end cellular networks is required. Moreover, all the types of networks from 2G-2.5G-3G seem to co-exist. Fundamentals of Cellular Network Planning and Optimisation covers end-to-end network planning and optimisation aspects from second generation GSM to third generation WCDMA networks including GPRS and EDGE networks. All the sub-systems of the network i.e. radio network, transmission network and core network have been covered with focus on both practical and theoretical issues. By bringing all these concepts under one cover, this book becomes essential reading for the network design engineers working either with cellular service vendors or operators, experts/scientists working on end-to-end issues and undergraduate/post-graduate students.


Advanced Cellular Network Planning and Optimisation

A highly practical guide rooted in theory to include the necessary background for taking the reader through the planning, implementation and management stages for each type of cellular network. Present day cellular networks are a mixture of the technologies like GSM, EGPRS and WCDMA.


Cellular Technologies for Emerging Markets

In this book, the author addresses technologies that are being usedin emerging cellular markets. These include GSM/EGPRS and CDMA which are being deployed at a rapid pace, while technologies suchas UMTS (3G)/ HSPA (3.5G) which have started to find a place inthese high growth markets, are also considered. The book examinesother technologies including LTE (3.9G) which have already movedout of research labs into the commercial world. 2G-CDMA is widelyused, while further developments, e.g. CDMA2000 are also findingacceptance in the commercial arena. IMS/Convergence is increasinglypopular all over the world; UMA, which is deployed mostly in NorthAmerica; and DVB which is gaining worldwide popularity, especiallyin South Asia, are all reviewed.
