Developed out of a successful professional engineering course, this practical handbook provides a comprehensive explanation of the Wideband CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) air interface of third generation UMTS cellular systems. The book addresses all aspects of the design of the WCDMA radio interface from the lower layers (RF and baseband processing) to the upper layers of the protocol architecture (non-access stratum and RRC layers). This is an ideal course book and reference for students and professional engineers.
A revised introduction to third generation (3G) mobile communication system principles, concepts and applications, without the use of advanced mathematics. This second edition features a treatment of potential 3G applications and descriptions of emerging technologies.

The merging of voice and data on a single network opens powerful new possibilities in communications. Only a fundamental understanding of both technologies will ensure you are equipped to maximise their full potential. Convergence Technologies for 3G Networks describes the evolution from cellular to a converged network that integrates traditional telecommunications and the technology of the Internet. In particular, the authors address the application of both IP and ATM technologies to a cellular environment, including IP telephony protocols, the use of ATM/AAL2 and the new AAL2 signalling protocol for voice/multimedia and data transport as well as the future of the UMTS network in UMTS Release 5/6 All-IP architecture. Convergence Technologies for 3G Networks: Explains the operation and integration of GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, CDMA2000, IP, and ATM. Provides practical examples of 3G connection scenarios. Describes signalling flows and protocol stacks. Covers IP and ATM as used in a 3G context. Addresses issues of QoS and real-time application support. Includes IP/SS7 internetworking and IP softswitching. Outlines the architecture of the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) for UMTS. Convergence Technologies for 3G Networks is suited for professionals from the telecommunications, data communications and computer networking industries..
