Principles and Applications of GSM
The first complete guide to designing GSM wireless systems!
GSM and its derivatives have become the world's #1 wireless technology, enabling users to roam across most of Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, East Asia, and even much of the U.S. -- all with one number and one bill. Principles & Applications of GSM is the first complete technical guide to this remarkable technology. Best-selling wireless experts Vijay K. Garg and J.E. Wilkes begin by introducing basic principles that apply to any wireless technology. Next, they present GSM in depth, covering everything you need to know to design and implement a GSM system, including: GSM architecture. Radio link operations: APC, DTX, SFH, channel borrowing, and smart antennae. Logical channel structure and framing. Speech coding and Linear-Prediction based Analysis-by-Synthesis (LPAS). Physical, data link, and network layers. Message flows among mobile stations, base stations, MSCs, HLRs and VLRs.
Garg and Wilkes systematically address planning and sizing GSM wireless systems, managing GSM networks via TMN, and working with SS7 -- key issues often ignored in GSM texts. You'll find detailed coverage of modulation, along with valuable Matlab source files on diskette. The book's practical traffic engineering coverage is supplemented by powerful WErlangB Windows software for analyzing loads and blocking. There are detailed chapters on implementing wireless data and low-mobility adjuncts in a GSM network. You'll also learn how GSM achieves security via cryptographic algorithms, SIM cards and authentication. The authors present differences between GSM and other TDMA-based wireless technologies and close with a preview ofnext-generation wireless systems made possible by the UMT-2000 standards effort.
Whether you're a wireless communications engineer, faculty member or student, you won't find a more thorough, insightful guide to GSM wireless technology.
