Key Features

*A real-world design guide with cookbook-style instructions and rules of thumb, not another R&D-level book or crib to the standards.
*Covers the hot engineering issues in UMTS planning, design and implementation.
*UMTS is the natural evolutionary choice for operations of GSM networks, currently representing a customer base of more than 747 million end users in over 180 countries and representing over 70% of today's digital wireless market[source: GSM Association]


UMTS is the wireless network technology behind the rollout of Third Generation (3G) mobile telecoms networks which will bring video, music and internet services to the cellphone and a range of electronic products.
Chris Braithwaite and Mike Scott use their extensive experience of training engineers across Europe, and their backgrounds in working with Nokia, Ericsson and Orange to deliver a uniquely practical guide written from the perspective of the engineer and network planner. This guide is a valuable addition to the literature on UMTS which to date has been dominated by theoretical and reference works. The authors consider each of the key topics of UMTS/WCDMA and 3G rollout in terms of Coverage, Capacity and Quality of Service- the key considerations for all engineers and managers working in 3G telecoms.


Mobile Telecommunications engineers and managers:manufacturers, vendors and operators. Network planning engineers and managers, UMTS systems developers, R&D engineers, EE students.
