Abstract: From the Publisher: WCDMA for UMTS provides a complete picture of the Wideband CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) air interface of the 3rd generation cellular systems - UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications Systems). WCDMA is designed for multimedia communications including high quality images and video, and access to services with high data rates. These capabilities will create new business opportunities for manufacturers, operators and for the providers of content and applications. * Explains the key parts of the WCDMA standard and provides guidelines for its efficient use * Presents network dimensioning and coverage and capacity planning of WCDMA * Introduces radio resource management algorithms in the WCDMA network * Examines the coverage and capacity of WCDMA up to 2Mbps using numerous simulation results * Introduces the TDD (Time Divisions Duplex) mode * Discusses the co-existence of TDD and FDD (Frequency Divisions Duplex) and highlights their main differences Now includes the main modifications made to the 3GPP standard up until the end of 2000 and features the following new material: * Reference terminal classes * Current status of UMTS licensing * Capacity upgrade paths and capacity per km2 * Inter-frequency handovers and inter-system handovers to GSM * Antenna diversity gain measurements in the WCDMA experimental system Written by leading experts in the field, this practical approach to the key features in WCDMA will have wide-ranging appeal to Research and Development Engineers, Practising Engineers, Cellular Operators, Technical Managers and Students on Telecommunications courses.

TL;DR: System architects involved in the design of personal communications systems will find the book to be a complete description of the GSM communications system, and it may serve as a general introduction to digital cellular systems.
Abstract: From the Publisher: This book is out-of-print, and a new second edition will be released by the end of 2002. The digital standard known as the Global System for Mobile (GSM) has captured a large share of the global cellular market. This book aims to bridge the gap between a reader’s basic knowledge of telecommunications and the complexities of the 5000-page GSM technical specification. It describes the system as a whole, covering all aspects of the standard, including mobile stations, switching equipment, the radio interface, infrastructure, transmission methods, and signaling protocols. System architects involved in the design of personal communications systems will find the book to be a complete description of the GSM communications system. It also may serve as a general introduction to digital cellular systems.

TL;DR: TailEnder is developed, a protocol that reduces energy consumption of common mobile applications and aggressively prefetches several times more data and improves user-specified response times while consuming less energy.
Abstract: In this paper, we present a measurement study of the energy consumption characteristics of three widespread mobile networking technologies: 3G, GSM, and WiFi. We find that 3G and GSM incur a high tail energy overhead because of lingering in high power states after completing a transfer. Based on these measurements, we develop a model for the energy consumed by network activity for each technology.Using this model, we develop TailEnder, a protocol that reduces energy consumption of common mobile applications. For applications that can tolerate a small delay such as e-mail, TailEnder schedules transfers so as to minimize the cumulative energy consumed meeting user-specified deadlines. We show that the TailEnder scheduling algorithm is within a factor 2x of the optimal and show that any online algorithm can at best be within a factor 1.62x of the optimal. For applications like web search that can benefit from prefetching, TailEnder aggressively prefetches several times more data and improves user-specified response times while consuming less energy. We evaluate the benefits of TailEnder for three different case study applications - email, news feeds, and web search - based on real user logs and show significant reduction in energy consumption in each case. Experiments conducted on the mobile phone show that TailEnder can download 60% more news feed updates and download search results for more than 50% of web queries, compared to using the default policy.

Abstract: From the Publisher: Mobile radio communications technology has progressed rapidly and it is now capable of the transmission of voice, data and image signals. This new edition explains the latest techniques employed in second and third generation systems. A comprehensive all-in-one mobile communication reference work, Mobile Radio Communications, Second Edition reflects the current state-of-the-art by featuring expanded and updated sections on voice compression techniques, interleaving and channel coding methods, quaternary frequency shift keying, continuous phase modulation methods, Viterbi equalisation and slow frequency hopping as well as extended coverage of the GSM system; and three new chapters on wireless multimedia, third generation systems and on WATM respectively. As in the first edition, this edition continues to cover important topics such as radio propagation, multiple access methods and, on a higher level, cordless telecommunications and teletraffic issues. This book will prove invaluable to mobile communication engineers, designers, researchers and students in the design, operation and research of second and third generation systems and wireless LANs.
