"GSM made easy" by two industry insiders - that's the thrust of this timely beginner's guide to the most widely used digital wireless standard in the world. Highly economical and prevalent in Europe and Asia, GSM is making inroads in North America. Telecommunications engineers who need to learn GSM basics will turn to this accessible, non-mathematical, applications-oriented resource. It explains the operation of GSM PCS and cellular systems - details the services GSM can offer and covers the "superphone" concept, which links GSM voice service with other digital technologies - and shows how to profitably deploy GSM.

Already the world's leading cellular and PCS standard,
frontier-hopping GSM stands poised for a major thrust into the U.S.
market-still an alphabet soup of competing (and too often
incompatible) products. This detailed guide gives you the knowledge
you need to ride the GSM juggernaut. GSM Superphones shows you how to:
stay ahead of your competitors on recently released features of second
generation and upcoming third generation GSM; take profitable
advantage of GSM's "superphone" linkability to other digital products;
apply GSM solutions in your network environment; be prepared for new
demand with technical and business solutions; be among the first
providers to offer hot, new GSM-enabled services. With clear, readable
text and a wealth of tantalizing examples and case studies, GSM
Superphones makes GSM easy to understand, even if you don't have a
technical degree. Light on the math and packed with lists of all major
GSM component and network suppliers, a critical overview of
technologies and services, and an essential scope-out of the movement
of the marketplace, this book is a must-have for anyone in the
telecommunications game. "This book provides a broad view of how GSM
