9780071406550: Wireless Network Performance Handbook (Telecom Engineering)

As wireless networks take ever-bigger bites out of the $350 billion dollar telephone market, they create their own performance problems. International customers require global networks; more customers mean bigger networks; new services create more complicated networks. Then there’s “changing out” the network; each time a provider introduces a new technology or capability, it has to do so without interrupting service delivery to existing customers. Here is realistic advice on metrics, troubleshooting methods, design guidelines, revenue assurance, and more, from a team that has performed the same services for AT&T Wireless, Nextel, and Verizon. Key Features: · Design rules of thumb · How to move from TDMA to GSM · Optimization options for mobile data · Hardcore engineering problems like prepaid services and roamer validation

Review:

Smith and Gervelis' experience in industry is in evidence in this thorough and practical text to the wireless network industry. The text emphasizes application and is filled with examples and solutions from actual practice. Five platforms are covered: AMPS, IS-136, GSM/GPRS, CDMA, AND iDEN. Both the RF and network aspects of the engineering are described. With emphasis throughout on problem solving, the text moves from a description of the key systems--including PCS, WLL, WAP, Bluetooth, VoIP--to applications in radio engineering, wireless mobile radio technology, RF design guidelines, and system performance. Practical chapters are also included on billing and charging, revenue assurance, system documentation, network and RF planning, and organization and training. ( Sci-Tech Book News 2003-09-01)
