Handbook of Mobile Radio Networks
A system-level treatment of the total realm of mobile radio communications, covering both the basic concepts and the systems themselves, to help the reader improve performance, increase productivity and save time. Part One, Basic Concepts, provides a concise introduction to the main topics and techniques involved in mobile radio systems. It covers classic areas such as propagation and signal processing, as well as more recent techniques and concepts such as security, planning, and mobility management. In Part Two, The Systems, there is an inside look at all categories of terrestrial mobile radio systems. Again it covers both traditional topics such as cellular and cordless systems, and more recent, such as mobile radio communications systems, paging, or radio data network systems. In fact all relevant standards are dealt with: TETRA, DECT, PHS, GSM, IS-95, PDC, CDPD, IEEE 802.11, and HYPERLAN. It demonstrates how to link budget calculations, determine the impact of mobility signalling on the network signalling load, design handover procedures and plan for cellular and capacity increases.
