This new volume offers in–depth descriptions and explanations of 3GPP standards, and expected performance based on simulations and measurements. The text also discusses the impact of HSDPA and HSUPA on network dimensioning and network algorithms, covers end–to–end performance, and includes descriptions on HSPA terminal radio frequency requirements.
- Explains 3GPP HSDPA and HSUPA standard with illustrations
- Describes the co–existence of WCDMA and HSPA
- Presents HSPA network algorithms
- Analyses HSPA data rates, coverage and capacity with simulations and network measurements
- Illustrates end–to–end application performance with HSPA radio networks
- Introduces HSPA terminal radio frequency (RF) requirements
Written by leading experts in the field, this advanced guide will appeal to system designers, network R&D experts, mobile chip designers, network planners, application developers and technical managers with operators and vendors. It will also be a useful resource for postgraduate students and researchers in related areas.
