Get a clear, complete debriefing on the current status of the third generation radio interface technology now being standardized by the international body 3GPP. This timely new work, written by Europe's leading mobile communications researchers from manufacturing, operators, and academia, gives you a thorough explanation of the basic principles of multiple access technologies, including receiver algorithms, coding, and modulation, to help you stay up-to-date with the development of third generation systems. Much of the research presented here originated in the FRAMES (Future Radio Wideband Multiple Access System) Project, which was partly funded by the European Commission. It served as the basis for ETSI's decision to adopt W-CDMA/TD-CDMA as the air interface standard for third generation systems, as well as for the actual specification work in 3GPP. Featuring the contributions of several major industrial and academic players, this book delivers the basic principles and the analytical models for the UTRA TDD mode using TD/CDMA, and for the UTRA FDD mode using W-CDMA, allowing you to understand how this multiple access system fulfills UMTS requirements. Plus, you're presented with key advanced receiver algorithms, coding and modulation techniques, and Layer 2 issues including the UTRA architecture, protocol architectures, signaling protocols, and ARQ schemes. Included is an examination of TDD and FDD mode compatibility with GSM, and the methods used for calculating mobile station location within the coverage area. With this unique new book you get an invaluable integrated resource that examines the fundamentals and applications of the most important third generation mobile communications technologies.
