Understand the essentials of CDMA wireless technology and develop the knowledge you need to design and operate either co-located AMPS and CDMA or dedicated CDMA systems with this unique reference. Drawing upon his recent experience in building the first major CDMA network in North America, the author helps you acquire the knowledge you need to engineer and implement an IS-95 based CDMA system. Examining both the theoretical and practical side of CDMA engineering, this comprehensive guide is an excellent resource for practicing RF and system engineers who will find the modular-oriented chapters on spread-spectrum multiple access technique, design and performance engineering, CDMA traffic engineering, and regulatory implications especially useful. Engineering managers and directors seeking proficiency in CDMA technology will appreciate the author's ability to supply a big picture perspective where only the most important and relevant information to designing and optimizing a CDMA system is presented. A systemic approach makes this an ideal book for use in technical training and academic classes.
