If you want guidance in estimating response times across a network and identifying which part of a 3G network is responsible for any reported QoS (quality of service) problems, this innovative book is a must read for you. It serves as a hands-on, working guide to the way different parts of an integrated 3G mobile network affect quality. The book helps you gain a better understanding of the trade-off between quality of service and the usable capacity of the network, the best applications to use for multimedia applications, and how to handle quality problems.

The book describes the factors governing quality in integrated third generation mobile networks, dealing with issues arising from both fixed networks and their protocols, as well as the mobile part. Considerable attention is devoted to features of specific application types likely to be run over the integrated network. Moreover, you get comprehensive coverage of leading-edge technologies, including WCDMA, cdma2000, and GPRS. Contents: Introduction -- Evolution of Mobile Networks. User Concept of Quality. Cost/Benefits of Quality. Coding Overview -- Role of Coding. Block Codes. Trellis. Convolution Codes. Turbo Codes. Spreading and Channelization Codes. WCDMA -- Nature and Principles. Physical Layer.
