3G, HSPA and FDD versus TDD Networking: Smart Antennas and Adaptive Modulation, 2nd Edition (0470754206) cover image
The original book was the first text to jointly assess the topics of both physical-layer and network-layer aspects of wireless systems using a cross-layer optimisation approach and it stimulated much of the research that led to the standardisation of the HSDPA 3G system. In the five years since the first edition was published the wireless landscape has evolved further. This new book addresses the recent developments in the field of HSDPA-style wireless networking, focusing particularly on the issues and challenges of FDD versus TDD networking.

The book provides an all-encompassing, self-contained overview of the subject. The material is presented clearly and logically allowing the uninitiated reader to commence reading it at the beginning of the book, while advanced readers can turn directly to the required chapter describing solutions to a number of wireless FDD or TDD networking problems.

  • Builds on successful previous edition to include recent developments in the field of HSDPA-style wireless networking
  • Provides an all-encompassing self-contained treatment of the subject for a wide range of readers of all levels.
  • Treats the topics of both physical-layer and network-layer aspects of wireless systems using a cross-layer optimization approach
  • One of the first books to cover in detail both FDD and TDD networking and analyses and compares the performance of both systems.
  • New sections cover ad hoc networks and cooperative communications

Will benefit research workers in the cellular industry as well as postgraduate researchers and students, academics and professionals, engineers involved in designing and deploying 3G networks, people working for government agencies, telecommunication regulatory bodies and service providers.
