The Wireless Mobile Internet: Architectures, Protocols and Services
The Wireless Mobile Internet - Architectures, Protocols, and Services elegantly bridges this gap and therefore provides the first complete literature for the wireless Internet both describing the standard activities and the current status of the wireless IP, as well as detailing network models and specific techniques. While some chapters in the Wireless Mobile Internet describe the standard activities and the current status of the wireless IP other chapters detail network models and specific techniques that usually approached by academic researchers.
* Comprehensive yet simple understanding of the wireless Internet through usage of more than 250 conceptual and numerical result figures
* Logical organization for customized use as a reference book on the state-of-the-art technology for wireless Internet, a text for fundamental components of the wireless Internet, standards, and a guideline for advanced research topics
* Provides an easy-to-read but complete reference for core network and access technology of 2G and 3G cellular systems as well as related standards
* Illustrates the main features of future mobile networks
* Offers a thorough literature on essentials for a mobile network: quality of service, traffic modelling and management, mobility management, transport protocols, and network protocols
* Uniquely covers all relevant telecommunication access and network technologies for wireless Internet from wireless LAN to satellite
Essential reading for researchers from industry and academia in the field of wireless cellular networks and Internet, practicing engineers who need a single text on the subject as well as senior level undergraduates and first-year postgraduates.
