About the book:

As the mobile phone revolution brings video, photos and Web pages to our handsets, telecommunications experts from around the globe have been collaborating to develop standards to underpin third-generation phone systems. This book is an in-depth assessment of WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access), the main third-generation air interface. WCDMA will be deployed in Europe and Asia at the same frequency band, (around 2GigaHerz) and it is expected to spawn a whole host of new gadgets. It will allow mobile phone companies to launch an array of new services. The authors all work for Nokia, one of the companies leading the move to wideband communications, and as might be expected, this is a comprehensive assessment of the technology.

It explains how WCDMA differs from today's digital interfaces, its main features, the background to it becoming a global standard, and gives valuable advice on getting the best performance from 3G networks. It also examines other technologies which could be used to provide multimedia phone services, such as EDGE, the evolution of GSM for high data rates.

WCDMA for UMTS: Radio Access for Third Generation Mobile Communications is aimed at technology and communications students, technical people working for device manufacturers and service providers and frequency regulators. It includes a comprehensive glossary and lots of diagrams which should make it an invaluable desk reference for anyone working in the rapidly evolving telecoms world. --Shan Ni Ceallaigh
