Simple and Comprehensive treatment of 2G technologies for telecommunication engineers
2G Mobile Networks: GSM and HSCSD is a comprehensive reference for Telecommunication engineers. Marketing and sales professionals would find this an extremely useful source since the book cuts out the jargon and complicated mathematics. Written by practicing telecom engineers with a vast experience in mobile telecommunication technologies, the book presents 2G technologies in a simple and effective manner from three view points: architecture and protocols, procedures, and services.
Readers will gain a thorough and quick understanding of GSM networks-from air interface to core network and the available services. The book provides an exhaustive coverage of protocol architecture and procedures, including radio resource and mobility management, as well as call handling. It begins by laying down the fundamentals of GSM technology cellular concepts, network and protocol architecture of GSM. This is followed by a discussion of GSM air interface that covers important topics including GSM frame hierarchy, burst structure, physical and logical channels. The discussion then moves onto the three logical parts of any basic wireless architecture-Mobile Station, Access and Core Networks. Important procedures of access and core networks are discussed next. The book ends with discussions of service aspects of GSM networks. These include voice transfer, SMS, cell broadcast service, location services and finally circuit switched data, and the more advanced high-speed circuit switched data.
Each of the topics presented are well supplemented with illustrations to facilitate comprehension of the matter.
