This completely new book skips all radio aspects and focuses on the emerging all-IP core network and applications instead. Broadband wireless networks based on B3G and 4G have been intensively studied in the literature. On the other hand, the all-IP core network and applications that utilize broadband networks are seldom addressed. This book describes the mobile core network protocols and applications based on the 3GPP all-IP core network architecture. The book shows how the all-IP core network can be developed and how applications can be created. Special Feature Author has high profile in the professional engineering community with extensive exposure through his journal writings, chairing, and conference presentations All systems have been tested; review questions (and solutions) at the end of each chapter This follow-on book covers 3G (1st book covered 2G) and shows how the all-IP core network can be developed and how applications can be created Includes coverage of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) and SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), the topic of another best-selling Wiley engineering book About the Author Yi-Bing Lin is Chair of the Department of Computer Science & Information Engineering and VP of Research and Development at National Chiao Tung University.
