WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access), an ITU standard derived from code division multiple access (CDMA) is officially known as IMT-2000 direct spread. WCDMA is a third generation mobile wireless technology offering much higher data speeds to mobile and portable wireless devices than commonly offered in today’s market. WCDMA is a relatively new technology and there is little information in the public domain about specific design issues. The proposed book will discuss UMTS/WCDMA from the perspective of a potential development engineer, who may have experience of GSM but none of WCDMA technology. The book will outline the design specifications and potential problems and solutions faced by by an engineer designing a mobile device such as a handset. WCDMA: Requirements and Practical Design: Offers in-depth coverage of the critical issues in designing a UMTS handset modem. Discusses the practical design elements of a UMTS modem. Authored by leaders in their field, working at Ubinetics. Highly relevant to professional software engineers, Design engineers, Electrical engineers (RF base-band, DSP software, protocol software), technical managers, postgraduate students and academics.

The key feature of future mobile communication systems is the ability to deliver wideband and high bit-rate multimedia services alongside the traditional radio services such as voice, messaging and slow rate data. The broad range of services expected to be supported can be divided into different Quality of Service (QoS) classes. However, the provision of such mobile multimedia services under QoS guarantees will not be possible without a utilization of the air interface resources by means of Radio Resource Management (RRM) strategies that ensure the target QoS, the planned coverage area and that offer a high system capacity. Under this framework, the book focuses on the RRM concepts, including the theoretical background that serves as a basis for the description of specific RRM algorithms. The RRM problem for UMTS is presented, and more specifically, for the FDD mode, which is based on a WCDMA scheme. More specifically, the different aspects that are covered include: Introduces the mobile communications sector and UMTS, including the evolution towards 4G systems, with an overview of the QoS concept which is key for the definition of RRM strategies Offers a detailed description of the radio interface in UMTS, as the basis for the implementation of RRM strategies Provides the fundamental concepts related with the development of RRM strategies in WCDMA networks Analyses particular RRM algorithms in a variety of scenarios, trying to identify the key parameters and factors that influence their performance Explores the evolution of UMTS towards Beyond 3G systems and the concept of Common RRM in heterogeneous networks with the aid of some algorithm examples This comprehensive title is essential reading for engineers and managers in radio engineering departments of UMTS network operators and UMTS equipment manufacturers. It will also prove insightful to researchers in the field of 3G and Beyond 3G systems and academics in any of these areas.

A modern mobile phone is a highly complex electronic system made up from a variety of diverse sub-systems, all of which must work seamlessly together. Today's users have very high expectations which set tough demands on manufacturers as they introduce third generation technology. While quality, in terms of the phone's stability, performance and behaviour on the network, originate from good design, the only way to be sure of quality is by testing it. This makes testing a very important part of any mobile phone's life cycle, from development through to manufacture and beyond, touching a number of different disciplines and departments. Testing UMTS is divided in three sections. Section One provides an overview of major types of testing and the organisations and tasks involved. In particular it looks at what is involved in conformance testing and device certification. Section Two is more technical and looks at the UMTS standard itself, working through the protocol layers. Future trends and their impact on testing mobile devices are examined in Section Three, including the emergence of new technologies both in the access network and the core network and the evolution of new testing methodologies. Examines UMTS and the testing of UMTS devices which are huge areas in the testing process Provides essential information on processes and techniques for mobile phone testing Operation of the UMTS standard is described from a test point of view Focuses on most important areas of the 3rd-Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard from a test perspective Offers advice on products, services and resources that aid the testing process. This book is an ideal text for engineers and managers who are either directly involved in the process of testing UMTS mobiles, or who are looking for an understanding of what is involved in testing. Professionals involved in the development of UMTS mobiles, integration and verification, conformance testing, operator acceptance testing, manufacturing and servicing will find this book indispensable.
