GSM, cdmaOne and 3G Systems provides the reader with a comprehensive and unique description of the two leading second generation cellular radio systems: the global system for mobile communication (GSM) and cmdaOne. This novel approach encompasses a two-chapter format for both systems. One chapter follows a descriptive approach of a system, whilst the second chapter takes on an analytical stance. This imaginative strategy enables readers to by-pass the analysis if they so wish and concentrate on system descriptions. The focus then moves towards the forthcoming third generation (3G) cellular systems. Such a creative approach will have wide-ranging appeal to a large audience including practising engineers in the mobile radio industry, academics and the research and development community.
