Wireless Internet Telecommunications

Between the late1970s and early 1990s, developments and inventions in two different areas, wireless and the Internet, were going on roughly at the same time, each in its own world. Especially in the 1990s, each area grewand blossomed tremendously.Today, the Internet and wireless are converging towards an exciting future.This can be partly explained by the recent convergence of communications and computing technologies. However, it is also indicative of the possibilities that could be obtained bymerging the features of the Internet and of wireless communications.This comprehensive book gives you a hands-on understanding of the techniques and architectures being used to provide voice and data services over wireless networks. It serves as a unified "how it works" guide to wireless Internet telecommunications, systematically addressing each of the technological components and how they fit together. You get a clear picture of protocols like RTP for multimedia transport and SIP for session control signaling, and see whats being done to tackle tough challenges in QoS control, mobility management, and security in the wireless environment. The book discusses at length the cutting-edge IP Multimedia Sub-System (IMS) of UMTS to illustrate how each of these crucial components can be successfully implemented in a real-world wireless IP system.

Fundamentals of Wireless Communication

This book is a web of interlocking concepts. The concepts can be structured roughly into three levels:channel characteristics andmodeling; communication concepts and techniques; application of these concepts in a system context. A wireless communication engineer should have an understanding of the concepts at all three levels as well as the tight interplay between the levels. We emphasize this interplay in the book by interlacing the chapters across these levels rather than presenting the topics sequentially from one level to the next.

Satellite Communication Systems

Acommunications satellite(sometimes abbreviated toCOMSAT) is an artificialsatellitestationed in space for the purpose oftelecommunications. Modern communications satellites use a variety of orbits includinggeostationary orbits,Molniya orbits, otherelliptical orbitsand low (polarand non-polar) Earth orbits.For fixed (point-to-point) services, communications satellites provide amicrowave radio relaytechnology complementary to that ofsubmarine communication cables. They are also used for mobile applications such as communications to ships, vehicles, planes and hand-held terminals, and for TV and radiobroadcasting, for which application of other technologies, such as cable, is impractical or impossible.

Understanding Telecommunication Networks

This new book explains how telecommunications networks work. It uses straightforward language supported by copious block - schematic diagrams so that non-engineers and engineers alike can learn about the principles of fixed and mobile telecommunications networks carrying voice and data. The book covers all aspects of today's networks, including how they are planned, formed and operated, plus next generation networks and how they will be implemented. After an introductory chapter on telephony, the book briefly describes all of today's networks - PSTN, mobile, cable television, the Internet, etc. - and considers how they interconnect. Individual chapters then consider the principles, technologies and network structures relating to transmission, circuit switching, signalling and control, data (including voice-over-IP) networks, and mobile networks. The important subject of numbering and addressing for telephony and IP is then covered. The book concludes with a chapter designed to pull everything together, considering architecture, quality of service and performance, operations, network evolution and next generation networks.

Location-Based Services

Location-based Services (LBSs) are mobile services for providing information that has been created, compiled, selected or filtered under consideration of the users current locations or those of other persons or mobile devices. Typical examples are restaurant finders, buddy trackers, navigation services or applications in the areas of mobile marketing and mobile gaming. The attractiveness of LBSs is due to the fact that users are not required to enter location information manually but are automatically pinpointed and tracked.This book explains the fundamentals and operation of LBSs and gives a thorough introduction to the key technologies and organizational procedures, offering comprehensive coverage of positioning methods, location protocols and service platforms, alongside an overview of interfaces, languages, APIs and middleware with examples demonstrating their usage.
