Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) has become the tool to design any type of public security systems, in particular due to the strongly increased security demands for mobile systems. In this book, the authors show how TETRA can be strongly improved and these improvements will most probably be part of future TETRA standards. The areas examined include channel assignment and multiple access techniques, video transmission, wireless LAN integration, and the establishment of multiple wireless mesh networks. Since the requirements for these networks is security, the authors show that innovative techniques such as those based on chaotic signals can be used in order to maximize security. The book is a vital reference point for researchers with ambition to find the general solution for modern problems of public safety.

TETRA is a system for mobile wireless communications and this is a highly topical and comprehensive introduction to the design and applications of TETRA systems including practical examples. TETRA is comparable in structure to the world-wide successful GSM system, however, individual features of TETRA are different, often more efficient and better designed than in GSM. TETRA is therefore providing an important source for the further development of standards for mobile telecommunications. This volume is timely and one of the first to cover TETRA and related subject areas. Features include: * Detailed discussion of public and private mobile communications domain * Architecture, components and services of TETRA and * Design and operational aspects of the system Based on courses for industry, presented by the authors, Digital Mobile Communications and the TETRA System will prove indispensable reading for service providers, design engineers and systems managers in the private mobile communications market. It also provides a thorough grounding in general digital mobile communications for communications engineers and undergraduate and postgraduate students in telecommunications.

In this brand new volume, Ian Poole begins with a fine introduction to radio, suitable for almost all readers. ...the book is an excellent way for neophytes to step into radio and learn something about it. It begins with the basics and gradually brings in more advanced concepts. We recommend it as an additon to the technical libraries of intermediate-level technical readers. It is an interesting read even for the advanced engineer. - QEX July/August 2004 Ian Poole has written a fascinating guide to the technology and applications of modern radio and communications equipment. His approach provides a useful foundation for college students and technicians seeking an update on the latest technology, but each topic is introduced from the basics, ensuring that the book is equally rewarding for managers in the communications industry, sales staff, and anyone seeking to update their knowledge of this exciting and rapidly expanding area of technology. The key areas covered by this book are: Radio principles Broadcasting, including Digital Radio Private mobile radio, (PMR) including trunking and TETRA Cellular telecommunications, including GSM and 3G Data communications, including Bluetooth and 802.11 As well as a survey of established and cutting-edge technologies the underpinning science and electronics is introduced. *Includes a survey of established and cutting-edge communication technologies *Introduces the underpinning science and electronics of the subject *Provides an emphasis on circuits and how they work

This comprehensive volume provides state-of-the art guidance on Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of end-user Experience (QoE) management in UMTS cellular systems, tackling planning, provisioning, monitoring and optimisation issues in a single accessible resource. In addition, a detailed discussion is provided on service applications, QoS concept, architecture and functions in access, packet & circuit switched core and backbone networks. Defines and explains the differences between QoS and QoE, and end-to-end concept, based on the premise that it is the end-user who is the ultimate beneficiary of QoS. Covers QoS and QoE issues related to present and forthcoming service applications, including multimedia messaging service (MMS), Video Sharing (VS), content download, business connectivity, Push to talk over Cellular (PoC), Voice over IP (VoIP), presence, instant messaging, gaming, streaming and browsing. Presents QoS concepts and architecture as defined in 3GPP Releases 97/98, 99, 5, 6, and 7, and provides a comprehensive description of protocols and packet data transfer across WCDMA evolved and (E)GPRS networks. Discusses service driven radio network planning aspects for (E)GPRS and WCDMA. Includes three detailed chapters covering concepts, means and methods for QoS provisioning, QoS & QoE performance monitoring and optimisation. This book is aimed at operators, vendors, deployers, consultants and managers specialising in the research, development, implementation, marketing and sales of products and tools for QoS and QoE management in UMTS networks. It will also be of interest to postgraduate students and researchers in the field of telecommunications and specialising in UMTS QoS and QoE principles and practices.
