Explains code division multiple access radio frequency (CDMA RF) system engineering, emphasizing both theoretical and application aspects of code division as specifically applied to engineering a land-mobile network. Focus is on the relationship between general areas of digital communication and specific features of IS-95. Other areas of land-mobile communications engineering, such as network management and traffic engineering, are also treated, with an emphasis on CDMA application. Chapters are independent of each other. Intended audience is practicing managers and engineers, senior undergraduates, and first-year graduate students. Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR
Understand the essentials of CDMA wireless technology and develop the knowledge you need to design and operate either co-located AMPS and CDMA or dedicated CDMA systems with this unique reference. Drawing upon his recent experience in building the first major CDMA network in North America, the author helps you acquire the knowledge you need to engineer and implement an IS-95 based CDMA system.
Examining both the theoretical and practical side of CDMA engineering, this comprehensive guide is an excellent resource for practicing RF and system engineers who will find the modular-oriented chapters on spread-spectrum multiple access technique, design and performance engineering, CDMA traffic engineering, and regulatory implications especially useful. Engineering managers and directors seeking proficiency in CDMA technology will appreciate the author's ability to supply a "big picture" perspective where only the most important and relevant information to designing and optimizing a CDMA system is presented. A systemic approach makes this an ideal book for use in technical training and academic classes.
