WCDMA for UMTS: Radio Access for Third Generation Mobile Communications

Highly regarded as the book on the air interface of 3G cellular systems WCDMA for UMTS has again been fully revised and updated. The third edition now covers the key features of 3GPP Release 6 ensuring it remains the leading principal resource in this constantly progressing area.

By providing a deep understanding of the WCDMA air interface, the practical approach of this third edition will continue to appeal to operators, network and terminal manufacturers, service providers, university students and frequency regulators.

  • Explains the key parts of the 3GPP/WCDMA standard
  • Presents network dimensioning, coverage and capacity of WCDMA
  • Introduces TDD and discusses its differences from FDD

Key third edition updates include:

  • Covers the main 3GPP Release 6 updates
  • Further enhances High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) chapter with a number of new simulation results
  • Explains High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) study item
  • Introduces the new services including their performance analysis : Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC), streaming, See What I See (SWIS) and multiplayer games
  • Presents a number of new WCDMA field measurement results: capacity, end-to-end performance and handovers
  • Includes completely updated antenna beamforming and multiuser detection sections featuring new simulation results
  • Introduces TD-SCDMA and compares it to Release’99 TDD
As wireless communications technologies evolve, Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) seems a strong candidate for providing multimedia to the handset, as well as Universal Mobile Telecommunications Services (UMTS)--which is to say common wireless communications standards over most of the world. WCDMA for UMTS sets out to decipher the standards documents of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Specifically, this book deals with the 3GPP documents on Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Time Division Duplex (TDD) for Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRA). This book should prove valuable to readers who plan to implement WCDMA in hardware designs or service offerings.

A series of engineering problems make up the backbone of the book, and each part of the deployment process is explained via text and calculations. For example, in the discussion on planning a radio network for WCDMA service provision, the book explains precisely how to take into account requirements (for quality of service, user capacity, and coverage) and conditions (such as terrain). Readers get formulas into which they can plug relative traffic predictions for voice, real-time data, non-real-time data, and overhead. There's also an explanation of how to interpret the formula output for deploying antennae. This is a serious engineering handbook for those who are involved in deploying WCDMA.
