Here's your all-IP network handbook for 3G and beyond
Experts forecast a future in which all telephone services will be delivered over the economical, efficient IP network. In this follow-up to Wireless and Mobile Network Architecture, the bestselling guide to wireless network engineering, Yi-Bing Lin and Ai-Chun Pang delve into third and beyond generation networks to give you a solid foundation for the 3G/B3G environment. They provide an in-depth examination of how the all-IP core network can be developed and how applications are created, with review questions at the end of every chapter to help you hone your skills.
You'll be able to:
About the Author Yi-Bing Lin
- Understand mobile core network protocols and applications based on the 3G/B3G all-IP core network architecture
- Handle SGSN/GGSN session management functions for IP connection
