QoS in Integrated 3G Networks offers you clear descriptions of the factors governing quality in integrated third generation mobile networks, dealing with issues arising from both fixed and mobile systems, and their protocols. Leading-edge technologies, including WCDMA, cdma2000, and GPRS are covered comprehensively and considerable attention is devoted to features of specific application types likely to be run over the integrated network. The book provides you with expert guidance in estimating response times across a network and identifying which part of a 3G network is responsible for any reported QoS (quality of service) problems. This unique, hands-on resource shows you the way different parts of an integrated 3G mobile network affect quality. It offers a better understanding of the trade-off between quality of service and the usable capacity of the network, the best applications to use for multimedia applications, and how to handle quality problems.
