338 pages




The evolved packet system (EPS) represents the latest advance in the standard for 2G GSM and 3G UMTS, key mobile communication technologies. This work presents a system end-to-end examination of EPS as introduced in Release 8 of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard committee. Coverage includes the radio interface, the service level, network architecture, radio protocols, and subscriber and session management. Hundreds of documents being issued by standard organizations are summarized. Because EPS is not a standalone technology, the book also shows the inheritance and relationships between 2G GSM and early 3G UMTS in terms of ground principles and technical aspects. A glossary is included. The book is for professionals in the telecommunications business, telecommunication system architects and designers, product manufacturers and operators, and postgraduate students. The authors are affiliated with Alcatel-Lucent, France.
