Prentice Hall PTR 423 pages; $75
CDMA technology has undergone major changes and has become a viable technology for third-generation (3G) systems. This book defines those aspects of CDMA that are essential to understanding system capacity, and provides guidelines for system parameters of a CDMA network. The migration path from CDMA to a 3G cdma2000 system is outlined.
The book is divided into four segments. Chapters 1 through 4 provide a foundation for understanding the subsequent chapters. Major attributes of CDMA and the access technologies for cellular/PCS systems are presented. Different types of spread-spectrum systems are described with the emphasis on direct sequence spread-spectrum techniques used in CDMA. Speech and channel coding applications in IS-95 CDMA systems are described and the concepts of diversity reception are explained.
Chapters 5 through 11 deal with IS-95 CDMA standards. A high level description of the IS-95 air interface is presented along with explanations of modulation schemes, bit repetition, block interleaving and channel coding. IS-95 CDMA call processing states, idle handoff, slotted paging, registration and authentication procedures, and other call management issues are discussed. The Is-95 handoff strategy and power control schemes for forward and reverse links are described.
The third section, involving Chapters 12 and 13, provides design aspects of a CDMA system, including a discussion of propagation models, link budgets, the transition from analog to CDMA operation, radio link capacity, facility engineering, border cells on a boundary between two service providers, and interfreqnency handoff. Procedures for calculating the capacity of the reverse and forward links of a CDMA system are presented. The final section focuses on data applications in CDMA and the evolution of IS-95 (2G) to cdma2000 (3G) to satisfy the ITU IMT2000 specification.
This book addresses the needs of practicing engineers and engineering managers in understanding CDMA concepts, system capacity and other aspects of the CDMA based cellular/PCS networks.
