About the Authors
  • This practical book is for anyone who needs to understand the solutions that allow multimedia communications between mobile networks and fixed wireless communications. It presents the fundamentals of individual fixed and mobile wireless technologies in terms of architectures, standards, management capabilities and quality of service issues, is essential reading. Adopting the term Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC), an analysis of the interworking between cellular networks and a variety of wireless technologies, such as WLAN, WiMAX, RFID and UWB, is provided. An in-depth study of the convergent solutions offered by UMA and IMS is also given, together with up-to-date information about products, vendors and current service offerings. You’ll also find criteria for analyzing and evaluating fixed-mobile convergent products and services, and numerous diagrams and feature/component tables. This practical text is ideal for engineers and practitioners in the field of telecommunications and wireless communications, as well as graduate students of electrical and computer engineering.

    • Provides a comprehensive, practical analysis of the technical solutions for convergence
    • Practical, up-to-date information is given about solutions, products, vendors and current service offerings
    • The standardized convergence solutions offered by UMA and IMS are discussed

    Reviews & endorsements

    'I don't believe that there is any other book on the market that does such a good job of bringing together the variety of networks and their advantages, disadvantages, standards, and potential for convergence. … This book is an enjoyable read (for a nerd) of the network technologies we have at our fingertips, how those technologies came to be, and how they are and might integrate together.' IEEE Microwave Magazine
