The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'IS-95 CDMA and cdma 2000: Cellular/PCS Systems Implementation':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) is the system of choice for wireless communications where multiple access is needed. It is tolerant of interference, provides good quality of service, and is comparatively secure. In addition, there are economies in bandwidth efficiency and battery life. CDMA is well positioned to be the backbone of advanced telecommunications services. Chapter one outlines these and other advantages of CDMA, as well as explaining the basics of TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) and FDMA (Frequency Division Multiple Access). Keying and Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum are reviewed in chapter two, which is heavy on math and seemingly aimed at engineering students. There is a brief discussion of voice encoding, and more math, in chapter three. Chapter four presents an interesting look at the combination of signals in time and space, and at other factors required for the best transmission and reception. Chapter five starts to look at the components of the IS 95 CDMA system architecture, and at Telecommunications Research standard 45/46 on which it is based. The air interface is examined in chapter six. Implementation of CDMA in existing AMPS systems, and the channel requirement, is reviewed in chapter seven. The call setup process, signalling and service management, soft handoff and power control, and security and identification are covered in chapters eight through eleven. Chapter twelve looks at engineering models for network and antenna siting. Link capacity is discussed in chapter thirteen, both in terms of forward (base station to mobile) and reverse traffic, and in the tradeoffs made to accommodate functions such as soft handoff. Related wireless data protocols are listed in chapter fourteen. Chapter fifteen closes off with a look at advanced services to be offered in CDMA 2000. This book clearly presents the advantages of CDMA, and the options available for the future. copyright Robert M. Slade, 2000
