Although LTE is being widely deployed across the globe, there are still very many operators using and also deploying HSPA as it offers many advantages. Often when 3G is already installed, or forms of HSPA are available, it is simpler and more cost effective to upgrade these networks and in due course migrate to LTE. Accordingly many HSPA networks are still in widespread use and being actively improved.
With this background, This book entitled HSPA Evolution: the fundamentals for mobile broadband has an important place on any engineer involved with the cellular telecommunications industry.
The book provides a well-structured approach to its coverage of 3G HSPA. The introduction looks at the 3G and 4G background, covering topics like the introduction of 3G and also the standardisation. The book moves on to look at the technologies employed behind HSPA including CDAM, multi-antenna techniques, scheduling, link adaptation and hybrid ARQ.
The third section of the book starts with a look at HSPA and its evolution. It continues with an in-depth view the core HSPA elements of HSDPA and HSUPA. It also looks at higher order modulation and multicarrier techniques as well as multiflow transmission. It also looks at Multimedia broadcast and multicast services as well as the spectrum and RF characteristics of the HSPA signal. There is also a chapter on heterogeneous networks and their impact on the overall operation of the system.
The book finishes with a look at the overall HSPA performance as well as look at Rel 12 and beyond.
