This state-of-the-art book aims to address problems and solutions in implementing complex and high quality systems past the year 2000. In particular, it focuses on the development of languages, methods and tools and their further evaluation. Among the issues discussed are the following: evolution of software systems; specific application domains; supporting portability and reusability of software components; the development of networking software; and software architectures for various application domains. This book comprises the proceedings of the International Conference on Systems Implementation 2000: Languages, Methods and Tools, sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and was held in Germany, in February 1998. It will be particularly relevant to researchers in the field of software engineering and to software developers working in larger companies.
The Next Generation: Wireless Communications for Multimedia and Beyond Of all wireless technologies for personal communications, Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) offers the best combination of good signal quality, high security, low power consumption, and excellent system reliability. Features added in the IS-95 standard means this impressive list now also includes Third Generation (3G) data capabilities that will allow CDMA providers to offer Internet and intranet services for multimedia applications, high-speed business transactions, and telemetry. The upcoming cdma2000 standard will further expand usable bandwidth without sacrificing voice quality or requiring additional spectrum. In this book by an experienced telecommunications authority, you will learn how to maximize the power of CDMA, migrate existing systems to the newest standards, and prepare for a smooth transition to features yet to come. IS-95 CDMA and cdma2000: Cellular/PCS Systems Implementation covers all aspects of up-to-date CDMA implementation and operation, including: Coding and architecture Radio interface and call flow Physical, data link, and signaling layers Handoff and power control System security Wireless Data Reverse and Forward Link Capacity RF Engineering and network planning Evolution to Third Generation systems Practicing engineers and their managers will benefit from the in-depth coverage of IS-95 systems, RF engineering, and capacity planning. Students will appreciate the forward-looking approach that offers a look at the future of the industry where they are preparing for careers. IS-95 CDMA and cdma2000: Cellular/PCS Systems Implementation offers both practical applications information and conveniently organized reference materials for anyone interested in the next generation of wireless telecommunications.
