High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) is a collection of two mobile telephony protocols, High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA). Allowing networks based on the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System to achieve data rates of several megabits per second, these powerful protocols are ideal for applications ranging from file transfer to multimedia streaming.
From basic concepts to research grade material, the HSDPA/HSUPA Handbook provides technical information on all aspects of HSDPA/HSUPA. With contributions from 30 experts from around the world, this comprehensive HSPA reference provides a global and authoritative perspective of this rapidly emerging technology.
Presenting information in a well-structured manner for ease of reference, this book presents accurate and up-to-date information on the full spectrum of topics related to HSPA technology, including future directions. The ideal desk reference for designers and planners of contemporary wireless communication networks, this book can also be adopted as a textbook for graduate and research-oriented courses that deal with HSPA.
This collection of thirteen essays on the High Speed Downlink, Uplink, and Packet Access (HSDPA/HSUPA) protocol attempts to provide a complete overview, from basic theory to cutting edge research, of this ubiquitous mobile networking data standard. Of interest to advanced electrical and telecommunications engineering students, articles discuss such topics as HSDPA/HSUPA performance, receiver designs, interference cancellation, packet scheduling, throughput measurement and network dimensioning, and include numerous illustrations, graphs and equations. Contributors to this volume include academics from a variety of universities around the world as well as industry experts from important networking and telecommunication companies such as Ericsson and Microsoft.
