The merging of voice and data on a single network opens powerful new possibilities in communications. Only a fundamental understanding of both technologies will ensure you are equipped to maximise their full potential.
Convergence Technologies for 3G Networks describes the evolution from cellular to a converged network that integrates traditional telecommunications and the technology of the Internet. In particular, the authors address the application of both IP and ATM technologies to a cellular environment, including IP telephony protocols, the use of ATM/AAL2 and the new AAL2 signalling protocol for voice/multimedia and data transport as well as the future of the UMTS network in UMTS Release 5/6 All-IP architecture.

“This new book by Hayes and Ganesh Babu brings new life to an old ‘academic’ topic…the book satisfies all requirements to become a landmark…” (IEEE Network, March 2005)
“This very well-written book is a good mixture of classic and advanced material…I believe that it will become the standard reference.” (Computing Reviews.com, August 13, 2004)
This book covers at an advanced level mathematical methods for analysis
of telecommunication networks. The book concentrates on various call
models used in telecommunications such as quality of service (QoS) in
packet-switched Internet Protocol (IP) networks, Asynchronous Transfer
Mode (ATM), and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM). Professionals,
researchers, and graduate and dvanced undergraduate students of
telecommunications will benefit from this invaluable guidebook.
An Instructor’s Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available online from the Wiley editorial department.
