This book is essential reading for those wishing to obtain a systems perspective and a broad view on the background, performance and application of the latest developments in HSPA in the context of the demands on today's mobile broadband devices and networks. It takes the reader behind the scenes of 3GPP and provides an easily accessible understanding of the basic principles, the latest steps in the standard's evolution, and the motivations behind the development of standardized features. It covers important topics such as smartphone related features, multi-carrier and multi-antenna operation, interface architecture, heterogeneous networks and HSPA system performance. Offering full coverage of recent developments in HSPA up to Release 13, this book will provide a comprehensive description of one of the dominating standards for mobile broadband.
With this book, you will:
Get a guided and consistent tour through the evolutionary stages of HSPA Gain an understanding of the 3GPP standardization process, the driving forces behind it, and the need for evolution Learn about the fundamental technology components of a modern wireless communication system, such as basic link level architecture, cellular system behavior, traffic management and scheduling and system management Learn in detail the features of the latest HSPA development up to Release 13 Gain a deep insight into the means by which HSPA performance can be simulated and characterized, the factors that drive the performance of networks and user experience, and the performance expectations for the technology Obtain insight into the telecommunications market and its evolution Learn about current trends and the future direction of HSPA

Thomas Chapman is currently working within the radio access and standardization team within the Standards and Technology group at Ericsson. He has been contributing into 3GPP standardisation since 2000 to the whole portfolio of 3GPP technologies including UTRA TDD, WCDMA, HSPA, LTE and NR, and has been deeply involved in concept evaluation and standardization of AAS in RAN4. He holds an MSc (1996) and PhD (2000) in electronic engineering and signal processing from the University of Manchester, UK. Erik Larsson joined Ericsson in 2005. He is currently a researcher working with concept development and network performance for NR with a focus on advanced antenna systems. He holds both an M.Sc. in engineering physics and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, specializing in signal processing, from Uppsala University, Sweden. Erik Dahlman works at Ericsson Research and are deeply involved in 4G and 5G development and standardization since the early days of 3G research. Stefan Parkvall works at Ericsson Research and are deeply involved in 4G and 5G development and standardization since the early days of 3G research. Johan Skold works at Ericsson Research and are deeply involved in 4G and 5G development and standardization since the early days of 3G research.
