About the Author

Dr Andrew Richardson has many years of experience in digital communication systems, having worked for Philips, Nokia and Simoco on both 2nd and 3rd generation mobile 'phone systems. Since 1999 he has run his own consultancy, Imagicom Ltd, offering design and training services in telecommunication systems technology.


'... as with many UMTS-related books, this text focuses on the operation of the air interface. However, the subject is addressed with the appropriate level of detail in order to be an excellent companion, particularly to those working in component and system design. It presents and organized and clear examination of the topic, certainly more approachable than the related specifications ... through sharing his experience in this area, the author presents a valuable and comprehensive treatment of the subject.' IEE Communications Engineer 'This is a good handbook with precise technical information, although some basics of WCDMA are also gathered in the first part.' IEEE Radio Communications
