Mobile Radio Communications technology is now much more
than just a means to 'untether' the telephone. New 'third wave'
digital mobile systems can already transmit voice, data and image
signals and will soon have the capacity for full mobile multimedia
transmission. The first edition of this title, is now established as
the definitive, all-in-one mobile communications reference
manual. The new edition features a major new section on mobile
multimedia transmission and additional coverage of the GSM
protocol and speech and channel coding.
