    Third generation (3G) mobile networks are due to become reality in the next few years as governments world-wide start to auction or `release' new spectrum to new and existing cellular operators. A major differentiation of 3G over second generation networks is the provision of multiple-data-rate services, higher spectrum efficiency and greater flexibility of the air interface. This paper addresses ... View full abstract»

    A vision is presented for a fully IP-based mobile network which goes beyond UMTS/IMT-2000. A top-to-bottom design approach is introduced that is capable of offering new and innovative services and applications to both fixed and mobile users efficiently, cost effectively and in a user-friendly manner. Some issues and examples in the design steps following this new approach are discussed. It is clea... View full abstract»

    The concept of self-organisation in wireless networks is introduced. The paper proposes planning and deployment cost, capacity, coverage, flexibility and future potential as the criteria by which wireless topologies and resource management strategies should be validated. It discusses numerous techniques that can be considered as self-organising and evaluates the suitability of these techniques in ... View full abstract»

    As the introduction of third generation (3G) mobile communications systems is expected to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary it is vital to establish a solid business case for 3G. The old business model of `coverage, coverage, coverage' will evolve to one of `capacity, capability and content' and a thorough evaluation will have to be made of the volume of expected usage, the value that cust...

    To achieve high capacity and to support high-data-rate services in the terrestrial access network (UTRAN) of the third generation Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS), it is essential to employ some advanced transceiver techniques at the base stations. Three such techniques are presented: adaptive antennas, multistage parallel interference cancellers and a new hybrid scheme. The opera... View full abstract»
