      CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) is the system of choice for
      wireless communications where multiple access is needed. It is
      tolerant of interference, provides good quality of service, and is
      comparatively secure. In addition, there are economies in bandwidth
      efficiency and battery life. CDMA is well positioned to be the
      backbone of advanced telecommunications services.

      Chapter one outlines these and other advantages of CDMA, as well as
      explaining the basics of TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) and FDMA
      (Frequency Division Multiple Access). Keying and Direct Sequence
      Spread Spectrum are reviewed in chapter two, which is heavy on math
      and seemingly aimed at engineering students. There is a brief
      discussion of voice encoding, and more math, in chapter three.
      Chapter four presents an interesting look at the combination of
      signals in time and space, and at other factors required for the best
      transmission and reception.

      Chapter five starts to look at the components of the IS 95 CDMA system
      architecture, and at Telecommunications Research standard 45/46 on
      which it is based. The air interface is examined in chapter six.
      Implementation of CDMA in existing AMPS systems, and the channel
      requirement, is reviewed in chapter seven. The call setup process,
      signalling and service management, soft handoff and power control, and
      security and identification are covered in chapters eight through

      Chapter twelve looks at engineering models for network and antenna
      siting. Link capacity is discussed in chapter thirteen, both in terms
      of forward (base station to mobile) and reverse traffic, and in the
      tradeoffs made to accommodate functions such as soft handoff. Related
      wireless data protocols are listed in chapter fourteen. Chapter
      fifteen closes off with a look at advanced services to be offered in
      CDMA 2000.

      This book clearly presents the advantages of CDMA, and the options
      available for the future.
