An Introduction to UMTS: Specifications, Testing and Standards Bodies is the most comprehensive text for practicing engineers and technicians about testing, specification and standards bodies of cellular communications equipment. It is aimed at those responsible for developing and maintaining both mobile and base station units. Each chapter discusses in detail the necessary elements moving to the more advanced components. In addition to testing, specification and standards bodies, readers will learn: the development life cycle of UE and Node-B building blocks; what needs to be tested; when and how testing should be performed; as well as certification formalities, including processes and procedures; and testing tools and languages.
Academic Paper from the year 2014 in the subject Engineering - Communication Technology, language: English, abstract: Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) is a wireless communications technology. As the global economy continues to expand, so does the demand for information. This information needs to be plentiful, diversified, instant, sprinkled and mobile, all at the same time. These mounting demands have proven difficult for existing network capacity, coverage and range also. And this reduces an organizations ability to evolve with changing business and workforce needs. Wireless networks are best suited to meet these challenges because they are resilient, scalable, mobile and cost-effective. It facilitates the network with high-speed, high quality data, voice and video communication, even when users are on the move. The rapid growth of WIFI in the home, enterprise and public hotspot market has given users and service providers alike a new glimpse into what wireless connectivity can deliver, through a single interface, in multiple locations. WIFI realizes the vision of broadband connectivity within the LAN (Local Area Network) and has easy way for new wireless technologies that can deliver the same experience in the MAN (Metropolitan Area Network) and in the WAN (Wide Area Network).
Growing Up with Technology explores the role of technology in the everyday lives of three- and four-year-old children, presenting the implications for the children's continuing learning and development.
Children are growing up in a world where the internet, mobile phones and other forms of digital interaction are features of daily life. The authors have carefully observed children's experiences at home and analysed the perspectives of parents, practitioners and the children themselves. This has enabled them to provide a nuanced account of the different ways in which technology can support or inhibit learning.
Drawing on evidence from their research, the authors bring a fresh approach to these debates, based on establishing relationships with children, families and educators to get insights into practices, values and attitudes.
A number of key questions are considered, including:
Growing Up with Technology is strongly grounded in a series of research projects, providing new ways of thinking about how children's learning with technology can be supported. It will be of great interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students on a range of courses including childhood studies, and those with a particular interest in the use of technology in education. Parents, practitioners and researchers will also find this a fascinating and informative read.
