Spectrum and Service Aspects

As part of the introductory part of the book, we will now briefly dwell on two loosely related yet very important issues, i.e. the 3G spectrum allocation and service provision. We will elaborate on the historical development behind today’s choice of frequency bands which, in one way or another, influences solutions provided by optimisation techniques. To complete the overview of 3G, we have also included a section on the way 3G handles service provision by means of bearer and associated quality of service (QoS) parameters. The later also have a profound influence on planning and optimisation techniques.
