3G, GPRS, WAP, MMS, J2EE, J2ME, XML, SMIL, MLP, A-GPS…. What is the big picture? How may we piece these technologies together?
In Next Generation Wireless Applications, Paul Golding bridges the gap between the technologies available today and the services available tomorrow. What is possible with existing technology and techniques? What will ‘mobility’ mean to tomorrow’s customers and how may we begin to create exciting new services today? Rather than covering each technology in detail the author explores their symbiotic potential, explains how, when used in association, the sum may be greater than the parts. He encourages the reader to become a ‘smart integrator’, to become aware of the vast array of possibilities, to think of the opportunities, and to start creating the future.
This book will revolutionise your thinking on:
- Mobile Service Delivery Platforms
- Content networks
- Mobile and smart devices
- Service integration
- Human-Computer interaction and user interfaces
Professional engineers and application developers working in the ‘Wireless’ sector have had to embrace a veritable explosion of technologies in moving from the 2G voice-only world to the Internet-connected 3G universe. This book demonstrates how they might be connected - not in a proscriptive manner - but in an inspiring and motivational way that aims to provoke discussion and new ideas.
Written for strategists, managers, consultants and engineers, this book is also a practitioner’s toolkit giving up-to-date information on accurate location-finding, interesting Java variants, smarter devices, useful protocols and many other mega-components.
"The author has pulled together the disparate corners of wireless to show a meaningful map for the rest of us. This latest work sets Paul apart as a great analyst of monetizing wireless."
—Chris Hare, Digit Wireless
