Preface to The Telecommunications Handbook


The evolution of mobile telecommunications is breathtaking. (The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen)

It is also an excellent indicator of technical advances in general – as computers and processors evolve, there is an impact on telecommunications solutions with an ever-growing need for capacity and data rates

Knowing that mobile communications were still only utilized by a small group of privileged people back in the 1980s, it is fascinating to realize the current speed of the development of telecommunications networks and devices both technically as well as for business opportunities.

It is actually hard to find any other business area which has changed the lifestyle of so many in such a short time period. (The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen)

Presently, the majority of the global population has a mobile phone whilst the utilization of the Internet is growing exponentially – all this only within a couple of decades! Who would want to return any more to the era prior to emails and mobile phones? The speed of this evolution has also generated challenges.

Systems are becoming more and more complicated, and it is very hard to establish a complete picture of telecommunications technologies and systems achievement. (The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen)

There are many new technology areas that need to be learned and taken into account in realistic network deployments, such as security and advanced network planning methods.


Furthermore, there is no longer a single concept of fixed and once-and-for-all learning of some areas of telecommunications as new solutions require constant upgrading of knowledge.

The updated understanding of the wider aspects of current and future systems is important for many professionals and higher-level decision-makers because there are increasingly interdependencies along with the evolvement of systems and services. (The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen)

One example is the inclusion of 2G, 3G, 4G, local connectivity and location-based services into smart devices, so knowledge about the respective possibilities as well as limitations of the solutions is essential for service providers, device manufacturers, network architects, and planners, and many more professionals.

Another example is the efficient planning of the transition from older telecom systems as new systems start taking place.

The optimal solution might not be simply a matter of ramping down the previous system to offer maximum capacity for the new one. (The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen)

Instead, utilizing the optimized intermediate solutions for spectral efficient gradual handing over the capacity offered between networks might save a huge amount of money for operators.

One concrete solution for the gradual lowering of GSM spectrum is the VAMOS terminals and base stations which serve a sufficient number of users within a narrower spectrum whilst pre-4G LTE and actual 4G LTE-Advanced may have greater capacity.

It is thus soon highly recommendable for telecom engineers to also start learning 5G! Currently, it is on the design table but as 2020 approaches, more professionals with updated knowledge are needed.

It is a matter of maintaining relevant knowledge for efficient working as the understanding of functionality and end-to-end performance of the complete set of systems gives great assets to optimize user experiences. (The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen)

This Telecommunications Handbook aims to tackle the need prior to the concretization of 5G.

It is a well-known fact that systems evolve so fast that literature tends to become outdated at the moment of publication. (The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen)

Nevertheless, the basics of the relevant systems are valid for the long term, and the presentation of the complete set within one book is justified, especially when the information is useful for a variety of professional profiles in order to understand the interdependencies of the systems.

This The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen PDF book is meant for experienced professionals who are seeking updated information about systems outside their own special area, and also for persons not familiar with practical telecommunications systems, for example, in technical universities and institutes.

The main focus of this The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen PDF book is to combine the information needed in both practical and academic environments: seasoned professionals can get easy access to telecom theories, and students can obtain realistic views of the practicalities of the systems.

Gradually, as systems evolve, new aspects require new editions, but I totally believe that this The Telecommunications Handbook by Jyrki. J. Penttinen PDf book will not be outdated too soon – whilst the systems remain in the markets, their basis as described in this publication will remain relevant.
