UMTS is not about Technology, it is about Services...

The UMTS or 3G environment is the ultimate convergence of fixed and mobile, voice and data, content and delivery. The result will be the largest and most complex communications system that man has designed. If you want a challenge then this is the industry to be in.

Services for UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) or 3G (3rd Generation mobile networks) is a book about the near future, where UMTS allows mobile phones and other devices for communication, entertainment, personalised services, utility and fun to be used in new ways. While it is difficult to predict the potential of UMTS in the future in a precise way, broad categories and general service ideas are emerging. This book looks at over 200 of these possible applications and provides more detailed scenarios for over 100 of them. It explores these ideas in depth, with suggestions on how to create exciting and viable services for a new world.

This book intends to answer many of the current UMTS service questions as well as introduce new ideas and concepts to enable operators to create a winning UMTS services strategy.
