    Hi AHMARAFAH,

    The book that I recall was widely recommended in Digital and Wireless Communications courses at University was Mobile Communication Systems by Krzysztof Wesoĺowski. It covers GSM, GPRS and UMTS in a reasonable level of detail including good descriptions and diagrams, however since EDGE technolgy is a somewhat newer area, this book (like many books in this field) doesn't cover it. You are best doing a Google search for EDGE "GSM Evolution" to gain a wider understanding of this area.

    There are a few other books that may be of use, but I cannot recall them at this moment. If I can dig out my notes I will let you know.

    Other recommended textbooks for introductory and advanced courses in digital/wireless communications are:

    Digital Communications - B.Skiar

    Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems - B.P.Lathi

    Digital Communications - J.Proakis

    I cannot personnally recommend any of these texts since I haven't experience of using them, although a collegue does recommend all three as a reference. For the range of subjects you have stated, the book in my previous post is probably the best all round.

    Dave
