Introduction to Wireless Systems
October 2001, ©2002
This exciting new book addresses the need for a text that presents a broad range of topics on wireless communication systems for undergraduate seniors and first year graduate students. Introduction to Wireless Systems is the first book to provide the basic analytical tools, fundamental physics, and communication theory needed to fully appreciate the field of wireless communications.
Historical Overview of Wireless Systems.
Propagation Characteristics of Wireless Channels.
Modems for Wireless Communications.
Cells and Cellular Traffic.
Fading Mitigation in Wireless Systems.
Appendix A: Topics in Signals and Systems.
Appendix B: Topics in Communications Theory.
Appendix C: Topics in Attenuation and Fading.
Key features of Introduction to Wireless Systems include:
- A familiar, informal style which reviewers have called "pleasant to read." Concise, readable, and informative, the text exposes students to material that is relevant to both academia and industry.
- A wealth of example and homework problems to help illustrate and facilitate the understanding of the fundamental concepts of wireless systems.
- Learning by doingExtensive MATLAB® based exercise sets appear in every chapter.
- Chapter summaries that reinforce concepts covered in the chapter.
- Coverage of a wide array of topics in wireless systems ranging from new propagation models to 3G systems and Bluetooth®.
