This comprehensive all-in-one reference work covers the fundamental physical aspects of mobile communications and explains the latest techniques employed in second and third generation digital cellular mobile radio systems.

Mobile radio communications technology has progressed rapidly and it is now capable of the transmission of voice, data and image signals. This new edition reflects the current state-of-the-art by featuring:

* Expanded and updated sections on voice compression techniques, interleaving and channel coding methods, quaternary frequency shift keying, continuous phase modulation methods, Viterbi equalisation and slow frequency hopping as well as extended coverage of the GSM system.

* Three new chapters on wireless multimedia, third generation systems and on WATM respectively

As in the first edition, this latest volume continues to cover important topics such as radio propagation, multiple access methods and, on a higher level, cordless telecommunications and teletraffic issues.

This book will prove invaluable to mobile communication engineers, designers, researchers, and students in the design, operation and research of second and third generation systems and wireless LANs.
