Description

After a period when optical links appeared to become the solution to all transmission problems, the ongoing revolution in the telecommunications sector and the advances in technology have brought microwave links back to center stage.
* Detailed comparison of ITU (International Telecommunications Union) and North American frequency hierarchies, an important topic that has been inadequatly covered
* Contains end -of-chapter problem sets and a solutions manual Includes extensive discussion of error control codes

Index.

“This newly revised edition of the classic Artech House book, “Microwave Radio Transmission Design”, provides a current, comprehensive treatment of the subject with a focus on applying practical knowledge to real-world networks . . . This practical book offers proven advice that helps save engineers time and money when developing new networks, and reduces the risk of encountering problems during design and planning.”  (Voip-video, 11 November 2012)

"This book introduces the reader to the principles and the design of microwave links." (Microwave Journal, May 2003)
