This book provides the reader with a complete coverage of radio resource management for 3G wireless communications

Systems Engineering in Wireless Communications focuses on the area of radio resource management in third generation wireless communication systems from a systems engineering perspective. The authors provide an introduction into cellular radio systems as well as a review of radio resource management issues. Additionally, a detailed discussion of power control, handover, admission control, smart antennas, joint optimization of different radio resources , and cognitive radio networksis offered. This book differs from books currently available, with its emphasis on the dynamical issues arising from mobile nodes in the network. Well-known control techniques, such as least squares estimation, PID control, Kalman filers, adaptive control, and fuzzy logic are used throughout the book.

Key Features:

  • Covers radio resource management of third generation wireless communication systems at a systems level
  • First book to address wireless communications issues using systems engineering methods
  • Offers the latest research activity in the field of wireless communications, extending  to the control engineering community
  • Includes an accompanying website containing MATLAB™/SIMULINK™ exercises
  • Provides illustrations of wireless networks

This book will be a valuable reference for graduate and postgraduate students studying wireless communications and control engineering courses, and R&D engineers.
