Introduction to Wireless and Mobile Systems
Cengage Learning, Jun 10, 2010 - Technology & Engineering - 582 pages
This text explains the general principles of how wireless systems work, how mobility is supported, what the underlying infrastructure is and what interactions are needed among different functional components. Designed as a textbook appropriate for undergraduate or graduate courses in Computer Science (CS), Computer Engineering (CE), and Electrical Engineering (EE), Introduction to Wireless and Mobile Systems third edition focuses on qualitative descriptions and the realistic explanations of relationships between wireless systems and performance parameters. Rather than offering a thorough history behind the development of wireless technologies or an exhaustive list of work being carried out, the authors help CS, CE, and EE students learn this exciting technology through relevant examples such as understanding how a cell phone starts working as soon as they get out of an airplane.

So I am forced to take this class by my college and THOUGHT I was taking a class on wireless for network administrators--wrong! This book at least from my point of view would be something to read if one, you wanted to be a cellular engineer, two wanted to know nothing about real-world wireless deployments and uses in the work place or three, really wanted to go to sleep. None of this book so far makes any sense! I have done wireless for years, wireless deployments, site surveys, spectrum analysis for customers etc. I was excited to take this class because I thought it was going to further my knowledge and be of great help. Then, I opened this book. Sorry but NO ONE will ever use the math in this book--no one. The book is TERRIBLE! I am ashamed to even give it one star. What was ANY school thinking when they picked this book to teach INTRO to wireless?
