0 Reviews
A description of propagation phenomena in urban, suburban and rural environments to help readers improve the efficiency of wireless communication systems. It considers the full algorithm for radio coverage prediction and cellular characteristic prediction to increase performance of radio and cellular map design. The book is designed to help wireless local hoop, stationary and wireless system designers construct radio coverage maps, predict cellular characteristics in communications channels, design and split cellular maps, and predict cellular systems performance in complex, urban environments. It includes analysis of free space propagation over regular and irregular terrain, reflection and diffraction by various obstacles, including hills, buildings and trees, as well as the effects of scattering due to such obstacles and terrain. It emphasizes behaviour of waves in the UHF/L-frequency band throughout.

About the author (2000)

Nathan Blaunstein received his BSc. and MSc. in Radiophysics and Electronics from the State University, Tomsk, and his Ph.D. and DSc. in Radiophysics and Electronics from the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radiowave Propagation Academy of Sciences in Moscow, both in the former USSR. Blaunstein is a professor at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and at Tel-Aviv University, Israel. He is the author of Radio Propagation in Cellular Networks (Artech House, 2000). He has done extensive research in problems of the ionosphere and ionospheric radio propagation for geophysical purposes, diffraction and scattering in various media for purpose of radiolocation, mobile-satellite and terrestrial communications, and for cellular and mobile systems performance and services (2 books, more than 130 articles and 3 patents), being a scientific adviser of Tadiran Telecom, InnoWave, Spectrolink, Magal Security Systems (Israel), Stellar-Senstar, Inc. (Canada), Ancoras (USA). 05l
