Wireless Communication Systems: From RF Subsystems to 4G Enabling Technologies
This practically-oriented, all-inclusive guide covers all the major enabling techniques for current and next-generation cellular communications and wireless networking systems. Technologies covered include CDMA, OFDM, UWB, turbo and LDPC coding, smart antennas, wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, MIMO, and cognitive radios, providing readers with everything they need to master wireless systems design in a single volume. Uniquely, a detailed introduction to the properties, design, and selection of RF subsystems and antennas is provided, giving readers a clear overview of the whole wireless system. It is also the first textbook to include a complete introduction to speech coders and video coders used in wireless systems. Richly illustrated with over 400 figures, and with a unique emphasis on practical and state-of-the-art techniques in system design, rather than on the mathematical foundations, this book is ideal for graduate students and researchers in wireless communications, as well as for wireless and telecom engineers.
What people are saying - Write a review
A really good text/ reference book. It outlines the history of 4G and pre-4G wireless technologies, the various methods of signal processing in communication systems context and the future of wireless communication systems (4G, beyond 4G research etc.).
This book is ideal for PhD or people seeking to pursue a career in telecommunication, as it provides profound knowledge on the overall operations of a standard wireless communication system.
