Hardback $99.00 Qty:
Written by a leading authority in the communications industry, this single-source reference provides in-depth understanding of the fundamental and advanced principles behind the development of a global personal communication system capable of providing convenient multimedia communications to individuals in every corner of the world. The book explores the behavior of macro-, pico-, satellite-, and overlay-cellular systems and gives you the knowledge you need to successfully address their related transmission system issues and problems. Whether you're a seasoned communications engineer responsible for planning and developing third generation mobile systems (FPLMTS/IMT-2000/UMTS), or a future engineer who needs a basic understanding of wireless-related technologies, you'll find the clearly presented information in this book invaluable. Introductory chapters review statistical radio channel models, present mathematical and analytical models for evaluating co-channel interference probability, discuss multiple and random access protocols, identify and describe a wide range of CDMA systems, and much more. More advanced, solution-oriented sections cover OFDM system applications, analyze MC-CDMA in a wireless environment, outline basic antenna system and diversity schemes, and present an analytical model used to evaluate bit-error probability. You also gain a solid understanding of the theory and applications associated with wireless broadband multimedia communications (WBMC) and satellite communications (SATCOM).
