This book presents a practical design method for cellular systems, focusing on antenna design and propagation in different scenarios, with particular emphasis on base station (BS) and mobile terminals. Written by an expert in antenna measurement for mobile systems, the book fully details the fundamentals of and design considerations for both antennas and propagation, which is not commonly found together in one resource.
The book helps you understand the practical design procedures of mobile communication antenna systems based on the propagation estimation by measurements and simulation. You will learn all the required knowledge and background for the research and development of current and future systems, and a host of other essential considerations and conditions pertaining to antenna and propagation.
This is an excellent book for engineers working for cellar system operators, engineers working for manufacturing companies of smart phones and base station systems, and graduate students majoring antennas and propagation.
