This timely new resource presents an overview of the electronics of mobile network backhaul. Infrastructure planning, architecture evolution, digital controls, and countermeasures are all presented highlighting the building blocks of specific backhaul features. Tx and Rx design and antenna requirements and covered while examining the overall construction of the microwave radio hardware blocks. Single blocks are explored: the antenna, the analog transmitter and receiver, and the modem, recalling the most important aspects of transport networks and microwave link dimensioning. Essential theory is provided for each hardware block with an emphasis on present solutions.
Authored by academic and industrial experts in the field, development and design engineers will benefit from the practical guidance in solving realistic issues and providing useful tips throughout the design process. This book guides readers through the historical evolution of microwave radios and the components of the next generation of mobile networks.
