A Comprehensive Overview of Wireless Communications
Wireless Communication Networks and Systems covers all types of wireless communications, from satellite and cellular to local and personal area networks. Organized into four easily comprehensible, reader-friendly parts, it presents a clear and comprehensive overview of the field of wireless communications. For those who are new to the topic, the book explains basic principles and fundamental topics concerning the technology and architecture of the field. Numerous figures and tables help clarify discussions, and each chapter includes a list of keywords, review questions, homework problems, and suggestions for further reading. The book includes an extensive online glossary, a list of frequently used acronyms, and a reference list. A diverse set of projects and other student exercises enables instructors to use the book as a component in a varied learning experience, tailoring courses to meet their specific needs.
Convenient organization into four parts: technical background, wireless communication technology, wireless local and personal area networks, and mobile wireless networks and applications.
Animations provide a powerful tool for understanding the complex mechanisms discussed in this book, including forward error correction, signal encoding, and protocols. Over 150 Web-based animations illustrate data communications and protocol concepts.
