About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Covers all the major enabling technologies for current and next-generation cellular communications and wireless networking systems, such as MIMO and smart antennas
    • Uniquely emphasizes practical and state-of-the-art techniques throughout, rather than focussing on mathematical foundations
    • The first wireless textbook to provide detailed introductions to RF subsystems and antennas, and their design and selection, signal processing for wireless communications, and source coding, including speech/audio coding and image/video coding
