About the Authors
  • This unique text provides a comprehensive and systematic introduction to the theory and practice of mobile data networks. Covering basic design principles as well as analytical tools for network performance evaluation, and with a focus on system-level resource management, you will learn how state-of-the-art network design can enable you flexibly and efficiently to manage and trade-off various resources such as spectrum, energy, and infrastructure investments. Topics covered range from traditional elements such as medium access, cell deployment, capacity, handover, and interference management, to more recent cutting-edge topics such as heterogeneous networks, energy and cost-efficient network design, and a detailed introduction to LTE (4G). Numerous worked examples and exercises illustrate the key theoretical concepts and help you put your knowledge into practice, making this an essential resource whether you are a student, researcher, or practicing engineer.

    • Comprehensive and accessibly written, covering everything from fundamental principles to practical applications
    • Includes worked examples and end-of-chapter problems, with solutions and lecture slides available online
    • Ideal for self-study use as well as for taught courses
