For courses in Wireless Communication.

This text provides a self-motivating introduction to wireless communications; it presents topics in a manner consistent with their natural evolution, based on the principle of increasing spectral efficiency of the radio transmission. Wireless Systems begins with a discussion of FDMA systems and follows the evolution through TDMA, CDMA, and SDMA techniques. Engineering principles required for each multiple access strategy are presented parallel with it.

Back cover copy

The rapid growth of wireless communications and its pervasive use are changing the way we communicate in some fundamental ways. Modern Wireless Communications distinguishes itself with the treatment of these techniques in depth and yet in a principled manner that can be taught at the undergraduate level. The order in which these techniques are treated follows the evolution of spectral utilization of the radio channel. As a consequence, much of the material in the book is presented in the order in which it was actually developed, giving students insight into the logic and need for each development.

Features of the Book

Each chapter includes: Examples with detailed solutions Problems that help the reader develop an improved understanding of the issues, along with the answers End-of-chapter problems that provide an abundance of additional examples, whose solutions will further help the reader develop a deeper understanding of the material covered Notes and References that guide the reader to related sources for further reading. Theme Examples, which discuss pertinent issues of practical relevance.

Modern Wireless Communications is indispensable both in a course on wireless communications or as a useful reference for practicing electrical engineers.
