If you have to navigate the dangerous waters of wireless, do it with a tech-savvy, predictive manual at your side. That’s Lee's Essentials of Wireless Communications, written by the top-selling author in telecom, William C.Y. Lee. Smart wireless choices are not always obvious; a good deal of conventional wisdom is wrong. This expert guide helps you understand and compare CDM, SSB, CT-2, GSM, TDMA, IDEN (MIRS), LEO-Globalstar v. Iridium, IMT-2000, PCS, Wireless Local Loop (WLL), Wideband v. Narrowband, Analog Cellular, Digital Cellular, Radio Capacity, AMPS, ESS, Propagation System Strength Prediction, CDPD, UPR, and Two-Way Paging. Here’s everything you need for making wireless decisions that work today (and will still work tomorrow) -- from insider data on coming user demands to the tools for writing glitch-free, foresighted technical specs.
Cowritten by Dr. William C. Y. Lee, one of the original pioneers of wireless technology at Bell Labs, this in-depth guide presents accurate, effi cient propagation prediction models to meet the growing demands of next-generation wireless networks. All relevant factors, including terrain, atmospheric conditions, buildings, antenna height, indoor environments, and more, are considered.
Integrated Wireless Propagation Models discusses popular prediction models and provides complete details on the Lee macrocell, microcell, and in-building models. The fi nal chapter ties the three Lee models together to produce an integrated Lee model that can be applied to all mobile environments. Throughout the book, complex mathematical models are translated into practical, easy-to-implement solutions.
