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.
