Wireless communications continue to attract the attention of both research community and industry. Since the first edition was published significant research and industry activities have brought the fourth generation (4G) of wireless communications systems closer to implementation and standardization.
"Advanced Wireless Communications" continues to provide a comparative study of enabling technologies for 4G. This second edition has been revised and updated and now includes additional information on the components of common air interface, including the area of space time coding , multicarrier modulation especially OFDM, MIMO, cognitive radio and cooperative transmission.
Ideal for students and engineers in research and development in the field of wireless communications, the second edition of Advanced Wireless Communications also gives an understanding to current approaches for engineers in telecomm operators, government and regulatory institutions.
New features include:Brand new chapter covering linear precoding in MIMO channels based on convex optimization theory. Material based on game theory modelling encompassing problems of adjacent cell interference, flexible spectra sharing and cooperation between the nodes in ad hoc networks. Presents and discusses the latest schemes for interference suppression in ultra wide band (UWB) cognitive systems. Discusses the cooperative transmission and more details on positioning.
This book adopts a logical approach, beginning each chapter with introductory material, before proceeding to more advanced topics and tools for system analysis. Its presentation of theory and practice makes it ideal for readers working with the technology, or those in the midst of researching the topic.Covers mobile, WLAN, sensor, ad hoc, bio-inspired and cognitive networks as well as discussing cross-layer optimisation, adaptability and reconfigurability Includes hot topics such as network management, mobility and hand-offs, adaptive resource management, QoS, and solutions for achieving energy efficient wireless networks Discusses security issues, an essential element of working with wireless networks Supports the advanced university and training courses in the field and includes an extensive list of references
Providing comprehensive coverage of the current status of wireless networks and their future, this book is a vital source of information for those involved in the research and development of mobile communications, as well as the industry players using and selling this technology.
Companion website features three appendices: Components of CRE, Introduction to Medium Access Control and Elements of Queueing Theory
There are several different systems comprising 4G, including adaptive WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access), ATDMA (Adaptive Time Division Multiple Access), Multicarrier (OFDMA) and Ultra Wide Band (UWB) receiver elements. This book provides a comparative study of these technologies and focuses on their future co-existence.
Topics covered include:Space Time Coding, including discussions on diversity gain, the encoding and transmission sequence, the combining s cheme and ML decision rule for two-branch transmit diversity scheme with one and M receivers. Ultra Wide Band Radio, UWB multiple access in Gaussian channels, the UWB channel, UWB system with M-ary modulation, M-ary PPM UWB multiple access, coded UWB schemes, multi-user detection in UWB radio, UWB with space time processing and beam forming for UWB radio. Antenna array signal processing with focus on Space-Time receivers for CDMA communications, MUSIC and ESPRIT DOA estimation, joint array combining and MLSE receivers, joint combiner and channel response estimation and complexity reduction in the wide-band beam forming Channel modeling and measurement, adaptive MAC, adaptive routing and TCP layer are also addressed.
This book will supply the reader with a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between the systems performance, its complexity/reliability and cost-effectiveness. It gives an insight into the impact of existing and new technologies on the receiver structure and provides an understanding of current approaches and evolving directions for personal and indoor communication.
