CT2 Standard for Cordless Telephones. US Wireless Cable Television. Summary of Standards Throughout the World. The Gaussian Approximation. Untitled Document Preface The second edition of this text has been written to initiate the newcomer to wireless personal communications, one of the fastest growing fields in the engineering world. Technical concepts which are at the core of design, implementation, research, and invention of wireless communication systems are presented in an order that is conducive to understanding general concepts, as well as those specific to current and evolving wireless communication systems and standards.
Wireless Communications: Principles and Practice, 2nd Edition | InformIT
This text is based upon my experiences as an educator, researcher, technical trainer, and consultant, and continues to be modeled from an academic course first developed for electrical engineering students in , when there were fewer than five million cellular subscribers worldwide. This text continues to evolve, and has been modified and updated since its first edition, making it a useful book for practicing engineers, as well as for researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students. The text has been prepared to provide fundamental treatment about many practical and theoretical concepts that form the basis of wireless communications, and has been designed for easy but thorough treatment of vital material that all wireless practitioners must be comfortable with.
I have tried to emphasize the technical concepts with worked example problems, and numerous, carefully crafted homework problems at the end of each chapter that are based on real-world industry issues.
The second edition contains dozens of new homework problems and examples, as well as up-to-the minute technical details of the many emerging wireless standards throughout the world, making this book particularly useful for industry short-courses or state-of-the-art academic classroom use. References to journal articles are used liberally throughout this text to enable the interested reader to delve into additional reading that is always required to master any field.
To support newcomers to the wireless field, and at the request of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers IEEE , I have also prepared a low-cost two volume compendium of many of the original journal articles that first taught the fundamentals that are now used throughout the wireless industry--this compendium series is a useful, but not required, supplement to this text. Whether you intend to use this book for individual study, or for classroom use, or for use as a handbook, this text has been written as a complete, self-contained teaching and reference book.
The numerous examples and problems found throughout the text have been provided to help the reader solidify the material. This book has been designed for the student or practicing engineer who is already familiar with technical concepts such as probability, communication theory, and basic electromagnetics.

However, like the wireless communications industry itself, this book combines material from many different technical disciplines, so it is unlikely that any one person will have had introductory courses for all of the topics covered. To accommodate a wide range of backgrounds, important concepts throughout the text are developed from first principles, so that readers learn the foundations of wireless communications.
This approach makes it possible to use this book as a handbook or as a useful teaching tool in a classroom setting. The material and chapter sequence in this text have been adapted from an entry-level graduate course which I first taught in at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
