INTRODUCTION TO WIRELESS AND MOBILE SYSTEMS-free e book
Intended for undergraduate and graduate courses in wireless communications for Computer Science and Engineering students. Wireless and mobile communications is one of the most active areas in the EE, CE and CS curriculum. This rapidly developing course is currently a technical elective, but one of the most popular due to the huge demand for engineers and computer scientists who can work in the area. Most courses are now taught using professional books, or books written on selected areas at the graduate level.
This is the first Wireless and Mobile Systems text written for Computer Science and Engineering students (as opposed to Electrical Engineering graduate students). The authors explain the general principles of how wireless systems work, how mobility is supported, what is the underlying infrastructure and what interactions are needed among different functional components. Appropriate for undergraduate or graduate courses, the chapter topics focus on qualitative descriptions and the realistic explanations of relationships between wireless systems and performance parameters. Rather than offering a thorough history behind the development of wireless technologies or an exhaustive list of work being carried out, the authors help EE, CE and CS students learn about this exciting technology and understand how a cell phone starts working as soon as they get out of an airplane
