Overview

Advances in Wireless Communications covers a broad range of topics in the field of wireless communications, with chapters describing state-of-the-art solutions along with basic theoretical studies in information and communications theory. Thus, the book offers a far-reaching panorama of this exciting field.
Contributions have been grouped into six areas. Many of the topics cut across all the protocol layers. In fact, as challenging as the more standard communication theory related problems are, it is the multifaceted and multilayer system problems of wireless and mobile communications that offer the most significant opportunities for breakthroughs.
Advances in Wireless Communications offers an abundance of stimulating ideas and presents state-of-the-art technologies relevant to wireless communications. This book furthers the understanding of this exciting and fast-growing field, and the material presented is useful to students and researchers in their own search for new and better solutions towards the realization of the wireless information age. The book may also be used as a text for advanced courses on the topic.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Combines recent empirical findings and experimental results with basic studies in information and communication theory, often cutting across protocol layers. Covers characterizing and serving mobile users, ATM and broadband, power and energy management, capacity and performance, propagation and traffic modeling, and locating mobile users. Among the specific topics are an information-providing mechanism combining broadcast and on-demand modes in mobile computing environments, a distributed media access control for wireless ATM environments, fast power control in cellular networks based on the short-term correlation of Rayleigh fading, the performance of a medium access control scheme for the reconfigurable wireless networks, a statistical model of spatially-correlated shadow-fading patterns in wireless systems, and locating mobile stations with non-line-of-sight measurements. The 25 papers are from a March 1997 workshop in New Brunswick, New Jersey, the sixth in a series sponsored by Rutger's University. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
