Wireless Personal Communications: Advances in Coverage and Capacity present a broad range of topics in wireless communications. The majority of the chapters are relevant to creating higher capacity (spectrally efficient) systems with greater coverage. Topics include adaptive antenna array measurements and algorithm comparisons, Cellular Digital Packet Data deployment guidelines, speech coding techniques, wireless system design methodology, and propagation measurements in hostile or previously unexplored channels.
Wireless Personal Communications: Advances in Coverage and Capacity is organized into three sections. Section I covers novel wireless systems and hardware and focuses on adaptive arrays, wireless hardware methodology, and deployment guidelines for CDPD among other topics. Section II focuses on Code Division Multiple Access (CMDA) and DSP techniques, both of which are used to facilitate more efficient utilization of the spectrum under adverse channel conditions. This section includes techniques for mitigating interference and multipath. Section III deals with propagation and system design issues. Propagation measurements are presented and include results for the channel characteristics at the New York Mercantile Exchange with closely packed people and hostile electromagnetic interference, to measurements of concrete slabs.
Wireless Personal Communications: Advances in Coverage and Capacity serves as an excellent reference source and may be used as a text for advanced courses on the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Contains papers from a June 1996 symposium held in Blacksburg, Virginia, concentrating on the creation of higher capacity, spectrally efficient systems with greater coverage. Section I covers novel wireless systems and hardware and focuses on adaptive arrays, wireless hardware methodology and guidelines for CDPD. Section II examines techniques for use under adverse channel conditions, and discusses ways to mitigate interference and multipath. Section III deals with propagation and system design issues and contains propagation measurement results from real-life situations. Can be used as a reference or as a text for advanced courses.
