Overview

Digital Communications / Edition 1

An excellent introduction and overview of digital communications technology, both wired and wireless.Helps readers understand the mathematical theory behind signal processing as used in modern digital communications systems. Shows how to extend these theoretical signaling concepts into information transmission links which are robust in the presence of noise and other impairments. Investigates how these transmission links can be developed into fixed and mobile data communication systems for voice and video transmission systems. Helps the reader understand queuing theory techniques and their role in designing small and large-scale data transmission networks such as ISDN. Presents extensive background and history. Each chapter includes exercises.Students in advanced courses in communications, electronics or electrical engineering.
