A wide range of real-world examples illustrates the theoretical aspects of this tutorial introduction to digital mobile wireless networks. In particular, 2.5G and 3G packet-switched systems are discussed in detail, as are wireless LANs and personal-area networks. Many worked examples and homework exercises are provided, and a solutions manual is available for instructors. The book is an ideal text for electrical engineering and computer science students taking courses in wireless communications. It will also be an invaluable reference for practicing engineers.Read more

"[Five stars] I rarely award books top marks, but there is no doubt that this one fully deserves it. If you are looking for one book to both cover wireless fundamentals and give you details of the key wireless systems in use today, I'd strongly recommend this one."
