Book Description

The bestselling first edition of Encyclopedia of Wireless and Mobile Communications filled a need for a comprehensive yet concise resource that made important information easily accessible. Updated and expanded to keep pace with the ever-evolving field of telecommunications, this second is poised to do the same.

From acoustic communications and data compression to optical fibers and wireless sensor networks, this new edition provides 59 new entries on essential topics in the wireless and mobile communications field. Collectively, approximately 230 entries encompass the foundations, technologies, applications, and emerging elements of this dynamic field.

Containing the contributions of more than 400 leading experts from around the world, this reference covers the complete range of both fundamental and advanced issues in telecommunications—including 3G and 4G systems, OFDM systems, and emerging applications.
