|a"Wireless communications is one of the most important modern technologies and is interwoven with all aspects of our daily lives. When we wake up, we check social media, email, and news on our smartphones. Before getting up, we adjust the room temperature through a Bluetooth-connected thermostat. After we leave the house and activate the Wi-Fi security cameras, we order a rideshare on a phone app that recognizes our location and are driven to a factory where manufacturing robots are connected and controlled via 5G. And that is only the start of the day.... It is thus no wonder that wireless infrastructure, user devices, and networks are among the largest and most critical industries in most countries. As the demands for wireless services constantly increase, so are the requirements for new products, and for engineers that can develop these products and bring them to market. Such engineers need a deep understanding of both the fundamentals that govern the behavior of wireless systems, the current standardized systems implementations, and more recent research developments that will influence the next generation of products. The goal of this book is to help students, researchers, and practicing engineers to acquire, refresh, or update this knowledge. It is designed to lead them from the fundamental principles and building blocks, such as digital modulation, fading, and reuse of spectrum, to more advanced technologies that underly modern wireless systems, such as multicarrier and multiantenna transmission, to a description of the standardized systems dominating 5G cellular, Wi-Fi, and short-range communications, to the cutting-edge research that will form the basis for beyond-5G systems. In brief, the book leads the reader from the fundamentals to beyond 5G"--|cProvided by publisher.
