Scope: Mobile communication is one of the most important applications in the telecommunications and IT field, and spread spectrum technology brings together radio communication, information processing and data routing.
This book presents the concepts of modern mobile communication and discusses the user requirements and operational environment which influence mobile systems design, with a focus on the mobility issues for a decentralised network topology and the effects of spread spectrum modulation on radios used in packet-switched networks. Providing vital information for all those in the mobile systems field, the book is supported by detailed case study information to illustrate the practical issues involved in implementing the technology.
"To conclude, the book is well worth reading. It serves as a broad introduction,...and will appeal to the reader who wants technical content without too many theoretical details. It would serve well as an overview for professional engineers and new postgraduate students in telecommunications. The authors share generously of their knowledge gained from many years of experience in implementing packet radio, especially in military applications where interference and security are emphasized."
