Oct. 1 1997 007059287X 978-0070592872
Finally -- a practical guide that explains the numerous RF engineering concepts and technical terms and shows you the reader how they link together into a system design or specific application. Dozens of practical examples and case studies help turn theory into ready-to-implement knowledge. Critical issues such as link budgets, modulation, antennas, filters, receivers, transmitters, communication sites, system design, and technology- specific design guidelines are expertly detailed. By providing the framework for putting together a network design and detailing the real-world factors that need to be considered, this book gives engineers the tools they need to succeed in the rapidly emerging wireless work environment.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

A ``nuts and bolts'' guide to working with wireless! Here is all the pertinent and practical information that an RF engineer needs to know and understand in day-to-day wireless work. This book clearly explains RF engineering concepts and technical terms and shows how they link together into a system design or specific application. Dozens of practical examples and case studies help turn theory into ready-to-implement knowledge. This hands-on reference covers such critical issues as: radio engineering topics--radio systems, technology platforms, spread spectrum, conventional radio systems, paging, AMPS, TACS, CDMA, IS-136, GSM, and CDPD; link budget components--various propagation models, terrain, diffraction, multipath, delay spread, coverage, ERP, link budget design guidelines; modulation formats--information bandwidth, AM, ASK, sideband, FM, pre- and de-emphasis , FSK, MSK, GMSK, PM, BPSK, QPSK, DQPSK, I&O diagram; antennas--types, base station antennas, performance criteria; filters--types and classifications, filter performance criteria, control theory, filter selection; receivers--AM, FM, PM, receiver system blocks, diversity reception, performance criteria; transmitters--transmitter building blocks, types and classes, modulation, isolation; communication sites--macrocells, microcells, installation, path clearance; system design--RF system design procedures, methodology, technology decision; technology-specific design guidelines--AMPS, CDMA, IS-136, GSM, sample system designs for both cellular and PCS. By providing the framework for putting together a network design and detailing the real-world factors that need to be considered, this book gives directors, managers and RF engineers the tools they will need to succeed in the rapidly emerging wireless work environment, all in one convenient source. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Clint Smith, P.E. is the Vice President of Communications Consulting Service and the co-author of Cellular System Design and Optimization.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful overview of celluar systems May 5 2000
Format:Paperback
This book covers a great deal of ground, which often means a superficial treatment, but Clint Smith has taken a highly practical approach to his subject, concentrating on the how rather than the why of cellular design.
Apart from the technical treatment of design for the three major celluar technologies, AMPS, GSM and CDMA, the book offers excellent practical advice on site and antenna selection and some nuts-and-bolts aspects not found in more formal texts, such as developing checklists, dealing with local authorities, and the post-planning activities of acceptance testing, activation and drive testing.
A sound and useful book for anybody condidering a move into almost any aspect of celluar planning.
