340 pages


Whether you are designing for systems based on 2G, 3G, or advanced MIMO technology, you can find the solution you need with this comprehensive reference on applying smart antennas in wireless and mobile communications. The book provides you with a simple yet powerful design methodology that enables you to select the smart antenna approach most suitable for a particular application. Moreover, it offers guidance in designing the appropriate uplink and downlink beamforming algorithms. This practical resource takes a systems approach to smart antenna engineering, detailing how to analyze and evaluate performance of the systems solution you design. It looks at both the uplink and downlink within a system, so you can balance capacity and coverage on both links to improve overall performance. From multiple access techniques and adaptive array systems, to coverage and capacity improvements of wireless networks and smart antenna applications in handsets, the book covers a wide range of critical topics. You also find descriptions of the latest spatial channel models, allowing you to more accurately evaluate system performance.
