Wireless telecommunication systems generate a huge amount ofinterest. In the last two decades, these systems have experiencedat least three major technological leaps, and it has becomeimpossible to imagine how society was organized without them. Inthis book, we propose a macroscopic approach on wireless systems, and aim at answering key questions about power, data rates, multiple access, cellular engineering and access networksarchitectures.
We present a series of solved problems, whose objective is toestablish the main elements of a global link budget in severalradiocommunications systems.
1. Radio Propagation.
2. F/TDMA and GSM.
3. CDMA and UMTS.
4. OFDM and LTE.
5. MIMO and Beamforming.
8. Digital Communications Fundamentals.
9. Erlang B Tables.
