Wireless communication refers to the transfer of information or power between two or more points that are not directly connected by an electrical conductor. Such communication is achieved with the help of radio waves. These waves cover a wide range of distance, from a few meters in the case of Bluetooth to as far as millions of kilometers in the case of deep-space radio communications. Wireless communication can also be achieved via free-space optical communication, sonic waves and electromagnetic induction. Various portable, fixed and mobile applications allow such communication to be established. GPS units, satellite television, radio receivers, cordless telephones and broadcast television are examples of systems that operate on wireless technology. This book outlines the process and applications of wireless communications in detail. It is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex advancements in this field. For someone with an interest and eye for detail, this book covers the most significant topics in the field of wireless communication.

In June 2000, GTEL (Wireless Telecommunications Research Group) at the F- eral University of Ceara ́ was founded by Professor Rodrigo Cavalcanti and his c- leagues with the mission of developing wireless communications technology and impact the development of the Brazilian telecommunications sector. From the start, this research effort has been supported by Ericsson Research providing a dynamic environment where academia and industry together can address timely and relevant research challenges. This book summarized much of the research output that has resulted from GTEL’s efforts. It provides a comprehensive treatment of the physical and multiple access layers in mobile communication systems describing different generations of systems but with a focus on 3G systems. The team of Professor C- alcanti has contributed scienti cally to the development of this eld and built up an impressive expertise. In the chapters that follow, they share their views and kno- edge on the underlying principles and technical trade-offs when designing the air interface of 3G systems. The complexity of 3G systems and the interaction between the physical and m- tiple access layers present a tremendous challenge when modeling, designing, and analyzing the mobile communication system. Herein, the authors tackle this pr- lem in an impressive manner. Their work is very much in line with the developments in 3GPP providing a deeper understanding of the evolution of 3G and also future enhancements.

The application of antenna arrays has been suggested in recent years for mobile communication systems to overcome the problem of limited channel bandwidth, thereby satisfying an ever growing demand for a large number of high bit rate mobiles on communication channels. It has been shown by many studies that when an array is appropriately used in a mobile communication system, it helps in improving the system performance by increasing channel capacity and spectrum efficiency. It also extends the range of coverage, reduces multipath fading, and co-channel interference. These benefits are achieved by adjusting the antenna radiation pattern for a given wireless environment. This book aims at developing novel analytical and simulation models for assessing the performance of a steered-beam adaptive antenna array with an arbitrary number of variably spaced dipole elements operating with incident narrow-band signals of various bandwidths and powers.
