Optical and wireless technologies are being introduced into the global communications infrastructure at an astonishing pace. Both are revolutionizing the industry and will undoubtedly dominate its future, yet in the crowded curricula in most electrical engineering programs, there is no room in typical data communications courses for proper coverage of these "next generation" technologies. Optical and Wireless Communications: Next Generation Networks covers both types of networks in a unique presentation designed for a one-semester course for senior undergraduate or graduate engineering students. Part I: Optical Networks covers optical fibers, transmitters, receivers, multiplexers, amplifiers, and specific networks, including FDDI, SONET, fiber channel, and wavelength-routed networks. Part II:Wireless Networks examines fundamental concepts and specific wireless networks, such as LAN, ATM, wireless local loop, and wireless PBXs. This section also explores cellular technologies and satellite communications. Eventually, next generation networks will be as ubiquitous as traditional telephone networks, and today's engineering students must be prepared to meet the challenges of optical and wireless systems development and deployment. Filled with illustrations, examples, and end-of-chapter problems, Optical and Wireless Communications: Next Generation Networks provides a brief but comprehensive introduction to these technologies that will help future engineers build the foundation they need for success.
This textbook takes a unified view of the fundamentals of wireless communication and explains cutting-edge concepts in a simple and intuitive way. An abundant supply of exercises make it ideal for graduate courses in electrical and computer engineering and it will also be of great interest to practising engineers.
The First ICST International Workshop on Security in Emerging Wireless Commu- cation and Networking Systems (SEWCN 2009) was held in Athens, Greece, Sept- ber 14, in conjunction with SecureComm 2009. SEWCN 2009 was sponsored by the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications En- neering (ICST). The Workshop Chairs were Qijun Gu from Texas State University- San Marcos, USA, and Wanyu Zang from Western Illinois University, USA. The workshop invited 20 researchers from academia and industry around the world in the areas of networking and security to form the Program Committee. The workshop received nine submissions and each submission received two or three double-blind reviews. The review process started on July 6 and ended on July 27. In all, 21 reviews were received. Based on the review scores and comments, seven papers with average score 0 or better were accepted for presentation and inclusion in the workshop proceedings. The workshop emphasized new ideas for secure architectures and protocols to - hance the emerging wireless systems. The accepted papers cover topics on applied cryptography, key management, vulnerability analysis, privacy, authentication, and intrusion detection for emerging wireless systems. The papers were presented in two sessions, chaired by Nikolaos Preve from the National Technical University of A- ens, Greece, and Theofilos Chrysikos from the University of Patras, Greece.

This thesis focuses on the key technologies involved in magnetically coupled Wireless Power Transfer (WPT). Starting from the basic structures and theories of WPT, it addresses four fundamental aspects of these systems. Firstly, it analyzes the factors affecting transfer efficiency and compares various methods for reducing the working frequency. Secondly, it discusses frequency splitting and offers a physical explanation. Thirdly, it proposes and assesses three multiple-load transfer structures. Lastly, it investigates WPT systems with active voltage-source and current-source load. As such, the thesis offers readers a deeper understanding of WPT technology, while also proposing insightful new advances.
