Why You Need This Book: Introduction to OFDM Receiver Design and Simulation with Y.J. Liu

Recently, the OFDM technology has advanced significantly. It has found applications in 5G using concepts such as OFDM-MIMO, Massive MIMO and others. However, OFDM is still the fundamental building block of all these advanced applications. To help the readers get up to speed in stepping into the 5G era, this book entitled “Introduction to OFDM …

Exploring The Technical Foundations of IoT with Boris Adryan, Dominik Obermaier, and Paul Fremantle

The Technical Foundations of IoT by Boris Adryan, Dominik Obermaier, Paul Fremantle provides an overview of the technical aspects of the Internet of Things (in fact, most other modern technology!), offering more theory and background information than is usually required for non-specialists in interdisciplinary development teams. That is, product design specialists are going to get an introduction …

Smart Fibre from Space – Moving the Internet into the Galaxy? with Geoff Varrall

Once in a while we find ourselves writing about topics which are relatively new to us. My comfort zone as an author is RF engineering but suddenly it seems that free space optical wireless is becoming important in space and terrestrial networks. Counter intuitively this became obvious when looking at the economics of subsea fibre …

Problem Solving 101: Next-Generation Emergency Services with Barbara Kemp and Bart Lovett

At Artech House, we ask our authors what problems their books can help readers solve. In this series, we share what our authors aim to do in their writing. Read on to find out what Barbara Kemp and Bart Lovett, who wrote The Handbook of Next-Generation Emergency Services, had to say: What are some problems your …

Artech House Releases the Definitive Resource for In-Band Full-Duplex Wireless Systems with Kenneth Kolodziej

This book is the definitive resource for in-band full-duplex (IBFD) wireless systems. IBFD technology allows devices to transmit and receive signals on the same frequency at the same time, but has intentionally been avoided in a wide range of traditional systems. This is due to the significant self-interference that is generated by a transmitter co-located …

Next-Generation Emergency Services, the current state of emergency services; how to plan and execute a move to a standards-compliant NG9-1-1 service with Barbara Kemp and Bart Lovett

Waves, either electromagnetic (EM) or acoustic (AC) interact with objects and scatter. The addition of incident and scattered fields form the total fields. Scattered fields include (but not limited with) reflections, refractions, and diffractions. The Handbook of Next Generation Emergency Services by Barbara Kemp and  Bart Lovett is about diffraction modeling and simulation. Scattering has gained …

Applications of Geographic Information Systems for Wireless Network Planning with Francisco Saez De Adana, Josefa Gómez Pérez, Abdelhamid Tayebi Tayebi and Juan Casado Ballesteros

A Geographic Information System (GIS) is a computer system that gathers, analyses, stores, checks, manipulates, manages, and visualizes data related to spatial locations on Earth’s surface. A GIS works as a database with geographic information (alphanumeric data) that is associated by an identifier common to the graphic objects of digital maps. In this way, when …
