Finally -- a practical guide that explains the numerous RF engineering concepts and technical terms and shows you the reader how they link together into a system design or specific application. Dozens of practical examples and case studies help turn theory into ready-to-implement knowledge. Critical issues such as link budgets, modulation, antennas, filters, receivers, transmitters, communication sites, system design, and technology- specific design guidelines are expertly detailed. By providing the framework for putting together a network design and detailing the real-world factors that need to be considered, this book gives engineers the tools they need to succeed in the rapidly emerging wireless work environment.
