Systems Engineering in Wireless Communications focuses on the area of radio resource management in third generation wireless communication systems from a systems engineering perspective. The authors provide an introduction into cellular radio systems as well as a review of radio resource management issues. Additionally, a detailed discussion of power control, handover, admission control, smart antennas, joint optimization of different radio resources, and cognitive radio networks is offered. This book differs from books currently available, with its emphasis on the dynamical issues arising from mobile nodes in the network. Well–known control techniques, such as least squares estimation, PID control, Kalman filers, adaptive control, and fuzzy logic are used throughout the book.
- Covers radio resource management of 3G wireless communication systems at a systems level
- Addresses wireless communications issues using systems engineering methods
