Wireless Communication Technologies: New Multimedia Systems is based on a selection of the best papers presented at the recent International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications (PIMRC '99). All of the papers have been extended into full chapters, critiqued, and edited into a unified and structured book. Contributions to this volume are by the leading specialist from their respective fields. The topics represent the newest ideas and research involving wireless multimedia systems and wireless technologies. Part I focuses on key developments and technologies and includes coverage of wireless channel modeling, space-time coding, coding for wireless networks, OFDM, software radio, and spatial and temporal communication theory. Chapters in Part II address many of the new wireless systems currently being standardized; such as, intelligent transport systems, wireless internet, digital TV broadcasting, and IMT-2000. Insights into many of the hot and rapidly developing research topics, such as bluetooth, Mobile IP, GPRS, and others, are discussed. Each chapter includes basic concepts and technical trends in addition to providing extensive technical coverage. Researchers and engineers of wireless communication systems will benefit from insights and results reported in Wireless Communication Technologies: New Multimedia Systems. This work may also be suitable for graduate level courses on Wireless Communication Systems, Cellular Communication Systems, and Mobile Communications.
