Wireless Communication and Networks is designed as a textbook for students of electronics and communication engineering, as well as computer engineering. The book provides a detailed and holistic coverage of the various aspects and technologies of wireless systems, in addition to the emerging systems and standards.

Divided into four parts, the book provides exhaustive coverage, from fundamental concepts of wireless communication to the latest developments in the field. Beginning with an overview of basic terminologies and principles of wireless communication, Part I discusses cellular theory, which forms the basis for wireless systems. Part II describes the basic characteristics of the wireless channel, impairments and mitigation techniques and channel modeling. Part III explains source coding and channel coding techniques, single- and multi-carrier digital modulation schemes, diversity techniques, equalization methods and multiple access techniques. The last part of the book talks about networking fundamentals, cellular networks and ad-hoc wireless networks.

Owing to its comprehensive coverage of all the relevant topics, including the upcoming areas of wireless communication, the book will also be useful for postgraduate students and practising engineers in the field.
