Written by leading authority Ramjee Prasad, this timely new work offers a complete understanding of OFDM technology and applications in wireless communications systems, placing emphasis on wireless LANs and PANs. OFDM is a key technology for beyond 3G communications, promising robust, high capacity, high speed wireless broadband multimedia networks. In this practical resource, established and new technologies are explained clearly and comprehensively, from OFDM basics to a detailed account of a new technique, hybrid OFDM CDMA slow frequency hopping.

The book offers an in-depth treatment of the underlying technologies and applications of PANs and describes and evaluates a practical OFDM system concept. Invaluable for wireless engineers and researchers, this cutting edge new book is a must-have for anyone who needs to understand this critical technology and its implementation in WLANs and WPANs.
