Wireless Connectivity: An Intuitive and Fundamental Guide Author Petar Popovski

Wireless connectivity has become an indispensable part, acommodity associated with the way we work and play. The latestdevelopments, the 5G, next-generation Wi-Fi and Internet of Thingsconnectivity, are the key enablers for widespread digitalization ofpractically all industries and public sector segments. This immensedevelopment within the last three decades have been accompanied bya large number of ideas, articles, patents, and even myths. Thisbook introduces the most important ideas and concepts in wirelessconnectivity and discusses how these are interconnected, whilst themathematical content is kept minimal. The book does not follow theestablished, linear structure in which one starts from thepropagation and channels and then climbs up the protocol layers.The structure is, rather, nonlinear, in an attempt to follow theintuition used when one creates a new technology to solve a certainproblem.The target audience is:Students in electronics, communication, and networkingWireless engineers that are specialized in one area, but wantto know how the whole system works, without going through all thedetails and mathComputer scientists that want to understand the fundamentals ofwireless connectivity, the requirements and, most importantly, thelimitationsEngineers in energy systems, logistics, transport and othervertical sectors that are increasingly reliant on wirelesstechnology
