This book addresses the planning and optimization of heterogeneous wireless systems in indoor environments Heterogeneous Wireless Systems in Indoor Environments discusses the planning and optimization of heterogeneous wireless systems in indoor environments. The book assesses the criteria required to adequately deploy and to further optimize the operation of the wireless systems in terms of coverage, capacity and quality of service. Multiple systems, such as WSN, WLANS and HSPA/LTE networks are also described. Furthermore, the book includes information on the indoor propagation environment and transceiver design, as well as introductory information in the underlying technologies (e.g. WPANs, WBANs, LTE, HSPA). Finally, the authors provide a complete approach to the topic from physical layer up to system level.
* Discusses heterogeneous wireless systems, from WLAN, WBAN, WPAN and 3G to 4G systems and their interaction * Describes multiple systems such as Wireless Sensor Networks, WLAN and HSPA/LTE networks * Offers a top-down approach, from the physical layer to system level design, stressing the importance of optimized power consumption as well as system performance * Addresses transceiver design, in definition of ultra low power consumption scenarios, typical of WSNs * Explores applications in future domotic control systems and their possible interaction with femtocell deployment * Demonstrates the deployment and optimization of the operation of the wireless system operation in terms of coverage, capacity and quality of service A valuable resource for Professionals in the wireless systems area, students at MSc level in EE, practicing engineers, radio engineers, research and deployment teams
