PCS (Personal Communication Systems) will provide the convenience of FAX, Email and voice mail in a package similar to cellular phones. This book describes both Personal Communication Systems and mobile networks — and as they are envisioned for the future. KEY TOPICS: The first half of this book covers the theory of wireless communications, presenting the historical background of wireless telephony and the evolution of wireless technologies in the U.S. and Europe. The second half of the book presents the analog and digital (cellular and PCS) systems used in the U.S., Europe, and Japan. MARKET: For wireless engineers and those interested in marketing wireless products in the United States.
