Telecommunications Demystified provides details of developments in telecommunications, and their underlying theory, are thoroughly examined in this sweeping tutorial. The book first builds a strong mathematical foundation, introduces the basic concepts of analogue and digital telecommunications, and then develops more complex topics such as source and channel coding, baseband and carrier modulation, estimation and synchronization, multiple access schemes, and trellis-coded modulation. Includes several MATLAB® tutorials that permit readers to model various telecommunications systems. Balances a solid theoretical treatment of subjects with practical applications and examples Covers both digital and analogue telecommunications systems, including digital modulation techniques The accompanying material includes MATLAB® tutorials that permit readers to model various telecommunications systems and an electronic version of the book

Lights, Camera, Acrimony!: Physicists and engineers face off over how to make room for more data.

A crowd of thousands had gathered at St. Mark’s Square in Venice, drawn by the prospect of witnessing a telecommunications revolution. In the warm summer evening of June 24, 2011 they watched a video, projected onto the wall of the medieval Doge’s Palace, explaining a new technology that promised to multiply the volume of data carried by radio waves at a stroke. Some 442 meters across the lagoon, a pair of unusual antennas had been mounted on the lighthouse on St George’s Island. At the flick of a switch, a signal leapt from the antennas, accompanied by a rifle shot—the same signal used by Gu

Will Not-Quite-Fiber Make the Grade?

Eric Pfanner and Michael Scaturro East of Ipswich, on a former Royal Air Force base where World War II aces once took off to fight the Luftwaffe, British telecommunications provider BT is testing what it calls the near future of broadband. By the end of the year, thousands of homes will be hooked up to BT’s G.fast networking hardware, which the company says will be enough for customers to stream high-definition TV to multiple sets, download movies onto a laptop, and chat on Skype all at the same time, without any dropouts or buffering. And, not incidentally, it’s a lot cheaper to install than
