Mobile and Personal Satellite Communications Proceedings of the 1st European Workshop on Mobile/Personal Satcoms (EMPS'94)

Mobile and Personal Satellite Communications Proceedings of the 1st European Workshop on Mobile/Personal Satcoms (EMPS'94)

Author: Fulvio Ananasso, Francesco Vatalaro Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 27/03/1995

The shift from network-oriented to user-oriented services in the 80s and early 90s has increased the penetration of satellite services into the user community. Parallel to this, worldwide interest has arisen in Personal Communication Services (PCS), where satellites play a crucial role in the provision of PCS all over the world. Satellite Personal Communication Networks (S-PCN) are extremely attractive because they can serve a significant sector of the rapidly growing cellular market. This publication presents market perspectives and technological aspects in relation to satellite mobile and personal communication services. Papers were written by some of the most acclaimed European specialists in PCS. They present basic concepts and the latest research results.

Satellite Communications Principles and Applications

Author: David Calcutt, Laurie Tetley Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/08/1994

Satellites are increasingly used for global communications, as well as for radio and television transmissions. With the growth of mobile communications, and of digital technology, the use of satellite systems is set to expand substantially and already all students of electronics or communications engineering must study the subject. This book steers a middle path between offering a basic understanding of the process of communication by satellite and the methodology used; and the extensive mathematical analysis normally adopted in similar texts. It presents the basic concepts, using as much mathematical content as is necessary to make the process understandable. The principles introduced are backed up by examples of actual applications showing how professional systems engineers have achieved the required system performance capabilities. The practical systems chosen are representative of modern day applications and comprise an international communications system, an international maritime system and a regional system.

Business Earth Stations for Telecommunications Walter L. Morgan and Denis Rouffet This practical guide provides telecommunications managers with the basic information and procedures needed to configure a telecommunications network to meet the communications needs of their organization. It offers invaluable insights into the planning needs of managers, manufacturers, sellers, and installers of microterminals. The authors give you a complete overview of microterminal technology for the next decade, including: their history and nature, why they are used, who uses them and how service is provided, potential applications, an overview of the U.S. microterminal market, a look at network operators, and the economics of microterminal versus terrestrial services. 1988 (0 471-63556-1) 234 pp. A Basic Atlas of Radio-Wave Propagation Shigekazu Shibuya Now, in one source, planners and designers of telecommunications operating organizations can get direct guidelines for radio system planning and design. Carefully organized to present basic concepts of radio-wave propagation and system design, this indispensable work fully details even the most difficult mathematical theories and equations with graphic presentations that beginners and non-specialists will find particularly helpful. It presents all of the essential design elements required for VHF, UHF, and SHF radio in easy-to-follow chart form. In addition, every problem in this book can be explored using a computer. 1987 (0 471-88183-X) 778 pp. Radio System Design for Telecommunications (1-100 GHz) Roger L. Freeman Here's how to plan, engineer, and design analog and digital radiolinks in the point-to-point telecommunications service. Telecommunications expert Roger Freeman covers every aspect of radio system design used in telecommunications, including siting criteria, hardware layout, performance predictions, links and system analysis, facility planning, and frequency assignment information. The book also describes how radiolinks operate and how to select the necessary performance parameters and equipment specifications to meet the needs of various customers. 1987 (0 471-81236-6) 560 pp.
