Antennas for Base Stations in Wireless Communications

by: Zhi Ning Chen, Kwai-Man Luk


Abstract: The latest in advanced antenna technologies for modern wireless communications systems. Written by a global team of expert contributors, this book offers details on the wide-range of antennas used in today’s wireless communication networks. Coverage includes low-cost suspended plate antennas, combined complementary antennas, electrical controlled antennas, multiple-input-multiple-output antenna systems, and smart antenna systems. Capacity optimization technology of antennas, electronically steerable antenna array systems, and broadband circularly polarized antennas are also covered. Antennas for Fixed Base-stations in Wireless Communicationspresents a complete picture of advanced modern base station antenna technology from fundamentals to engineering, and highlights new technologies in antenna design with enhanced performance. Real-world case studies provide you with practical examples that can be applied to your own system designs.
