Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is a collection of independent surveys of ten to 30 pages, grouped into three parts. … it is highly accessible to non-technical readers. I recommend it to decision makers in the wireless telecommunications industry who want some understanding of important technical developments in their area.” (Klaus Galensa, Computing Reviews, January, 2014)
