About this book

This book is about the theory and practice of spectrum sharing and is aimed at a wide audience. Although it addresses basic technical issues, the emphasis is on practice rather than theory. In presenting an overall picture of spectrum sharing, this book covers the why--the regulatory aspects as well as the how--the technical aspects. The latter is supported with a theoretical taxonomy of dimensions, modes and means of spectrum sharing and a number of practical cases of spectrum sharing are discussed, using established technologies as examples.

This book should prove accessible to wireless systems designers, RF engineers and protocol developers as well as to planners for large scale wireless LAN deployments. The combination of theoretical explanation and practice based analysis is expected to prove useful for radio spectrum managers and regulators as well as standards development organizations.

Further, this book should prove useful for educators and students in that it provides practice oriented background for the more abstract material presented in textbooks dealing with radio spectrum related theory.



About the authors

Authors: Dr. Luke Qian and Mr. Jan Kruys

The authors have worked together in the subject area for more than 6 years and both have an extensive background in wireless that goes back more than 20 years. Both have invented a number of key wireless technologies and have been granted a number of patents. Both are contributing authors of the book "Emerging Technologies in Wireless LANs" by Cambridge University Press. Both have been deeply involved in the IEEE 802 Committee that developed many wireless LAN technology standards that have found world-wide application.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book will give you an appreciation for the challenges faced in sharing the RF spectrum; and if you work in optics, it will provide good cross-training. … This book offers a unique and balanced perspective; successfully bridging the gap between marketing hype and limited-scope theoretical studies. … In summary, this is an eye-opening book with helpful research suggestions.” (George Fischer, Optics & Photonics News, April, 2012)
