From the Back Cover

Mobile wireless applications are a good way to increase productivity, improve customer service and streamline business processes. 3G mobile applications, however, bring a unique challenge: ensuring adequate in-building coverage.

Indoor Radio Planning provides an overview of mobile networks systems and coverage solutions for cellular networks in buildings. The background of GSM, UMS and HSPA cellular systems technology are presented and form the  backdrop of the main discussion as to why indoor coverage is needed and how it is best implemented. Basic passive distributed antenna systems (DAS) through to advanced fiber optic systems are discussed in detail, giving the reader a good understanding of all the available solutions. In addition, there is a section covering multi-operator systems, as this is becoming a more and more utilized approach, Other sections cover aspects such as how to upgrade passive DAS from 2G to 3G, a noise analysis, link budgets, traffic calculations and software tools that can be used to provide help with creating in-building designs. These topics are examined from the basic considerations to advanced indoor planning.

One of the first texts dedicated solely to indoor radio planning, it will be of essential reading to engineering and planning personnel working for mobile operator,s with the book being written with radio planners in mind throughout. Indoor Radio Planning will also be of interest to companies who service and manufacture equipment for operators such s suppliers of indoor coverage systems and vendors of base stations for mobile coverage.

  • A unique, single-source reference for both the theoretical and practical knowledge behind indoor radio planning
  • Written by a leading practitioner in the field with more than 15 years of experience
  • Based on real life examples and implemented systems and results
  • Analyzes co-existence of mobile services and inter modulation analysis
  • Outlines the key parameters and metrics for designing DAS for GSM, DCS, UMTS and HSPA

Format: Hardcover
I havn't read the whole book yet, but I use some parts of the material in function of my interests. This is an excellent practical book about a topic that is rarely developed in any book (if any) and that you have to learn the hard way. You receive directly real-life examples and real designs that you can apply in your RF engineer work. I recommend strongly this book. I know the book seems expensive, but you can acquire good knowledge in RF indoor design, which should ease your work. My only question is: when a book about tunnel RF design (with time dispersion explanation, ... another topic never developed in any books).

This book has a lot of piddly little mistakes like a qualified (engineer) editor / reviewer should have caught. But it is very practical and incredibly helpful for anyone seeking to understand the real design / cost issues of in-building cell coverage. I look forward to the author's revision (if any) for LTE.
