Microwave Transmission Networks: Planning, Design, and Deployment, Second Edition

by: Harvey Lehpamer


Abstract: Complete, up-to-date coverage of terrestrial point-to-point microwave network planning, design, and deployment. Fully revised for the latest global standards and written for engineers and project managers, Microwave Transmission Networks, Second Edition covers all stages of microwave network build-out from initial planning and feasibility studies to real system deployment. Emphasis is given to practical guidelines. The book discusses planning and creating the business case for microwave networks, including advantages and disadvantages - essential for decision makers. The second edition contains all new diagrams and tables to reflect new and updated standards and information. New sections include new technologies implemented in microwave point-to-point radios (Ethernet), as well as Adaptive Modulation. Newly opened millimeter-wave bands and their applications in licensed and license-exempt broadband microwave radios will be discussed. A new FAQ section has been added regarding microwave links, and information on regulatory and ethical issues and conflicts of interests during international projects is included. Microwave Transmission Networks, Second Edition features fully updated information on today’s global standards, including North American and ITU Content written by a practicing engineer in an easy-to-understand style; Details on new and relevant developments in the field of digital microwave radios. Complete, current coverage of microwave networks: Transmission Network Fundamentals; Basics of Microwave Communications; Microwave Link Design; Planning the Microwave Network; Microwave Network Design; Microwave Deployment; Project Management
