About this Book

This unique book reviews the future developments of short-range wireless communication technologies

Short-Range Wireless Communications: Emerging Technologies and Applications summarizes the outcomes of WWRF Working Group 5, highlighting the latest research results and emerging trends on short-range communications. It contains contributions from leading research groups in academia and industry on future short-range wireless communication systems, in particular 60 GHz communications, ultra-wide band (UWB) communications, UWB radio over optical fiber, and design rules for future cooperative short-range communications systems. Starting from a brief description of state-of-the-art, the authors highlight the perspectives and limits of the technologies and identify where future research work is going to be focused.

Key Features:

  • Provides an in-depth coverage of wireless technologies that are about to start an evolution from international standards to mass products, and that will influence the future of short-range communications
  • Offers a unique and invaluable visionary overview from both industry and academia
  • Identifies open research problems, technological challenges, emerging technologies, and fundamental limits
  • Covers ultra-high speed short-range communication in the 60 GHz band, UWB communication, limits and challenges, cooperative aspects in short-range communication and visible light communications, and UWB radio over optical fiber

This book will be of interest to research managers, R&D engineers, lecturers and graduate students within the wireless communication research community. Executive managers and communication engineers will also find this reference useful.
