This is a concise presentation of the concepts underlying the design of digital communication systems, without the detail that can overwhelm students. Many examples, from the basic to the cutting-edge, show how the theory is used in the design of modern systems and the relevance of this theory will motivate students. The theory is supported by practical algorithms so that the student can perform computations and simulations. Leading edge topics in coding and wireless communication make this an ideal text for students taking just one course on the subject. Fundamentals of Digital Communications has coverage of turbo and LDPC codes in sufficient detail and clarity to enable hands-on implementation and performance evaluation, as well as 'just enough' information theory to enable computation of performance benchmarks to compare them against. Other unique features include space-time communication and geometric insights into noncoherent communication and equalization.

It is a complete training in digital communications in the same book with all the aspects involved in such training: courses, tutorials with many typical problems targeted with detailed solutions, practical work concretely illustrating various aspects of technical implementation implemented. It breaks down into three parts. The Theory of information itself, which concerns both the sources of information and the channels of its transmission, taking into account the errors they introduce in the transmission of information and the means of protect by the use of appropriate coding methods. Then for the technical aspects of transmission, first the baseband transmission is presented with the important concept and fundamental technique of equalization. The performance evaluation in terms of probability of errors is systematically developed and detailed as well as the online codes used. Finally, the third part presents the Transmissions with digital modulation of carriers used in radio transmissions but also on electric cables. A second important aspect in learning a learner's knowledge and skills is this book. It concerns the "Directed Work" aspect of a training. This is an ordered set of 33 typical problems with detailed solutions covering the different parts of the course with practical work. Finally, the last aspect concerns the practical aspects in the proper sense of the term, an essential complement to training going as far as know-how. We propose here a set of 5 practical works.
This text is a simple way for you to enter at the beginner level and make your way up to wireless system design. Mathematics is included at a school level. I rely more on visualizing equations through beautiful figures.
The book starts with a completely fresh perspective on introduction to signals and continues to dealing with complex numbers without any complicated mathematics. The only skills you require are addition, multiplication and knowing what cos and sin are! The topics of discrete domains - both time and frequency - are explained in an intuitive manner such that traveling between the two through Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) becomes quite natural. Furthermore, the concepts needed to implement modern digital communication systems such as convolution, filters and multirate signal processing are illustrated through the help of beautiful figures. Next, the book demystifies modulation and demodulation in a way easy to grasp even for a non-technical reader. The focus is on linear modulations, particularly Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM), Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) and Phase Shift Keying (PSK). Matched filtering is clarified in time, frequency and mathematical details in a story-like development. In addition, the topic of pulse shape filtering is covered in a depth and from angles never described anywhere before. The book continues with stethoscopes of a communication system, namely eye diagrams and scatter plots and towards the error rates of various modulation schemes along with the energy scaling factors of respective blocks. Finally, their spectral efficiencies are described taking into account the bandwidth, signal-to-noise ratio and data rates. This text is a simple way for you to enter at the beginner level and make your way up to wireless system design. Mathematics is included at a school level. I rely more on visualizing equations through beautiful figures. Therefore, you will encounter numerous figures throughout the text with logical and intuitive explanations. But you will not encounter any integrals, probability theory and detection/estimation theory. You will not even find any e or j of complex numbers either. The most complicated notation I have used is "sum everything from N1 to N2."

This book offers students, scientists and engineers an extensive introduction to the theoretical fundamentals of digital communications, covering single input single output (SISO), multiple input multiple output (MIMO), and time-variant systems. Further, the main content is supplemented by a wealth of representative examples and computer simulations. The book is divided into three parts, the first of which addresses the principles of wire-line and wireless digital transmission over SISO links. Digital modulation, intersymbol interference, and various detection methods are discussed; models for realistic time-variant, wireless channels are introduced; and the equivalent time-variant baseband system model is derived. Since not all readers may be familiar with this topic, Part II is devoted to the theory of linear time-variant systems. The generalized convolution is derived and readers are introduced to impulse response, the delay spread function, and system functions in the frequency domain. In addition, randomly changing systems are discussed. In turn, Part III deals with MIMO systems. It describes MIMO channel models with and without spatial correlation, including the Kronecker model. Both linear and nonlinear MIMO receivers are investigated. The question of how many bits per channel use can be transmitted is answered and maximizing channel capacity is addressed. Principles of space–time coding are outlined in order to improve transmission quality and increase data rates. In closing, the book describes multi-user MIMO schemes, which reduce interference when multiple users in the same area transmit their signals in the same time slots and frequency bands.
This book is concerned with an introduction to the principles of baseband and
wireless digital communications. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the subject

The purpose of this book is to introduce the basic concepts involved in electrical communication and further expand the reader's knowledge to more modern form of digital communication so that he can easily understand the processes involved in modern day data communication. The book is written for the readers with basic understanding of electronics and mathematics for engineers. Care has been taken to illustrate the concepts by illustrative examples; however the use of mathematics has been kept to minimum so that the readers of different branches of Engineering like computer engineering, Information technology etc. find it easy to understand without going into too much of details that may not be required for them. The book provides in-depth understanding of the fundamental processes involved in moving the data from one place to another. Chapter one has been dedicated to basic fundamental concepts starting with the definition of the signals, discussing sine wave and analysis of the real life signals by breaking it to its spectral components using the Fourier analysis. Chapter two focuses on the mechanism of transmission of signals. The need and various forms of modulations are discussed in adequate details. Special treatment is given to Digital modulation techniques which play vital role in transporting data from one place to another place. Techniques to convert data into a form suitable for transmission that is signals have been discussed qualitatively and further various forms of the media, through which the signals would be required to travel during its journey from one place to another and its effect on the signals has been discussed in detail. Chapter three discusses need for standards, methods and protocols for data transmission. Switching techniques are also briefly discussed which are essential part of any kind of multi-hop transmission system. Chapter four addresses the solution to problems of the different speeds of transmission and reception by different systems and also discusses the solution to the problems imposed by the media which asserts its effect by introducing errors in the received data. Chapter five gives brief introduction to telephone systems including integrated services digital network. Need for multiplexing systems and few multiplexing systems in use currently are also discussed in adequate details. Finally chapter six discusses the data security aspects and the need of reduction of used bandwidth. Few techniques have been discussed to give little exposure and adequate understanding needed at undergraduate level. Care has been taken not to go into unnecessary details.

Since the publication of the first edition of Fundamentals of Digital Switching in 1983, there has been substantial improvement in digital switching technology and in digital networks. Packet switching has advanced from a low-speed data-oriented switching approach into a robust broadband technology which supports services ranging from low-speed data to video. This technology has eclipsed the flexibility of circuit switching. Fiber optic cable has advanced since the first edition and has substantially changed the technology of transmission. to research in optical devices to find a still better means of This success has led switching. Digital switching systems continue to benefit from the 100-fold improvement in the capabilities of semiconductor devices which has occurred during the past decade. The chip industry forecasts a similar escalation in complexity during the next 10 years. Networks of switching systems have changed due to regulatory policy reform in many nations, including the breakup of the Bell System in the United States, the introduction of new types of carriers in Japan, competition in the United Kingdom, and a reexamination of public policy in virtually all nations. Standards bodies have been productive in specifying new capabilities for future networks involving interactive and distributive services through STM and A TM technologies.
