About the Author
This book provides the engineer and manager with a very good understanding of the processes needed to effectively perform the system design for broadband communication systems and home networking approaches.
Table of Contents
It is ideal for all engineers that design and analyze wireless, spread spectrum and basic broadband communication systems and are involved with the design of basic networking systems. It provides a good intuitive approach starting from basic telephony to satellite communications.
A wide range of broadband communication and home networking design techniques are covered along with tradeoffs addressing Powerline Carrier PLC, Telephone-powerline distribution - HomePNA, and RF and microwave communications. It addresses; IEEE 802.11, Bluetooth-802.15, HomeRF, FHSS, and HIPERLAN, Cable modems, interleaving, DSLAM, DMT, Ethernet, ATM, PVC, Video, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4.
The topics covered in the book includes; basic telephone fundamentals, standard modems; ADSL, ADSL lite/G.lite, ISDL, HDSL, HDSL2, SDSL, VDSL, ISDN, digital modulation techniques; BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK, 16QAM, FSK, MSK, GMSK, DGFSK, QAM, CRC, FEC, FH, packets, and piconets. In addition, this book addresses; PCS & Cellular, GSM, ISM bands, multiple access, TDMA, CDMA, FDMA, TDM/TDD and OFDM.
The book also includes; link budgets, power control, near-far problems, antenna diversity, along with a brief discussion of types of networking including LANs, WANs, Star, Bus, Ring, Ethernet, CSMA/CD, USB, and the 7-layer communication model.
Finally, the book covers the "Last Mile" connection to the home including; POTS, Coax, Fiber, hybrid fiber coax, Wireless, Terrestrial Communications, LMDS, MMDS, PTP, PMP, VoIP, CPE, NOC, NNE, NIU, Hubs, and Satellite Communications, Geostationary, Inmarsat, Intelsat, Eutelsat, ADPCM, PAMA, DAMA, DSI, DCME, VSAT, Cassegrain, Gregorian, Prime Focus, Equivalent Temp, G/T, and link budget.

Scott R. Bullock received his BSEE degree from Brigham Young University in 1979 and his MSEE degree from University of Utah in 1988. He has worked, consulted, and held positions at TI, Omnipoint, E-Systems, Fellow at Raytheon Missile Systems, Senior Director at MKS/ENI, Director at Titan, VP at Phonex Broadband, and VP at L3 communications Satellite Networks.
Mr. Bullock specializes in data link design and system analysis. He currently holds 18 patents in the areas of spread spectrum wireless data links, frequency hop detectors, and adaptive filters. He has published several articles in spread spectrum, data links, direction finding, multipath, adaptive filters, AGCs/PLLs, and presented a paper on a D8PSK data link at the AIAA/IEEE 14th DASC conference. His analysis and designs include; Spread Spectrum Microscan Receiver, Spread Spectrum Environment Simulator, anti-jam LPI data links for both military and commercial products, high frequency Adaptive Filter, Frequency Hop detector, handheld PCS spread spectrum wireless telephone and data products, GPS data link for SCAT-I aircraft landings where he was an active participant and made a presentation at the RTCA meetings in Washington DC for establishing the data link standard. Developed commercial products including wireless telephone jacks, modems, broadband communications and networking for home use, and digital satellite systems. Mr. Bullock is presently involved with the development of wireless anti-jam, low probability of intercept, data links for missile systems and unmanned airborne vehicles.
