Product Description

From the Back Cover

Digital techniques are central to almost all modern telecommunications systems.  The third edition of Digital Communications has retained both its comprehensive coverage and its balance between theory, applications and systems implementation.  Its main aim is to develop the mathematical theory of signal processing and use this theory to describe modern digital communications. 

Key features

  • Presents a comprehensive quantitative treatment of digital communications principles including information theory, PCM, source coding, encryption, channel coding, multiplexing, modulation and optimum filtering
  • Includes a thorough treatment of system noise and communication link budgets
  • Introduces the principles of system simulation
  • Describes a range of modern systems, including satellite communications, cellular radio and networks (wireless MANs, LANs and PANs)
  • Provides a revised and extended treatment of networks that includes OFDM, circuit and packet switching, ATM and B-ISDN,  MIMO, xDSL, FTTx, FDDI, DQDB, BFWA (including IEE 802.16),  Bluetooth and UWB
  • Extensive examples and end-of-chapter problems
  • Updated references, web addresses, standards and bibliography
  • Outline solutions to problems available for instructors on the WWW

This text is suitable for undergraduates and first year postgraduate students.  It also provides an excellent overview for professional engineers.

I am a EEE (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) student (NOT a lecturer and NOT at Strathclyde University). I have all 3 editions as the book is really that good!

If you take Information Transmission and Security then this is the book to get! You will not be disappointed!

If you are studying Electronic Engineering with communications modules or Telecommunications, then this book is for you.it deliberatelly keeps the maths to a reasonable low level and explains each topic in an easy to understand manner.With plenty of examples and solutions to end of chapter questions, you cant go wrong with this book. A must buy.

Digital Communications 25 Feb. 2000
By Michalis Roppas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's a very comprehensive book that illustrates the principles of Digital communication theory balancing theory and practice. I addition, it uses helpfull diagrams and graphs in order to illustrate the impact of different parameters on signal strength, noise level etc.It is strongly recommended for a system engineer.

Good upper-level undergraduate treatment of the subject 24 Jun. 2003
By Dumitru Erhan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found out that this book is intended for graduate students only at the end of the course, which was based on this text. It was though a good experience to have studied from it as it provides a thorough and fundamental treatment of Digital Communications topics. The chapters on sampling, multiplexing and optimum filters were the most enjoyable for me. I did not really see the point in such a short text on Fourier analysis - the Oppenheim's "Signals and Systems" provides a much more systematic description of the Fourier Series and FT. Four stars because of that, but if you already know FT very well then buy this book since it's a good deal and a worthy investment!
