Introduction to Mobile Wireless Systems
The evolution of wireless systems has taken place in a remarkably short time, delivering incredible technology advances that have changed the way people communicate and interact with each other. Those advances have come in several generations; the mobile wireless communication journey started with 1G, followed by 2G, 3G, 4G, and now 5G, the standard currently under specification. Each generation of wireless systems followed different evolutionary paths toward two unified targets: delivering greater performance and efficiency, and doing so in highly complex network deployments.
