Description:

The Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology has a history dating back to one hundred years ago when G. Marconi sent the first ever wireless transmission from the Isle of Wight to Cornwall on the British mainland using spark-gap transmitters. In the past three decades military developed the UWB technology for ground penetrating radar. In 1998, the Federal Communication Commissions (FCC) recognized the significance of UWB technology and initiated the regulatory review process of the technology. Consequently, in February 2002 the FCC report appeared, in which UWB technology was authorized for the commercial uses with different applications, operating frequency bands as well as the transmitted power…

Prof. Ramjee Prasad is the Director of the Wireless Centre at Aalborg University in Denmark. He recently won a distinguished "Nordic" award for research achievements in the field of wireless communications. Ramjee Prasad is editor-in-chief for our Wireless Personal Communication journal and has also published over 15 books, mostly with Artech House though he is now eager to start publishing more of his books also with Springer.

Ramjee Prasad received his M.Sc. (Eng.) in electronics and communications and his Ph.D. in telecommunications from the Birla Institute of Technology, Ranchi, India. He is a researcher of hybrid multiple access schemes for wireless personal communications at the Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Dr. Prasad is Wireless Information and Multimedia Chair and Co-Director of the Center for Personkommunikation at Aalborg University. He is the author of CDMA for Wireless Personal Communications (Artech, 1996) and Universal Wireless Personal Communications (Artech, 1998). He is co-author of IP/ATM Mobile Satellite Networks (Artech House, 2002) and OFDM for Wireless Multimedia…
