This text is designed for workers in the field and professional engineers, as well as radio equipment manufacturers involved in the design and planning of mobile networks. It is suitable for university text adoption in mobile networks courses. The text follows a logical progression through the physical aspects of radio propagation (including noise, shadowing, and fading) to the traffic management issues of radio data networks. A clear, comprehensive analysis presenting new and recent results on performance and spectrum efficiency of narrowband mobile networks.
