The previous two chapters presented the fundamental concepts underlying the behavior of radio frequency propagation in a real-world environment. With these principles as a foundation, we return to the development of a solution to the general systems-engineering challenge posed in Chapter 1, that is, to design a wireless telecommunication system that will
Support the communication of information from various sources, including speech, text, data, images, music, and video, in urban, suburban, and rural environments with quality approximating that of wired communications
Be capable of expanding in geographic coverage
