In this comprehensive and complete volume aimed at engineers, project managers, and network planners, Lehpamer, an engineer with extensive experience in the planning, design, and deployment of wireless and wireline networks around the world, covers all stages of terrestrial point-to-point microwave network build-out, from planning to feasibility studies to system deployment and testing. He discusses how to determine network capacity, dimensions, architecture, budget, schedules, and work force requirements; understand microwave link engineering; calculate loss/attenuation, fading and fade margins, and link quality and availability; perform interference analysis; determine, procure, and install required hardware and power systems; manage the microwave project and its issues; test it; and handle maintenance, troubleshooting, and upgrades. This edition has been revised for the latest North American and ITU standards and updated with new information, including the impact of ethernet and IP communications on microwave links. Some formulas have been added, as well as their application in solving microwave design-related problems. A new frequently asked questions section is included. Details and mathematical models of microwave point-to-point link engineering are discussed briefly.
