While many books cover coding and information theory, digital modulation, noise and data networks, there has been no text or reference that addresses the issue of reliable and efficient data communication in all these aspects. This book uniquely fills this important gap. With the rapid growth in data communications, particularly wireless data communication, problems of errors and lost transmissions need to be solved without excessive waste of system capacity. In this book, Metzner shows the various techniques for attaining reliable and efficient data communication over noisy channels and all types of data networks.
