Wireless communications is on an exponential growth path. As wireless devices are needed to handle more and more sophisticated functions, their design and optimization becomes more critical. An important change in wireless technology is the transition from voice-centric communications to data-related communications. The design of systems now requires a closer integration of the physical layer and the medium access layer. This eventually touches all aspects of physical layer communications, including modulation, coding and multiple access, as well as the lower layers of networking.
