This innovative resource presents comprehensive and detailed information on wired and wireless seamless access systems consisting of various types of transmission media including microwave, millimeter-wave, THz wave, and lightwave in fibers. This book explains heterogenous networks consisting of various transmission media with many media converters. Applications of seamless access networks for public infrastructure such as airports, railways and information and communications systems are described. The book focuses on two important features of seamless access systems, including high-capacity transmission capacity limitation due to economics as well as physics, and low-latency transmission. Latency has significant impact on applications including financial transactions and online gaming. Low-latency data is very important for self-driving cars as well. This book presents the concept of sensor-over-fiber, where many antenna units are connected through optical fibers to gather sensor responses coherently.


This book provides possible scenarios of future mobile networks which have many antenna units and opto-electric device technologies. Readers will learn about basic and state-of-the-art signal estimation techniques and concludes with exploration of social issues on future information and communication (ICT) infrastructure.
