Books:

The following is a list of books and publications that you may find helpful in your work. If you have resources that you have found valuable please let us know and we can add them to the list.

Anthony Klinkert. Creating WiMAX RFPs. Althos Publishing, 2008. This book explains the typical objectives and processes that are involved in the creation and response to request for proposals (RFPs) for WIMAX systems and services. ISBN: 1-932813-95-0
Harry R. Anderson. Fixed Broadband Wireless Design. Wiley, 2003. Although the title indicates a focus on fixed broadband, the book contains a great deal of fundamental wireless design resources. Highly recommended as a standard RF engineering reference. ISBN-10: 0-470-84438-8
V. K. Garg & J. E. Wilkes. Wireless and Personal Communications Systems. Prentice Hall, 1996. A good overview of wireless systems, including some design procedures and background theory.
