The explosive growth of the Internet and the subsequent demand for wireless data communications have led to data services being a major component in the standardisation process of many cellular mobile radio systems across the world. In GSM, the standardisation of the first phase of a new data service, initiated by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and collectively known as... View full abstract»

Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) is a system that promises to reinvigorate the use of the broadcasting bands below 30 MHz. It offers a dramatic improvement in audio quality, not only improving the audio bandwidth and signal-to-noise ratio, but also countering the effects of selective fading and audible interference from other stations. It is also designed to support various features that will make rec... View full abstract»
Broadcasting within the traditional AM bands is set to change with the introduction of digital broadcasts. Wideband receiver architectures allow many of the advanced functions of standards such as Digital Radio Mondiale to be implemented and upgraded without changing the hardware. This article describes some of the design issues of wideband receivers and the performance of a practical receiver View full abstract»
Given the extensive growth in Internet traffic and increasing emphasis on service quality, one of the most crucial elements of IP backbone network design is to provide resilience to serious failures such as fibre-optic cable breaks. In previous years, the unit of bandwidth granularity for many IP backbone networks has grown from STM-1 (155 Mbit/s) through to STM-16 (2.4 Gbit/s), with STM-64 (10 Gb... View full abstract»
Aims & Scope
Published from 1989-2002, the Electronics & Communication Engineering Journal aimed to inform practising professional engineers who were involved in electronics and communications by providing coverage of new developments in a serious technical, but not in an overformal or academic manner.
Topics covered included: Measurement and instrumentation; circuit design, simulation and CAD; signal and image processing, coding; microwaves, antennas and radio propagation; optoelectronics; TV and sound broadcasting; telecommunication networks; radio and satellite communications; radar, sonar and navigation systems; and electromagnetic compatibility.
