Introduction 
The wireless communication market is undergoing a major expansion with the deployment of new technologies and standards opening the prospect of significant impacts in many application areas. In this context, the growing demand of wireless and mobile application products needs highly integrated and low cost devices with more accuracy and best performance for modern transceivers. Moreover, innovative solutions are required to reduce the degree of complexity and difficulty in the design of wireless communication devices and systems. 

This book looks to discuss and address trends and challenges in wireless technologies and telecommunication. The book aims to provide researchers and academic communities with quality research on the concepts and developments in the emerging wireless technology fields. Designers, engineers, students, research strategists, and IT managers will find this book useful to gain insight into next generation wireless technologies and telecommunication. 



Objective 
The objective of this book is to showcase current R&D trends and novel approaches in design, analysis of broadband, multiband, and reconfigurable microwave devices and antennas for wireless and UWB applications, as well as to the advanced trends on emerging wireless communication technologies. This book will provide theoretical and experimental approach to some extent which is more useful to the reader and highlights unique design issues to help the reader to be able to understand more advanced research. 



Target Audience 
The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and researchers working in the fields of microwave engineering and wireless communication technology. It will be written for graduate students, researchers, academics, and industry practitioners who want to improve their understanding in the current research trend in design analysis of broadband, multiband, and reconfigurable microwave devices and antennas for wireless and UWB applications. Moreover, the book will include some chapters on emerging wireless communication technologies so that the general readers can be able to easily grasp some of the ideas in this area.
