About this book


The book discusses data and energy integrated communication networking technologies, including the latest research contributions in this promising area. It firstly provides an overview of data and energy integrated communication networks (DEINs) and introduces the key techniques for enabling integrated wireless energy transfer (WET) and wireless information transfer (WIT) in the radio frequency (RF) band. It then describes the ubiquitous architecture of DEINs and demonstrates the typical DEIN system and investigates the core issues in both the physical layer and the medium-access-control (MAC) layer in order to coordinate both the WIT and WET in the same RF band. Lastly, the book addresses a number of emerging research topics in the field of DEINs. It promotes joint efforts from both academia and industry to push DEIN a step closer to practical implementation. It is also a valuable resource for students interested in studying cutting-edge techniques in this field.
