In the development and design of communication systems, the communication engineer is responsible for the optimization of system performance at a reasonable cost. Channel characteristics play a major role in determining system performance. Unfortunately, the engineer has no control over these characteristics. Physical properties dictated channel characteristics and these characteristics must be considered when optimizing system performance.
