Hardback $99.00 Qty:
Understand the technological issues associated with wireless local area networks (WLANs) as a means of providing cable-free data access, easy upgrading and flexible reconfiguration compared to the extensive multimedia and intensive application support provided by terrestrial and satellite asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks using this new resource. You see the benefits and the issues related to developing wireless ATM and get a comprehensive overview of both WLAN and WATM technologies, as well as their global standards, performance evaluations of the two network options, and the pros and cons of each, written by an acknowledged expert in the fields of wireless communications and high-speed networking. Designed to provide a survey of requirements for third-generation wireless networks, Wireless Local and ATM Networks discusses how WLANs offer great flexibility, and simple methods for reconfiguring or expanding networks without much expense or redesign, making upgrades inexpensive and easy. It also depicts how ATM is capable of supporting precise and demanding applications, including today's most intense multimedia functions, and it explores the technical issues related to extending ATM from wireline to wireless environments. Current ATM standards have been developed dependent upon high data rates and reliable transmission links, which today's wireless channels' narrow bandwidth and high error rates cannot provide. Containing a review of new IEEE 802.11 and HIPERLAN standards for WLANs, and an examination of progress being made on standards development for wireless ATM, this timely book is an essential addition to the library of data and telecommunications network engineers, cellular planners and designers, researchers, and post-graduate students of wireless networking technology. It also includes real-world performance reviews of existing WLANs.
Introduction to Wireless Local Area Networks. Wireless LAN Standards. Performance Evaluation of Wireless LANs.Introduction to Wireless ATM Networks. The Wireless Mobile Environment. Multimedia Communications Using Wireless ATM. Wireless ATM Prototypes. ATM Over Satellite. Wireless ATM Standardization Activities.
