eBook $93.00 Qty:
The continuing growth of wireless networks is being driven by ease of installation, flexibility and mobility, offering gains in efficiency, accuracy and lower business costs. This fresh perspective from experts in the field provides you with a practical approach to design implementation, evaluation and problem-solving, which underscores its uniqueness as a hands-on guide to next generation wireless communications systems. Based on the editors' and authors' pioneering work at Lucent Technologies (now Agere Systems), the book brings you a wealth of need-to-know information on WLAN implementation, deployment and results. Key topics include IP networking for wireless; wireless networking and Internet access standards; changes in the IEEE 802.11 standard; system design and implementation; and performance analysis. In-depth discussions are reinforced by over 100 illustrations and equations.
