Publisher Comments:

Wireless Computing A Manager’s Guide to Wireless Networking Ira Brodsky Pagers, cellular phones, and high-flying satellites have radically altered the modern work place and forever changed the way business gets done. But in his forward-looking new book Wireless Computing, industry expert Ira Brodsky convincingly documents the fact that the wireless revolution has actually just begun. Wireless Computing is a comprehensive guide to each of the elements of the new wireless universe. Chapters provide detailed analysis of topics such as:
  • The wireless workplace and radio Local Area Networks (LANs)
  • Cellular phones, including a complete discussion of the migration from analog to digital cellular technology
  • Paging and personal messaging services
  • Infrared: "Fiber optics without the fiber"
  • Bandwidth, including a full tour of frequency ranges and how each is currently used
Beyond merely summarizing the latest wireless advancements, Brodsky suggests ways companies of various sizes and industries might integrate them into their internal communications networks. As the battle rages over which standards and technologies will win marketplace superiority, Wireless Computing offers provocative insights that corporate IT and communications managers, network administrators, equipment and software vendors, and others responsible for staying ahead of the communications technology curve are sure to find invaluable.

Book News Annotation:

Considers the commercial and operational aspects rather than the technology itself of wireless workplaces, radio LANs, cellular phones and their conversion from analog to digital, paging and personal messaging services, infrared as fiber optics without the fiber, and the ever-more-popular bandwidth along with a tour of frequency ranges and what they are currently carrying. Includes a glossary, but no bibliography. The ink was already, though barely, dry when Wiley bought Van Nostrand Reinhold, so the ISBN printed in the CiP data is the old one.
