Designing a Wireless Network: Understand How Wireless Communication Worksby Andy Mccullough
Synopses & Reviews
Wireless network design presents the IT professional with unique obstacles. Your network requires the seamless and secure distribution of information, in spite of competing communication protocols, incompatible hardware platforms, and narrow bandwidths. This book is an introduction to developing efficient means of wireless transport in order to fully leverage wireless technologies. 1. You don't have to be a physicist to understand wireless network technology--but you need to know the basics of radio, cellular, infrared, and satellite 2. Design for optimal use of IP AddressesApproximately 60,000 logical port numbers can be associated with one external IP address. That means 60,000 different TCP sessions occurring simultaneously! 3. Master the basics of wireless local area networks (WLANs) and the 802.11 protocol suiteThe three primary areas of discussion are fixed wireless, mobile wireless, and optical wireless technology. 4. Coverage of wireless technology from the perspective of the service provider Includes discussion of Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service (MMDS), Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS), and Wireless Local Loop (WLL). 5. Developing WLANs through the IEEE 802.11 Architecture Includes coverage if the access point (AP), the wireless medium, the distribution system (DS), the basic service set (BSS), the extended service set (ESS), and station and distribution services. 6. Developing WPANs through the 802.15 Architecture.The increasing number of telecommuters and small office/home office (SOHO) users is driving the demand for this section of the wireless industry. 7.Learn about the Bluetooth protocol See how the success of the Bluetooth technology can offerup low-cost implementation 8.Register for Your 1-year Upgrade The Syngress Solutions upgrade plan protects you from content obsolescence and provides monthly mailings, whitepapers, and more!Syngress wireless books can help prepare you to take the CWNA certification exam.
Book News Annotation:
This guide for IT professionals presents an introduction to wireless technologies and the design and development of wireless networks. Coverage includes, for example, the components of a wireless network and how they work, the physics behind wireless communications, and protocols such as TCP/IP and OSI. Coverage extends to a discussion of fixed and mobile wireless technologies, wireless LANs and PANs, and optical wireless technologies. The volume also contains case studies of fictional wireless projects in industrial, hospital, college, and home settings.

Business is on the move - mobile computing must keep up!
Innovative technology is making the communication between computers a cordless affair. Mobile computing with laptops, hand helds and mobile phones is increasing the demand for reliable and secure wireless networks. Network engineers and consultants need to create and build cutting-edge wireless networks in both the small business and multi-million dollar corporations.
Designing Wireless Networks provides the necessary information on how to design and implement a wireless network. Beginning with detailed descriptions of the various implementations and architectures of wireless technologies and moving to the step-by-step instructions on how to install and deploy a fixed wireless network; this book will teach users with no previous wireless networking experience how to design and build their own wireless network based on the best practices of the Enhanced Services from Lucent Technologies.
* Timely coverage of new technologies: Communication without cables is the future of netwoking
* Advocates wireless networking solutions for any user, regardless of location, device or connection.
* Written by Experts. The authors are leading WAN authorities at Lucent Technologies.
* No previous wireless experience is assumed, however, readers should have a basic understanding of networking and TCP/IP protocols
