Synopses & Reviews
A thoroughly up-to-date resource on IEEE 802 wireless standards
Readers can turn to this book for complete coverage of the current and emerging IEEE 802 wireless standards/drafts, including:
Emerging Wireless LANs, Wireless PANs, and Wireless MANs is a unique, convenient resource for engineers, scientists, and researchers in academia and industry. It also serves as a valuable textbook for related courses at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels.
This book introduces and explains current and emerging IEEE 802 wireless standards/drafts to readers, including IEEE wireless standards (Wireless LANs; Wireless PANs; and Wireless MANs. It also provides information on MAC (medium Access control) and the Physical layer protocols for all these standards/drafts with an emphasis on channel access and power management.
