Emerging Technologies in Wireless LANs: Theory, Design, and Deployment Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wireless LANs have become mainstream over the last few years. What started out as cable replacement for static desktops in indoor networks has been extended to fully mobile broadband applications involving moving vehicles, high-speed trains, and even airplanes. This book is designed to appeal to a broad audience with different levels of technical background and can be used in a variety of ways: as a first course on wireless LANs, as a graduate-level textbook, or simply as a professional reference guide. It describes the key practical considerations when deploying wireless LANs and equips the reader with a solid understanding of the emerging technologies. The book comprises 38 high-quality contributions from industry and academia and covers a broad range of important topics related to 802.11 networks, including quality of service, security, high throughput systems, mesh networking, 802.11/cellular interworking, coexistence, cognitive radio resource management, range and capacity evaluation, hardware and antenna design, hotspots, new applications, ultra-wideband, and public wireless broadband. Benny Bing is a research faculty member with the School of ECE, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA. He is an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer, IEEE Senior Member, and Editor of the IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine.

Book News Annotation:

Now they are fully mobile and part (or soon to be part) of the infrastructure of virtually every major city. To be effective, these 802.11 mesh networks promise to support complete and constant Internet and public access. However commonplace wireless LANs will become, designing and implementing systems will still require significant skills. This collection of 38 articles serves the courses of undergraduate and graduate designers in training as well as a professional reference, with topics such as emerging standards, wireless LAN analysis, quality of service, security, high-throughput 802.11, 802.11 mesh networks, usage and performance comparisons of mobile MetroMesh networks, 802.11 cellular inter-working, coexistence of unlicensed wireless networks (and of 802.11 and Bluetooth), the 802.11 network and radio resources management, range, hardware design, wi-fi hot spots and applications, ultra wideband, and public wireless broadband. The articles are well-illustrated and articles include references. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This indispensable book provides you with the key practical tools and background knowledge for deploying WiFi networks, as well as a solid appreciation of the emerging technologies. Thirty-eight self-contained contributions written by CTOs, prominent academic-based researchers, and industry leaders set out the physical and engineering principles underpinning the latest developments, and examine future potential. Topics covered include quality of service, security, high throughput 802.11, WLAN/cellular interworking, coexistence, network and radio research management, hardware design, hotspots, and public wireless broadband. Future WiFi standards and technologies, including the new 802.11 initiatives - 802.11s, 802.11n and 802.11k - are addressed, as are the various Wi Fi applications. Other emerging WiFi technologies covered include MIMO systems, intelligent (cognitive) systems, multihop (mesh) networks, WiFi sensors, WiFi RFID, WiFi mixed-mobile convergence, and long-range WiFi. This is an invaluable resource for researchers and graduate students in electrical engineering and computer science departments, as well as practitioners in the wireless communications industry.
