As the demand for higher bandwidth has lead to the development of increasingly complex wireless techlogies, an understanding of both wireless networking techlogies and radio frequency (RF) principles is essential for implementing high performance and cost effective wireless networks. Wireless Networking Techlogy clearly explains the latest wireless techlogies, covering all scales of wireless networking from personal (PAN) through local area (LAN) to metropolitan (MAN). Building on a comprehensive review of the underlying techlogies, this practical guide contains 'how to' implementation information, including a case study that looks at the specific requirements for a voice over wireless LAN application. This invaluable resource will give engineers and managers all the necessary kwledge to design, implement and operate high performance wireless networks.
Stephen A. Rackley holds a Doctorate in Experimental Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge. He has worked for 26 years in the energy industry, with experience in some of the main technologies that are key to the currently most mature CO2 storage option - identification, assessment, monitoring and verification of sub-surface storage in the geo-sphere. More recently, his focus is on bringing significant new and evolving technologies to an advanced level (but non-specialist) student, engineering and project management audience.
