Product Description


"The author is focused on his topic, precise in his use of words, and balanced in his approach. Advantages to the text's approach include the author's ability to: a) explain complex concepts clearly and concisely, b) present detailed information succinctly, and c) use figures and tables to further explain difficult concepts." — Anne M. Cox, Austin Community College

From the Back Cover

Best-selling author, William Stallings, gives an up-to-date coverage of both wireless communications and wireless networks with new expanded coverage of Wi-Fi and WiMax. Designed for students and professionals, this text explores the key networking topics with a unique approach covering: technology and architecture, network design approaches, and types of networks and applications.

  • Provides an entire chapter on spread spectrum, which is pervasive in wireless technology today.
  • Also provides an entire chapter on satellite communications. This topic remains an important area within wireless communications.
  • Thorough coverage of cordless systems. This is an interesting and important new area that extends the traditional cordless telephone technology over greater distances and for greater numbers of users.
  • Extensive coverage of fixed wireless access, also known as wireless local loop, and IEEE 802.16 standards. This has become a very important area for bringing high-speed access to subscribers in place of land lines.
  • Devotes a whole chapter on Mobile IP Wireless Application Protocol (WAP). Wireless Internet and Web access are driving forces in the evolution of wireless technology and are a must have.
  • Complete coverage of Wireless LANs, including IEEE 802.11 and Bluetooth. This is a broad and important area, and the book devotes three chapters to this realm.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The delivery was well within the estimated delivery time and the book was in perfect condition.
The Book itself is a great Overview of all Wireless Networks. It is broken down in an "easy to follow" way and gives concise and clear information on all topics. The only thing lacking in these books is some "real world" examples.
