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.
Benny Bing received his M. Eng. from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. Bing is with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland. He has worked for Singapore Telecom, Hewlett Packard, and AT&T Global Information Solutions. He served as a member of the international advisory committee ...
