Editorial Reviews

Muller, an industry consultant, has written a clear, thorough guide that explains wireless technology in approximately 100 entries. The entries are devoted to subjects that include laser transmission, specialized mobile radio, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, CDMA, and fraud management systems. The volume's intended audience is business owners who are using or preparing to use wireless, although Muller doesn't tone down the technical details that are necessary to fully understand each topic. The entries consist of a substantial text, several pages in length, with b&w photos, diagrams when needed, a summary, and cross-references to related topics. A full list of acronyms is included.
