Item description for Designing a Wireless Network by Jeffrey Wheat...

Wireless network design presents the IT professional with unique obstacles. Your network requires the seamless and secure distribution of information, in spite of competing communication protocols, incompatible hardware platforms, and narrow bandwidths. This book is an introduction to developing efficient means of wireless transport in order to fully leverage wireless technologies.
    1. You don't have to be a physicist to understand wireless network technology--but you need to know the basics of radio, cellular, infrared, and satellite 2. Design for optimal use of IP AddressesApproximately 60,000 logical port numbers can be associated with one external IP address. That means 60,000 different TCP sessions occurring simultaneously! 3. Master the basics of wireless local area networks (WLANs) and the 802.11 protocol suiteThe three primary areas of discussion are fixed wireless, mobile wireless, and optical wireless technology. 4. Coverage of wireless technology from the perspective of the service provider Includes discussion of Multichannel Multipoint Distribution Service (MMDS), Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS), and Wireless Local Loop (WLL). 5. Developing WLANs through the IEEE 802.11 Architecture Includes coverage if the access point (AP), the wireless medium, the distribution system (DS), the basic service set (BSS), the extended service set (ESS), and station and distribution services. 6. Developing WPANs through the 802.15 Architecture.The increasing number of telecommuters and small office/home office (SOHO) users is driving the demand for this section of the wireless industry. 7.Learn about the Bluetooth protocol See how the success of the Bluetooth technology can offer up low-cost implementation 8.Register for Your 1-year Upgrade The Syngress Solutions upgrade plan protects you from content obsolescence and provides monthly mailings, whitepapers, and more!

Reviews - What do customers think about Designing a Wireless Network?

for a general readership  Oct 27, 2004
An easy read. Well suited for someone who is not a physicist or communications engineer. The text glides smoothly over the basics of electromagnetic propagation and antenna design. Each of these is the stuff of entire [large] texts, for specialists. But the book gives you enough detail for your needs. One key point is that the truly hard work has already been encapsulated in the commercially available hardware, which is now very easy for the layman (you?) to use. There is deliberately very little to tweak on those boxes. Which makes a book like this feasible.

Naturally, there is more detail on the 802.11 standards and on the possible layout topologies of your network. Reinforced by several case studies. The most useful of which may be that for a home office, especially if you want your wireless network to span your entire house.
Don't By This Book.  Apr 1, 2002
This book does not have 608 pages. It have 370 pages full of nothing.
not bad but there are better  Jan 9, 2002
not a bad book. I preferred the wireless internet explained. since it is more practical in all the considerations and doesnt focus on interfaces. this book is worth reading but i recomend you look around first before buying.
