Pahlavan (wireless network studies, Worcester Polytechnic Institute) and Krishnamurthy (information science and telecommunications, University of Pittsburgh) provide a systems approach to building wireless networks. They articulate the underlying principles, commonalties, differences, and specific implementation issues associated with most of the common wireless systems. Particular attention is paid to the principles of air-interface design, the principles of wireless network operation, wireless wans, and local broadband and ad hoc networks. Detailed examples illustrate major points. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
