Wireless is a term used to describe telecommunications in which electromagnetic waves (rather than some form of
wire) carry the signal over part or all of the communication path and the network is the totality of switches, transmission links and terminals used for the generation, handling and receiving of telecoms traffic.
Wireless networks are rapidly evolving, and are playing an increasing role in the lives of people throughout the world and ever-larger numbers of people are relying on the technology directly or indirectly.
The area of wireless communications is an extremely rich field for research, due to the difficulties posed by the wireless medium and the increasing demand for better and cheaper services. As the wireless market evolves, it is likely to increase in size and possibly integrate with other wireless technologies, in order to offer support for mobile computing applications, of perceived performance equal to those of wired communication networks.
Wireless Networks aims to provide an excellent introductory text covering the wireless technological alternatives offered today. It will include old analog cellular systems, current second generation (2G) systems architectures supporting voice and data transfer and also the upcoming world of third generation mobile networks. Moreover, the book features modern wireless technology topics, such as Wireless Local Loops (WLL), Wireless LANs, Wireless ATM and Personal Area Networks (such as Bluetooth).
* Provides an easy to use reference which presents a clear set of technologies per chapter
* Features modern wireless technology topics, such as Wireless Local Loops (WLL), Wireless LANs, Wireless ATM, Personal Area Networks (such as Bluetooth) and Ad-hoc wireless networks
* Progresses through the developments of first, second, third, fourth generation cellular systems and beyond
* Includes helpful simulation examples and examples of algorithms and systems
Essential reading for Senior undergraduate and graduate students studying computer science, telecommunications and engineering, engineers and researchers in the field of wireless communications and technical managers and consultants.

The field of wireless networks has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years causing it to become one of the fastest growing segments of the telecommunications industry. As wireless networks evolve with increasing size and profitability, they will be able to integrate with other wireless technologies enabling them to support mobile computing applications and perform as efficiently as wired networks. Due to the difficulties posed by the wireless medium and the increasing demand for better and cheaper services, the area of wireless networks is also an extremely rich field for research. Wireless Networks provides in-depth coverage of the wide range of wireless technological alternatives offered today.
* Introduces the fundamental topics involved with wireless systems such as the electromagnetic spectrum physics of propagation, modulation multiple access and performance enhancement techniques, and cellular and ad-hoc concepts
* Presents old analog cellular systems (First Generation, 1G), current Second Generation (2G) systems architectures supporting voice and data transfer and discusses the fast evolving world of Third Generation (3G) mobile networks
* Provides a vision of 4G and beyond mobile and wireless systems
* Describes satellite-based systems, fixed wireless systems, Wireless LANs, wireless ATM and ad-hoc systems, Personal Area Networks (PANs) and security issues in wireless networks
* Features a chapter on the simulation of wireless networks
This volume provides engineers, researchers, postgraduates and senior undergraduate students with an accessible self-contained reference to all of the key areas of wireless networks.
"...covers a broad spectrum of both traditional and contemporary wireless technologies...well-written...well organized...should be a useful reference for any wireless practitioner or researcher." (IEEE Distributed Systems Online, May 2004)
