Wireless is a term used to describe telecommunications in whichelectromagnetic waves (rather than some form of
wire) carry the signal over part or all of the communication pathand the network is the totality of switches, transmission links andterminals used for the generation, handling and receiving oftelecoms traffic.
Wireless networks are rapidly evolving, and are playing anincreasing role in the lives of people throughout the world andever-larger numbers of people are relying on the technologydirectly or indirectly.

The area of wireless communications is an extremely rich field forresearch, due to the difficulties posed by the wireless medium andthe increasing demand for better and cheaper services. As thewireless market evolves, it is likely to increase in size andpossibly integrate with other wireless technologies, in order tooffer support for mobile computing applications, of perceivedperformance equal to those of wired communication networks.
Wireless Networks aims to provide an excellent introductory textcovering the wireless technological alternatives offered today. Itwill include old analog cellular systems, current second generation(2G) systems architectures supporting voice and data transfer andalso the upcoming world of third generation mobile networks.Moreover, the book features modern wireless technology topics, suchas Wireless Local Loops (WLL), Wireless LANs, Wireless ATM andPersonal Area Networks (such as Bluetooth).
* Provides an easy to use reference which presents a clear set oftechnologies per chapter
* Features modern wireless technology topics, such as WirelessLocal Loops (WLL), Wireless LANs, Wireless ATM, Personal AreaNetworks (such as Bluetooth) and Ad-hoc wireless networks
