This text explains the general principles of how wireless systems work, how mobility is supported, what the underlying infrastructure is and what interactions are needed among different functional components. Designed as a textbook appropriate for undergraduate or graduate courses in Computer Science (CS), Computer Engineering (CE), and Electrical Engineering (EE), “Introduction to Wireless and Mobile Systems, Third Edition” focuses on qualitative descriptions and the realistic explanations of relationships between wireless systems and performance parameters. Rather than offering a thorough history behind the development of wireless technologies or an exhaustive list of work being carried out, the authors help CS, CE, and EE students learn this exciting technology through relevant examples such as understanding how a cell phone starts working as soon as they get out of an airplane.

Master the basics in designing, building, and managing a Cisco Aironet WLAN. *Master the basics of Wireless LANs with this concise design and deployment guide *Understand implementation issues for a variety of environments including vertical, SOHO, and enterprise networks *Learn design and troubleshooting advice from real-world case studies 802.11 Wireless LAN Fundamentals gives networking engineers and IT professionals the knowledge they need to design, deploy, manage, and troubleshoot their own wireless local-area networks (WLANs). Starting with an overview of the technology and architecture of WLANs, the book goes on to explain services and advanced features that such applications can provide. Most importantly, it provides practical design guidance and deployment recommendations. Wireless LANs connect computer networks via radio transmissions instead of traditional phone lines or cables. Benefits to these systems go well beyond getting rid of all the cables and wires. Campus networks can grow geographically larger while still retaining all their efficiency and speed.Additionally, cost savings can be realized when third-party phone lines are no longer necessary, saving the cost of line rental and equipment upkeep. Finally, flexibility in campus network design increases significantly for the networking professional, while the network accessibility and usefulness increases for the individual users. 802.11 Wireless LAN Fundamentals helps networking professionals realize these benefits by helping them understand how to design, build, and maintain these networks, as well as how to justify their value within organizations.

Engineering wireless technologies for both public and private use have led to the creation of new applications. These include the adaptation of current network management procedures and protocols and the introduction of unified open service architectures. Aspects such as accounting for multiple media access and QoS (quality of service) profiling must also be introuced to enable multimedia service offers, service management and service control over the wireless internet. Security and content production are needed to foster the development of new services while adaptable applications for variable bandwidth and variable costs will open new possibilities for ubiquitous communications. In this work, specialist subject contributors drawn from a broad international field address these prospects.
