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 Addresses
Approximately 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 suite
The 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
