Book Description: If you want to deploy your own wireless network – at home or at the office you must first understand the capabilities and risks associated with the 80. 1 protocols. Download PDF (. MB). Related eBooks. Cognitive Radio Networks.

In response to lacking standards for wireless LANs, the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) developed IEEE 80. 1, the first internationally recognized wireless LAN standard. This chapter is from the book. The IEEE 80. 1 topology consists of components interacting to provide a wireless LAN that enables station mobility transparent to higher protocol layers, such as the LLC. A station is any device that contains functionality of the 80. 1 protocol (in other words, the MAC layer, the PHY layer, and an interface to a wireless medium)

This title explores the IEEE standard (80. 1) and the European standard (HiPerLAN) for implementing wireless LANs, promoting interoperability and stability.

In this book, leading wireless expert Jim Geier systematically presents all the information and guidance that network architects, engineers, administrators, and managers need to maximize the performance and business value of new 80. 1n networks. Each phase of wireless LAN deployment is organized into clearly defined steps, and multiple case studies and hands-on exercises show how to apply each technique. Systematic testing to improve signal coverage, performance, and security.

While this book is focused more on administrative deployment and less on the actual functionality of 802.11, the reality is that this allows it to continue being valuable even though 802.11 networks have changed dramatically over the years.

If you want to understand 802.11 networks at a moderate level - technically - I would acquire the Wireless# official study guide when it becomes available from McGraw-Hill. If you want to understand 802.11 networks at an in-depth level, I would get the official CWNA study guide from McGraw-Hill and Matthew Gast's 802.11 Wireless Networks, 2nd Edition. When you want to master 802.11 security, go with the CWSP official study guide and the Cisco Wireless LAN Security book (not just for Cisco - believe me). From a management perspective, this book still has some value, however, Matthew Gast's book has an excellent chapter on this as well.

Found the book very good on 802.11 some sections very technical for those that are. A general good read. Tended to focus more on 802.11b. I would add this to your collection of books. He is a player in the wireless field. He also is a contirbutor to educating the public on wireless. Check out his articles on-line and website. His NOTES in the book are priceless. I liked it. I would have liked to see a little more on 802.11 A and G especially on charts and comparsions. Hopefully we'll see a 3rd edition covering those areas a little more since this book was published in 7/2001.

This is a good book if you're a member of a corporation planning a wireless network deployment; it spends a significant fraction of its time talking about the administrative structures that should be built up around a rollout.
If you're a tech-head trying to learn more about the technology, prepare to wade through pages and pages of management jargon (complete with the same simplified diagrams you'd expect to see in a business seminar PowerPoint presentation.) This book will not help you much in constructing a home or community wireless network; it is oriented to project managers.
If you're management, buy this book - but have your engineers buy something else.

I have 23 years in IT and needed to understand wireless. You will know I did not start with this book. First Bedel, then Rhoton and then it was easy to read. Other reviewers wrote that this book omits important parts. Probably this book happened before the WEP scandal. It is clear that it must be updated but you can always find the information on the Internet. This book gives the introduction for you to understand.

very theoretical. don't expect practical considerations. but very thorough in its description. good compliment if you already have a good wireless understanding.

The book is the bible for building WLANs. It provides all the nitty-gritty details that are required.
