    Book Outline

    This book has been highly commended by Vic Hayes, Chairman of the IEEE 802.11 Working Group on Wireless LANs. The book provides a concise discussion on current wireless LAN technology and offers a glimpse of where the field of broadband wireless ATM is heading. The approach taken in the book is to emphasize core concepts and underlying principles rather than factual descriptions. In addition, many carefully prepared illustrations are used throughout the book to enhance the textual explanations. By distilling details down to the basic issues needed for intuitive understanding, both serious and novice readers are able to gain valuable insights into the exciting field of high-speed wireless communications and mobile computing. However, the purpose of the book goes beyond making the reader merely proficient in these issues. The many problems discussed serve to stimulate reflection and further research. To encourage readers to fully explore the topics covered, useful Internet resources and references have been included. Most of the references are chosen because they are either informative or particularly well written. Hence, the book can serve as an ideal course reader on advanced wireless networks. The chapters of this book are organized as follows. Chapter 1 highlights the major technical problems associated with the indoor wireless environment and recommends some solutions to cope with these problems. Various types of wireless LANs are described in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 deals with issues related to wireless LAN implementation while in Chapter 4, the structure of the IEEE 802.11, HIPERLAN and other emerging industry-standards such as Bluetooth and HomeRF are explained. Chapter 5 focuses on the performance evaluation of several commercial wireless LANs, including those complying to the IEEE 802.11 standard. Chapter 6 surveys the technical and service issues related to the deployment of ATM in third-generation wireless networks. The requirements for multimedia communications using ATM are also examined. Several wireless ATM prototypes and products are then described. The chapter concludes with an interesting account of how ATM cells can be transported over satellite networks. Chapter 7 provides a brief overview on the current wireless ATM standardization activities in the US, Europe and Japan. Finally, a list of references is included in a bibliography. Updates and useful web resources are posted in the book's web site. Send an email to to request for the URL.
