Overview

Mobility with WiMAX and Wi-Fi

This rigorous tutorial provides the technical guidance needed to design and integrate Wi-Fi and Wi-MAX into existing 2.5 and 3G wireless systems. 3G Wireless with 802.16 and 802.11 makes manageable the in-demand design and re-engineering tasks involved in adding Internet and broadband capabilities to existing wireless phone networks. Look inside for the engineering specifics you need to:

  • Design and integrate 802.16 into RF systems
  • Configure Wi-Fi for fixed wireless delivery
  • Integrate Wi-Fi into mobile wireless systems
  • Integrate WiMax and Wi-Fi into a mobile wireless system
  • Learn 802.20 design parameters

Written by hands-on communications engineers, this remarkable guide clearly shows you how to approach the many issues confronting designer/integrators, including:

  • An Introduction—from Wireless Mobility Concept to Fixed Wireless (LMDS, MMDS), and 802.X
  • Radio Engineering, from Generic Radio Systems to Bi-Dimensional Amplifiers
  • Network Engineering, from Basic Switching to the Backhaul
  • Digital Wireless Systems, from Enhancements over Analog to 2.5G/3G
  • 2.5G/3G Integration with Wi-Fi and WiMax
  • 802.11, from Hotspots to VPNs, SOHO, and More
  • 802.16, from RF Design Considerations to Integration with 802.11/Mobility
  • 802.20 and Integration with 802.11 and 2.5G/3G
  • Convergence Wireless Mobility, Including Various User Devices, Smart Switches
  • 4G

Editorial Reviews

Books-On-Line
Perhaps the fastest changing technology area is wireless communications. The old analog cell phone systems got us started with the idea of being able to talk anywhere. And if we could talk, we could send data. And if this worked, then the newer digital networks had to be designed from the ground up with a mixture of voice and data. Now we are reaching to the point where wireless may become a serious competitor to land lines for data communications. Already we see wireless networks in Starbucks and McDonalds, hidden below the surface are ATM machines, gas pumps, cash registers and more. The new IEEE 802.16 is bringing standardization to wireless broadband access, just as DSL and cable modem broadband.

This book is a snapshot of the technology of wireless data communications technology as it exists today. It is intended for the person who is thinking about or planning on the installation of a wireless data network. Part of the McGraw-Hill Professional Engineering series, it is a description of the technology itself. It is not a cookbook of the buy one of these and plug it into one of those types. It goes into the details of how the technology works. It describes all of the new buzz words. It is an introduction to Wi-Fi and WiMAX, but is not aimed at the total beginner or the shall we say technologically challenged.
