This book is a practical guide to IEEE 802.11-based wireless local area networks (WLANs). ... The approach proposed in this book is indeed about combining a measurement-based performance estimation approach with simulations through discrete-event network simulation packages (OPNET and ns-2). ... The style of this book is original and effective. The dissertation on WLANs is comprehensive and provides practical guidelines for their design and deployment. The book can be a useful resource for students, researchers, and engineers. Each chapter includes a summary of key terms, suggestions for further readings, key terms, and review questions. This set of learning aids, complemented by suggestions for mini-projects to provide deeper understanding of the topics presented in each chapter, make the book a useful textbook or handbook for classrooms or schools that provide courses on wireless communications.
