The expert guide to wireless data networking with CDPD--and how to profit from it.
In Internetwork Mobility, the developers of the Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) standard present a complete, authoritative guide to wireless data: both the technology and the highly profitable business applications it makes possible. They focus on CDPD's wide area data networking capabilities, demonstrating how CDPD can make mobile devices accessible for data transmissions virtually anywhere, anytime, without complex gateways.
If you're new to wireless data communications, the authors present the fundamentals of cellular communications and mobility--the background you need before you can understand CDPD. Next, they cover the CDPD protocol in detail, and show how it solves the problems associated with reliable transmission of digital data. Understand CDPD's security capabilities, including encryption, digital signatures, and authentication. And learn about CDPD's comprehensive system management framework, including CDPD's support for:
- Usage accounting
- Message handling services
- Directory services
Compare CDPD with non-cellular approaches to mobile data networking, including infrared, narrowband RF, spread spectrum and other systems. And understand where CDPD is headed--included CDPD Release 2.0 and forthcoming higher-level protocols optimized for mobility.
Wireless data networking: An extraordinary business opportunity.
By the year 2000, more than 5.2 million subscribers are expected in the U.S. alone--nearly 500% growth in just five years. Don't miss this opportunity. Whether you're developing, implementing, or considering wireless data solutions, CDPD offers the most robust, scalable approach to wireless data--and Internetwork Mobility is the clearest, most useful introduction to CDPD available.
