Overview

Your success guide to the next wireless revolution
The next watershed innovation in wireless technology is here: IEEE 802.11 wireless local area networks (LANs).
Recent studies from IDC indicate that the Wi-Fi wireless LAN market will likely account for ninety percent of projected LAN equipment revenues by 2005-a trend that promises to spill over into home wireless networks. Yet this amazing growth has also created confusion: Which version of 802.11 is best for vendors and end-users? What about solutions such as the a/g and a/b combinations of the 802.11 standards?
In World Wide Wi-Fi: Technological Trends and Business Strategies, Teik-Kheong (TK) Tan and Benny Bing provide a clear, accessible road map of the Wi-Fi wireless LAN market. Unlike most books on wireless local area networks (WLANs), this must-have resource explains both the business and technology of WLANs, and offers ready-to-use tactics and strategies for thriving in this lucrative field. Along the way, you'll also gain insight into the emerging Wi-Fi standards.
World Wide Wi-Fi presents:
* Key technological issues related to the design and deployment of Wi-Fi wireless LANs
* An insider's look at market dynamics, market segmentation, service provider, enterprise, and chipset strategies
* The interrelationship between the 802.11a, b, and g standards
* And much more
Supported by real statistics and case studies, plus profiles of suppliers, regulators, and other market players, this one-of-a-kind guide helps you create effective market penetration strategies and evaluate vendor-specific features. Ultimately, World Wide Wi-Fi defines the 802.11 market: its rapid expansion, its challenges, and its future. Most of all, it's your invitation to profit from everything that this red-hot industry has to offer.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
The growth of such mobile computing devices as laptops, personal digital assistants, and pocket PCs -- and the desire of mobile professionals for continual connections to the network without having to plug in -- is fueling the demand for wireless LAN access. As a result, wireless LANs are popping up all over the world and in all kinds of enterprises. These same enterprise customers will find that World Wide Wi-Fi by Teik-Kheong (TK) Tan and Benny Bing provides them with the knowledge they seek on cutting-edge wireless technology. It covers a range of topics that are "must know" for designing and developing the new wireless world.

Tan and Bing begin with a thorough overview of the rapid expansion of Wi-Fi wireless LAN technology and examine both technical and business challenges for continued growth. Next, they cover the activities of the various IEEE 802.11 tasks groups and identify essential elements of designing an effective Wi-Fi security system. What's more, they provide a broad survey of the issues related to Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning in integrated home wireless networks. Tan and Bing then present a case study on how hotspots can provide an interesting complement to cellphone networks. They also conduct a market analysis, examine the trends in the Integrated Circuit (IC) market plus the supply-and-demand side, and conclude that demand for wireless connectivity will spur wireless LAN growth for the foreseeable future. Finally, they focus on emerging trends in both Wi-Fi technology and business practices.

Up-to-date and easy to read, this excellent tool is ideal for the Wi-Fi beginner and a great refresher for anyone who wants to stay current in the field. John R. Vacca

John R. Vacca, the former computer security official (CSO) for NASA's space station program (Freedom), has written nearly 40 books about advanced storage, computer security, and aerospace technology.

From the Publisher
"This book is designed for networking professionals and IT executives who are interested in developing tactics and strategies that take advantage of the exciting Wi-Fi wireless LAN market." (Microwave Journal, July 2004)

"The authors provide a very approachable text to previous and present technologies in wireless local area networking, but this book is technical enough that it provides new information even to the more advanced reader." (E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 6)
