The world is going mobile, so unless you want to be left behind, you must have the ability to take advantage of corporate resources and the wealth of information on the Internet -- regardless of location and without the restrictions of a wired connection. This is one of the most compelling new trends of the decade -- rivaling email and cell phones in significance. The trick here is to figure out how to integrate wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) with your wired networks, or to figure out how to do it better. This lucid book on the topic will help you do just that. It is a great way to catch up to or keep up with this incredible but necessary technology.
Nathan J. Muller has covered the subject of Wi-Fi quite thoroughly in this how-to book that takes you through the evolution of advancements in speed, bandwidth, security, and more. The author does an outstanding job of clearly explaining the essential concepts of wireless, including services, applications, protocols, administration, management, security, and deployment issues. The inclusion of an acronyms list at the end of the book was a nice touch.
This is an excellent source and reference book for anyone facing the challenge of integrating Wi-Fi into their business. It provides a useful conceptual model, and yet it is detailed enough to lead network managers through the integration process. John Vacca
