Editorial Reviews

Slashdot.org
A great resource for businesses and individuals looking to establish their own 802.16 network. I enjoyed the foresight provided in this book for potential problems faced by network operators. The honesty in the practicality of an 802.16 network as a realistic network solution also made the book a great resource. There was no fantasy scenario or white lies to convince a user of the merit of a 802.16 network beyond what it can do.

    One of the first books on WiMax

    First up! Daniel Sweeney has come up with one of the first authoritative guides to WiMax. With the huge success of WiFi in many countries, some people have chafed at its short range of 100 meters or so, and its relatively low bandwidth. In response, the IEEE has come up with a standard, 802.16, better known as WiMax. It can offer some 70 Mbps, compared to 2Mbps for WiFi, and at a range of several kilometers. Very nice. But WiMax introduces new complications, compared to a much simpler WiFi network. No one in the world has yet built an operational WiMax network that is available for public use. Though of course there has been small scale prototyping, which has undoubtedly helped the IEEE define the current WiMax standard. Sweeney describes here what the features of a WiMax network would be. This book is not restricted to a hard core audience of hardware engineers or software developers. Instead, he has written it as a level accessible to technical managers, who might be considering such a network. There is roughly equal emphasis on both the technical issues of signal propagation and on the business issues of building and running the network. Still early days yet for WiMax. Which is in fact one of the attractions of this book. Sweeney has given us enough information to seriously contemplate the top level design and economics of a network. Ahead of the curve.
