Wireless Computing A Manager's Guide to Wireless Networking Ira Brodsky Pagers, cellular phones, and high-flying satellites have radically altered the modern work place and forever changed the way business gets done. But in his forward-looking new book Wireless Computing, industry expert Ira Brodsky convincingly documents the fact that the wireless revolution has actually just begun. Wireless Computing is a comprehensive guide to each of the elements of the new wireless universe. Chapters provide detailed analysis of topics such as:

* Cellular phones, including a complete discussion of the migration from analog to digital cellular technology
* Paging and personal messaging services
* Infrared: "Fiber optics without the fiber"
