Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines realistic wireless applications and the networks that can serve them in the short term. Considerable emphasis is placed on deflating unrealistic vendor claims. Focuses on wide area, mostly mobile, applications, with emphasis on public wide area networks. Material is application and business oriented, with sections on technical fundamentals, price and quantity fixations, technical considerations, connectivity, systems and subsystems, and user applications. Mathematics require no more that high school algebra. DeRose is a data radio consultant. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
