A detailed look at the technologies and techniques needed to operate fixed broadband wireless access networks
In today s fast-paced corporate environment, it s more important than ever to be able to access data and communicate information from any location at any time. In turn, an increasing number of companies are taking advantage of fixed broadband wireless (FBW) solutions. With this comprehensive guide, you ll discover the technologies required for FBW and learn how to plan, deploy, and manage an access network. Based on his extensive experience in the field, Oliver Ibe begins by explaining the strengths and weaknesses of other leading technologies such as the cable network and DSL. He then explores all aspects of FBW, detailing everything from access and service provider networks and traffic models to quality of service, security issues, and emerging standards. He also uncovers the ATM-based and DOCSIS-based solutions as well as the time division duplex channel and the frequency division duplex channel access schemes. In addition, he provides a comprehensive look at the design solutions for delivering FBW services.
Throughout the book, Ibe presents both the theory and the practice of FBW access networks. Inside, you ll also find in-depth discussions on:
• Hamming, cyclic, BCH, Reed-Solomon, shortened cyclic, and turbo codes
• Issues in wireless MAC protocol design
• Duplexing techniques and frame formats
• Wireless ATM network architecture
• Wireless modem requirements
• Service provisioning in ATM-based networks
• Implementing VPNs and VLANs in FBW access networks
• Issues in FBW access network management
