Read an Excerpt

We believe this textbook covers all the primary areas in the wireless technology arena. It is the result of many years of research and work experience as well as years teaching college students all about the wonders of wireless technology.

We begin with a brief overview of networking. This not only sets the stage for later discussions on wireless, but also provides an opportunity for those students who do not already have a background in networking. The chapters that follow address the chief wireless technologies such as wireless application protocol, Bluetooth, cellular telephony, emergency services, wireless local area networks, satellite communications, global position system, and paging systems.

This text is well suited to Computer Information System (CIS) and Information Technology (IT) programs that emphasize a practical approach to this field. We have deliberately developed this book so that readers do not require any mathematical foundation. The concepts are presented thoroughly and clearly.

Being in the education field ourselves, we realize that instructor supplements are important. We never seem to have enough time, it seems! An extensive set of supplemental materials, including lecture notes, PowerPoint presentations, many. review and test questions, hands-on exercises, and team exercises is found in the Instructor's Manual that accompanies this text. In addition, we have gathered many wireless-oriented third-party software tools and placed them on the accompanying CD. It is truly amazing how many third-party vendors are available and more than willing to share their expertise.
