Get mobility, speed, simplicity and lower cost of ownership from wireless LANs

Find out about the new standards, products, and broadband options that make wireless networks as fast and reliable as wired ones. You'll learn what they're good at, how to operate them, and what to buy in "Deploying Wireless LANs. Gil Held, the author of over 20 top-selling jargon-free tech guides, clearly and thoroughly explains how to plan and build wireless LANs capable of supporting mobile devices and applications. You don't even need a background in radio frequency engineering to understand:

How to make your 802.11 LAN fully compliant with 802.3 and Bluetooth Common access points and how they're changing LAN options Basic transmission troubleshooting techniques More

From Computer Literature section A straightforward style is used to explain how to plan and build wireless LANs capable of supporting mobile devices and applications. The extensive introduction and terminology sections offer full explanations for those who need it before delving into chapters on systems, standards and installations. The final chapter explores several areas that can be expected to extend the capability of wireless LANs in the future.
