Wireless Communications and Networking provides comprehensive coverage of mobile wireless communication, wireless networks, and internetworking/4G technology in one volume with a good blend of fundamental theory and real-world concepts and problem solving methods.
Wireless Networking serves as a one-stop view of cellular, WiFi, and WiMAX networks, as well as the emerging wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. The book emphasizes conceptual perspectives on modeling, analysis, design and optimization and presents wireless networking within the framework of resource allocation.
Designing, implementing, and operating a wireless sensor network involves a wide range of disciplines and many application-specific constraints. To make sense of and take advantage of these systems, a holistic approach is needed-and this is precisely what Wireless Sensor Networks delivers.
Bundled together to save you money, there is no quicker or cheaper way to such a comprehensive knowledge of wireless networking.
