BISAC: TEC041000

From the transition of analog to digital communication, along with seamless mobility and high computing power of small handheld devices, the wireless communications industry has seen tremendous changes leading to the integration of several telecommunication networks, devices and services over the last 30 years. The rate of this progress and growth has increased particularly in the past decade because people no longer use their devices and networks for voice only, but demand bundle contents such as data download/streaming, HDTV, HD video, 3D video conferencing with higher efficiency, seamless connectivity, intelligence, reliability and better user experience.

In this book, there are nine chapters which cover wireless networking evolution and technology advancements. High level discussions on this important and fast growing industry are presented by technology, academic, and industry communities. The content of this book will shed some light on this subject and the chapters presented in this book discuss the design and implementation of various short and long range wireless/wireline networking. The challenges faced in providing applications and services to meet user experiences ubiquitously and securely are presented.
