This book is a virtual requirement for anyone attempting to take the Certified Wireless Network Professional exams. I was able to pass the Certified Wireless Network Administrator exam (cwne.com) with the information presented in the book. It covers IEEE 802.11 wireless network physical and data link layers in extensive detail. The text is written in an easy to follow format, without omitting the important technical issues. The author effectively uses real world examples, and step by step wireless LAN implementation guides. Included in this version of the book is expanded coverage of the new 802.11a standard and the OFDM physical layer. Bluetooth and 802.11b interference is also covered to some degree.
This is a good book if you're a member of a corporation planning a wireless network deployment; it spends a significant fraction of its time talking about the administrative structures that should be built up around a rollout.If you're a tech-head trying to learn more about the technology, prepare to wade through pages and pages of management jargon (complete with the same simplified diagrams you'd expect to see in a business seminar PowerPoint presentation.) This book will not help you much in constructing a home or community wireless network; it is oriented to project managers.If you're management, buy this book - but have your engineers buy something else.
very theoretical. don't expect practical considerations. but very thorough in its description. good compliment if you already have a good wireless understanding.
I have 23 years in IT and needed to understand wireless. You will know I did not start with this book. First Bedel, then Rhoton and then it was easy to read. Other reviewers wrote that this book omits important parts. Probably this book happened before the WEP scandal. It is clear that it must be updated but you can always find the information on the Internet. This book gives the introduction for you to understand.
