While there are countless books on wireless networks, few actually
quantify the key performance-limiting factors of wireless local
area networks (WLANs) and describe various methods for improving
WLAN performance. Fulfilling these needs, Improving the Performance
of Wireless LANs: A Practical Guide provides both theoretical
background and empirical results for the optimum planning and
deployment of high performance WLAN systems in different
residential and commercial buildings. Useful to students,
faculties, researchers, engineers, and network developers, this
must-have book not only explains the fundamentals of WLAN systems,
including WLAN features and standards, but also:
- Supplies strategic guidelines for WLAN system design, modeling,
and performance evaluation
- Includes radio propagation and site measurements as well as
simulations for various network design scenarios
- Discusses environmental effects on WLAN performance, protocol
redesign for routing and MAC, and traffic distribution
- Contains numerous illustrations and examples, plus chapter
summaries, review questions, reading lists, mini-projects, an
extensive glossary, and a list of acronyms
- Examines emerging and future network technologies, such as next
generation Wi-Fi (802.11ac), very high throughput Wi-Fi (802.11ad),
wireless mesh networking (802.11s), emergency QoS (802.11u), and
vehicle-to-vehicle communications (802.11p)
Improving the Performance of Wireless LANs: A Practical Guide makes
the teaching, learning, and researching of advanced wireless
network design and performance a more active process by using
practical tools and exercises to add life to this highly technical
