"This reference for students and professionals covers the design, operation, and maintenance of fixed wireless access and wireless local loop networks."
(SciTech Book News Vol. 25, No. 2 June 2001)
Fixed wireless access networks and Wireless Local Loop (WLL) technology are effective and efficient means for rapidly creating new access to telecommunications networks and services which are short of capacity and incapable of handling the bitrates expected by today's high speed multimedia, Internet, video and voice services.
Wireless Access Networks is a complete reference for all involved in fixed wireless access and wireless local loop, including business strategists, marketing, technical, planning and operations staff of public network operators, as well as students.
Well-illustrated and simple-to-read, topics covered include:
