About the Authors
  • Are you involved in implementing wireless mesh networks? As mesh networks move towards large-scale deployment, this highly practical book provides the information and insights you need. The technology is described, potential pitfalls in implementation are identified, clear hints and tips for success are provided, and real-world implementation examples are evaluated. Moreover, an introduction to wireless sensor networks (WSN) is included. This is an invaluable resource for electrical and communications engineers, software engineers, technology and information strategists in equipment, content and service providers, and spectrum regulators. It is also a useful guide for graduate students in wireless communications, and telecommunications.

    • Takes a practical, no-nonsense approach that cuts through the technical hype of the subject
    • Includes hints and tips at the back of the book for easy reference
    • Explains common pitfalls so you can avoid making the same errors
