About the Authors
  • This exciting and comprehensive overview describes the underlying principles, implementation details, and key enhancing features of the new IEEE 802.11n standard, which has been created to significantly improve network throughput. A detailed discussion of important strength and reliability enhancing features is given in addition to a clear summary of any issues. Advanced topics are also covered. With numerous examples and simulation results included to highlight the benefits of the new features, this is an ideal reference for designers of Wireless Local Area Network (LAN) equipment, and network managers whose systems adopt the new standard. It is also a useful distillation of 802.11n technology for graduate students and researchers in the field of wireless communication.

    • Brings you quickly up to speed on 802.11n without having to wade through the entire standard
    • Provides explanations as to how/why certain features were adopted
    • Includes numerous MAC and physical layers examples, and simulation results

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Books like this one are invaluable because they provide the details and the background that allow readers to answer the questions, 'What is likely to be in the final standard and how does it work?' Eldad and Robert should be congratulated on taking up the challenge.' Andrew Myles, Chairman of Wi-Fi Alliance
