Description - Wireless Broadband Handbook by Regis J. Bates
Understanding - and surviving the wireless explosion just got a lot easier! With the wireless broadband market expected to surge from $1.8 billion this year to more than $13 billion by the year 2003, understanding and learning the basics of the new broadband technologies fast may soon be a matter of survival rather than choice. And best-selling author Regis "Bud" Bates - whose earlier books are telecom classics - has exactly the right approach, style, and real-world experience to help anyone working in or around the wireless communications industry do just that. In "Wireless Broadband Handbook", "Bud" asks the logical, business-based questions that are important to you about this hot new technology: What is it? What do I need to know about it? What is it going to do for me? How much is it going to cost me? And he provides the answers - in a straightforward, jargon-free way. You'll find descriptions and analysis of key systems and options minus the techspeak and with the surety of an expert who knows how to help you make profitable business, technical, and career decisions.
"Wireless Broadband Handbook" provides clear, plain-English discussion of: applications and implementations of technologies; regulatory and standards development; generic pricing and business models; LMDS/MMDS/WAP/GPRS; wireless IP; GSM around the world; what's going on with WAP; and, what changes to expect from 3G (and why is it sometimes called UMTS) ...along with product photos and descriptions. There's no other guide that tackles and clarifies the chaotic acronym-ridden world of broadband wireless like "Wireless Broadband Handbook" ...and no other author but Regis "Bud" Bates has the formula to give you the "instant expertise" you need to compete and win in this rapidly advancing field.
