More About This Title Handbook of Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing


The huge and growing demand for wireless communication systems has spurred a massive effort on the parts of the computer science and electrical engineering communities to formulate ever-more efficient protocols and algorithms. Written by a respected figure in the field, Handbook of Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing is the first book to cover the subject from a computer scientist's perspective. It provides detailed practical coverage of an array of key topics, including cellular networks, channel assignment, queuing, routing, power optimization, and much more.
