Wireless technology has expanded rapidly over recent years, especially in its influence on mobile and distance technologies. WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES: CONCEPTS, METHODOLOGIES, TOOLS AND APPLICATIONS is a three volume compendium of the latest research, case studies, theories, and methodologies within the field of wireless technologies. Wireless operations permit services, such as long range communication, that are impossible or impractical to implement with the use of wires. The ever expanding field encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable two way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networks. This reference guide serves academics and practitioners alike, indexed and categorized easily for study and application.
