Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR | ISBN: 0130666483 | edition 2003 | CHM | 400 pages | 2,56 mb
This is a guide to integrating the Internet Protocol in second generation and third generation wireless networks. Implementation issues associated with running IP in a wireless environment are examined in-depth. For each type of wireless network discussed, the authors examine the architecture, operation/deployment strategies, mobility model, routing and applications. The evolution from circuit switched to packet switched networks in 802.11,GSM, CDMA and TDMA networks is covered from a data(IP) network perspective. The authors discuss the type of applications that are prevalent in these networks today with a special emphasis on messaging. Also examined are emerging wireless IP applications including VoIP over wireless and wireless multimedia messaging. The authors also examine the standards bodies that play a role in defining the specifications for wireless networks that are evolving into extensions of the Internet (or what is referred to as the wireless Internet). Patil is the Chair of the IETF Committee charged with developing routing standards in mobile and wireless networks.
