It details the state of technology and where it's headed, as well as regulatory issues about the wireless spectrum, so that businesses can make intelligent decisions about which version of the 802.11 standard to implement to be positioned for future developments in the technology. It also explores how mobile networks will soon mesh with Wi-Fi access points to enable mobile workers to stay connected to the corporate intranet wherever they go. The book provides detailed technical coverage of the nuts and bolts of WI-Fi software and hardware: what devices are available, how they connect and what the differences are between some of the leading competitors' offerings.
