OFDM Wireless LANs: A Theoretical and Practical Guide
Annotation Deploy and optimize your wireless LAN using the new standard for broadband wireless communication, OFDM. A comprehensive reference written by two experts who helped create the OFDM specifications. A detailed, practical guide to OFDM WLANs does not exist, requiring readers to seek out multiple sources of information, such as white papers and research notes. Detailed explanations of the concepts and algorithms behind OFDM-context that is missing from the two OFDM books currently available. This book explains OFDM WLAN basics, including components of OFDM and multicarrier WLAN standards. It provides a practical approach to OFDM by including software and hardware examples and detailed implementation explanations. OFDM Multicarrier Wireless Networks: A Practical Approach defines and explains the mathematical concepts behind OFDM necessary for successful OFDM WLAN implementations. Juha Heiskala is a research engineer at Nokia Research Center in Irving, TX. Heiskala is active in the IEEE 802.11 standards bodies and has been tasked with developing the 802.11a system simulation on several software platforms. He is the inventor/co-inventor of three pending patents in the area of OFDM LANs and co-designed with Dr. John Terry the modulation and coding scheme for achieving 100 Mbps speeds within currently allocated band specifications for OFDM WLANs. John Terry, Ph.D. is a senior research engineer at Nokia Research Center. He is currently managing the OFDM modulation and coding project in the HSA group. Dr. Terry has published several white papers, given numerous presentations on wireless communications, and generated four patents related to OFDM WLANs. He has 10 years of experience working in wireless communications, including tenures at NASA Glen Research Center and Texas Instruments.
