Designing and Deploying 802.11n Wireless Networks


Gain a realistic knowing of the underlying options of the 802.11n general and the methodologies for finishing a profitable instant community installation


Practical, start-to-finish suggestions for profitable deployment of 802.11n instant LANs


With the ratification of the 802.11n instant LAN ordinary, millions of businesses are relocating swiftly towards implementation. notwithstanding, 802.11n is especially diversified from legacy 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g instant criteria, and winning deployment calls for new wisdom and methods. during this booklet, prime instant professional Jim Geier systematically provides the entire details and assistance that community architects, engineers, directors, and executives have to maximize the functionality and enterprise price of recent 802.11n networks.

Drawing on large adventure with real-world 802.11n deployments, Geier publications you thru the whole undertaking lifecycle: making plans, layout, deploy, trying out, tracking, and aid. every one section of instant LAN deployment is geared up into truly outlined steps, and a number of case experiences and hands-on workouts convey find out how to follow every one approach.

You’ll locate functional information for deploying in corporations with out present instant infrastructure, in addition to migrating from legacy 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g networks. For handy reference, Geier additionally presents an intensive, up to date instant networking thesaurus.


Jim Geier based Wireless-Nets, Ltd., and serves as its valuable advisor. His 25 years of expertise comprise research, layout, implementation, deploy, and aid of instant network-based recommendations for towns, agencies, airports, brands, warehouses, hospitals, and different amenities around the globe. he's writer of greater than a dozen books, together with instant Networks - First Step and Deploying Voice over instant LANs (Cisco Press) and enforcing 802.1X safeguard options. He has been energetic with the IEEE 802.11 operating crew constructing foreign instant LAN criteria, and chaired the IEEE overseas convention on instant LAN Implementation.
