Wireless LANs End to End is a comprehensive look at the technology from the standpoint of the IT Professional. The book goes above and beyond a simple re-hashing of the specification to provide practical implementation information on WLAN technology with special coverage of 802.11b and WLAN planning, configuration, implementation, troubleshooting and security considerations. Special sections on a WLAN site survey (industry leaders state the key to implementing an effective, efficient WLAN that performs the same as wired LAN is a site survey) and WLAN security are also included.

This book is part of the End to End series, a new series dedicated to cutting-edge technologies designed to provide proven solutions, real-world tips and best practices. The End to End series takes a no "techno-babble" modular approach in explaining cutting edge wireless technology. Special features include case studies, real-life implementations and wireless decision tree.
