Wi-Fi System Engineering

As service providers try to deal with our unquenchable thirst for Internet connectivity, the role of Wi-Fi has grown from a simple wireless LAN technology to a critical element of the communication mix. This course therefore focuses on the IEEE 802.11 family of technologies and in so doing, explains the architecture and operation of a Wi-Fi network. In addition, the enhancements of security and QoS are also explored.
