Wi-Fi Technologies and Applications: From 802.11ac and 802.11ax to Internet of Things, Drones, and Balloons
Wi-Fi has become the mainstream technology for fixed and mobile operators, as well as the retail and hospitality industry in meeting business challenges. Wi-Fi data rates and spectral efficiencies have continued to improve over the past two decades. This book covers the foundational principles of Wi-Fi, including the latest technologies and applications. It is the first book to discuss the technical details of the emerging 802.11ax amendment and provide a comparative assessment of 802.11ac and 802.11ax.Buy it here!
This study covers the world outlook for 802.11ac equipment across more than 190 countries. For each year reported, estimates are given for the latent demand, or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.), for the country in question (in millions of U.S. dollars), the percent share the country is of the region, and of the globe. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a country vis-à-vis others. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each country and across countries, latent demand estimates are created.Buy it here!
