Wireless edge that uses optical core next generation networks will be as ubiquitous as traditional telephone networks, and today's engineering students must be prepared to meet the challenges of their development and deployment. Filled with illustrations and practical examples from industry the book provides a brief but comprehensive introduction to these technologies. This book covers wireless networks such as wireless local area networks (WLAN), wireless personal area networks (WPAN), wireless access, 3G/4G cellular, and RF transmission, as well as optical networks like long-haul and metropolitan networks, optical fiber, photonic devices, VLSI chips.
