Format: Paperback
I have already read through half of this book and would like to greatly compliment the authors of the book for a job well done. If you are looking to TRULY understand the 802.11 protocol, this book is a must read. Furthermore, with 802.11n, as an industry, we are still very early in our implementation of all of what 802.11n can offer. This book talks about the features that are available and implemented now and also what will likely be introduced by equipment vendors in the coming years.

In addition to 802.11n, there have been many recent amendments to the 802.11 protocol such as 802.11r, 802.11k, 802.11w and more. Many changes are still coming to equipment vendor implementation and this book includes all of the important ones.

There is a great section on spectrum analysis as well.

As a Wireless LAN professional, you NEED to have this book on your bookshelf as a reference - period.

Great job, guys.

Format: Paperback
This guide not only helps prepare an individual for success on the CWAP Certification from CWNP but also is a great desk reference. The kindle version makes a great pocket reference. This book is a mile wide and a mile deep. It provides great insight into the interworkings of the 802.11 protocol including the latest standards such as 802.11n. One great aspect is the invaluable insight given into the complex 802.11 operations to make them simple to understand. Overall, this book does a great job taking the 1200 page 802.11 standard and distilling it into a useful palletable reference and concept guide. This is a must have for any wireless engineer looking to further their knowledge and career. The authors bring a wealth of knowledge and real world experience of how the protocol is actually implemented in the real world and focusing on what packets you will actually see.

This is a great book that goes into 802.11 frame formats, protocol analysis and spectrum analysis in good detail. I'd recommend reading the CWNA book first before tackling this one. This book is especially useful if you're looking at wi-fi troubleshooting in enterprise networks. If you work for a wi-fi vendor, distributor, reseller or are a customer who has deployed a large wi-fi network, I'd recommend reading this book to get insights into troubleshooting.

This is a really good book for anyone wanting to know how wireless work in depth, it does get a little technical for those that dont have some type of networking experience or background but would be a great read for even those that don't , people could appreciate and understand a little better what it actually takes to make all that wonderful wireless stuff they all enjoy to work
