Audience

This book is about 802.11n, which was itself a major revision to the previous specification. To get the most out of it, you’ll need to be familiar with the basics of the 802.11 MAC and how it orchestrates access to the medium. It will help to be somewhat familiar with how 802.11 networks were designed before 802.11n came along. In a sense, this book is the 802.11n-specific companion to the earlier 802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide (2nd edition), which was last revised in 2005.

The intended reader is a network professional who needs to delve into the technical aspects of 802.11n network operations, deployment, and monitoring, such as:

  • Network architects responsible for the design of the wireless network at their place of business, whether the 802.11n network is the first wireless LAN, or an upgrade from a previous 802.11 standard
