Book: Wireless Networking in the Developing World

By Ismael Peña-López
ICTlogy (ISSN 1886-5208). Issue #30, March 2006

 

A free book (can also pay and purchase traditional format) about wireless solutions for developing countries.

The massive popularity of wireless networking has caused equipment costs to continually plummet, while equipment capabilities continue to increase. By applying this technology in areas that are badly in need of critical communications infrastructure, more people can be brought online than ever before, in less time, for very little cost.

Authored and edited by quite a numerous team lead by Rod Flickenger, it provides information from ground physics and telecommunications (Radio Physics, Networks, Transmissions, etc.) to five detailed case studies. It has the shape of a primer, a handbook and a DIY course.

Last but not least, the way it was written – collaborative, in a networked way – looks like the authors had fun in doing it.
