Wireless Communications Technology Landscape

Wireless networks are becoming more pervasive, accelerated by new wireless communications technologies, inexpensive wireless equipment, and broader Internet access availability. These networks are transforming the way people use computers and other personal electronics devices at work, home, and when traveling.
