Bing (satellite and hybrid communication networks, U. of Maryland) discusses the design and development of wireless access protocols, emphasizing how such protocols can efficiently support disparate classes of multimedia traffic. After introducing and surveying the evolution of wireless access protocols, he describes many important protocols that are deployed or experimented with in various broadband wireless environments, such as asynchronous transfer mode, satellite networks, mobile cellular and personal communications systems, local loops, and local-area and home networks. Seeking a broad audience ranging from novices to veterans who are undertaking research in the area, he does discuss engineering aspects but focuses on the physical understanding and keeps the mathematics to a minimum.
