Wireless network refers to any type of computer network that is not connected by cables of any kind. It is a method by which homes, telecommunications networks and enterprise (business) installations avoid the costly process of introducing cables into a building, or as a connection between various equipment locations. Wireless telecommunications networks are generally implemented and administered using a transmission system called radio waves. This implementation takes place at the physical level (layer) of the OSI model network structure....
This study focuses on the future direction in wireless/mobile telecommunications as a standalone concept for building wireless IP systems, including commercial, campus, local and global networks. It examines the integration of the Internet and mobile networks, which are merging as a result of global demand for seamless mobile communication.
My undivided gratitude to Allah S.W.T that has given me blessings and strength to complete this project entitled “Modeling Intersatellite Optical Wireless Communication System” successfully.
I wish to express my sincere appreciation to my Supervisor, Dr. Sevia M. Idrus, for her constant guidance, counsels, and putting much effort upon the completion of this project. I also would like to thank my lecturers in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering who have taught me throughout the semesters.

The expansion and popularity of the Internet, along with the addition of wireless data functionality to wireless networks, has also contributed greatly to the growth of the wireless industry. In fact, the anticipated consumer demand for high bandwidth wireless data is commonly seen as the driving force behind current network upgrades and expansions. The number and types of companies aggressively investing in wireless technologies illustrate the importance of wireless data.
Mobile telecommunications emerged as a technological marvel allowing for access to
personal and other services, devices, computation and communication, in any place and
at any time through effortless plug and play. This brilliant idea became possible as the
result of new technologies developed in the areas of computers and communications that
were made available and accessible to the user.
During the last few years, the telecommunications sector has progressed remarkably thanks to the numerous technological advances occurring in the field. The demand for communication services has also increased explosively worldwide creating or imposing tougher capacity requirements on the telecommunication infrastructure. In developing regions, this demand reflects the great need for the basic telephone services, i.e. the Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS), whereas in developed regions it applies to...
The provision of wireless access to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) from a customer premises is known as Wireless Local Loop (WLL). The potential markets of application of WLL range from developing countries to developed ones. In both cases, the liberalization of the telecommunications market has allowed competition among operators around the world. Many communities of difficult access are still waiting for basic telephone service, which could be viable only by wireless technology, which, besides, offers a fast and cost-effective option....
The need for providing telecommunication services is growing faster than ever. For this purpose Wireless Local Loop (WLL) also known as Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) Networks is an effective alternative to the problematic wired system. Compared to mobile systems, FWA networks provide two-way communication services to near-stationary users within a small area . The next section presents an overview of multiple access schemes. Channel allocation strategies are described in the second part of the section. The emphasis here is on fixed and dynamic channel allocation schemes....
In the past three decades there were big social, economic and technological changes in the world. Scientific and technological advancement, informing of wide circle of people and their inclusion in the learning process are the main characteristics of this period. In such conditions, the need came up for exchanging different kind of messages, i.e. transmission of different kind of signals, governing the extremely fast development of the telecommunications systems.
Recently, many telecommunications operators have been looking for wireless technology to replace parts of the hard-wire infrastructure. The wireless local loop (WLL) technology  is considered as the most fitting solution as radio systems can be rapidly developed, easily extended, and are distance insensitive. Since a WLL eliminates the needs (such as wires, poles and ducts) essential for a wired network, it can significantly speed up the installation process. A typical WLL system may consist of hundreds or thousands of base stations (BSs).

A book that writer feel can be useful to readers on the following fronts: as a textbook as well as a handbook, since it covers new systems and technologies, as a guide to broadband wireless access and cellular systems, as a reference book for executives, as a textbook for college seniors and graduate students.
In this chapter, we will address the following questions: How are networks used to solve business problems? What are the primary components of a network? Why are network standards necessary? How does the Internet work? What are the benefits of wireless networks? What telecommunications problems might you encounter in a global setting?
Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1992, the state of the art of fiber-optic communication systems has advanced dramatically despite the relatively short period of only 10 years between the first and third editions. For example, the highest capacity of commercial fiber-optic links available in 1992 was only 2.5 Gb/s.
A mere 4 years later, the wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) systems with the total capacity of 40 Gb/s became available commercially.
