The combination of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and IEEE 802.11 (primarily Wi-Fi) has the potential to replace the public switched telephone network. This guide for telecommunications professionals describes in detail how to engineer each component of 802.11 and VoIP for reliable, high-quality voice transmission. Coverage includes such topics as the 802.11 standard, softswitch architecture, and related transport network technology.

This informative reference reveals how Voice over Wi-Fi is a scalable, secure networking solution that supports today';s demanding application needs. The book explains the ins and outs of the 802.11 standard, Softswitch architecture and applications, and related transport network technology so you can deploy full-featured Wi-Fi that has optimum range and signaling. You also learn the economics of 802.11 and Softswitch so you can measure the cost savings and return on investment of deploying Wi-Fi.

This book "rocks", September 10, 2004
This book rocks. Our guard unit just returned from Iraq where we used 802.11 phones to set up a small phone system for our Iraq friends. Cell phone stuff was too expensive and copper wire for regular phones were impossible to get, so our company commander downloaded this book off the amazon site, we read it, got some WAPS and Wi-Fi VoIP handsets and presto-phone service!

Wi-Fi VoIP on Wall Street, September 3, 2004
We recently installed a custom Wi-Fi VoIP solution for a Wall Street trading house. I don't think we could have done it without this book. It gave our engineers the background they needed to get the job done. Thank you Mr. Ohrtman for writing such a straight forward book on a difficult subject!

Good stuff!, September 3, 2004
We recently cut over a Fortune 100 client to a Wi-Fi VoIP solution. This book was VERY helpful in helping our data engineers "speak VoIP" and our telephone people to "speak VoIP". Our sales people also found having a hard back book on the subject to present the client erased their fears of this cutting edge tech technology- Wi-Fi VoIP. Without this book we possibly would have a) lost the project and b) lost the Fortune 100 client.

If you are doing anything in Wi-Fi VoIP, I highly recommend this book.

It's really a poor book ! It's worse than a typical computer magazine's new technology introduction. Just a brief introduction of many terminologies on 802.11 and VoIP, real brief ! Worse than a secondary school text book ! Instead of $69.9, it's worth less than $9.9
