Description:The IEEE 802 LAN/MAN
Standards Committee develops and maintains networking standards and
recommended practices for local, metropolitan, and other area networks.
The scope of the IEEE 802 project includes Wireless LAN (Local Area
Network), Wireless PAN (Personal Area Network), Wireless MAN
(Metropolitan Area Network), Wireless Coexistence, Media Independent
Handover Services, and Wireless RAN (Regional Access Network).
IP networks run in many environments on IEEE 802 wireless
networks. This tutorial focuses on IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN (Local Area
Network) and IEEE 802.15 Wireless PAN (Personal Area Network)
standards, presenting the latest developments in these areas as well as
the areas of interaction with the work done in the IETF.
