Wireless Networking Technical Literature

Our engineering team has tackled some challenging technical issues and has put together engineering documentation that makes the issues clear. Connect802 Technical Literature is original wireless networking technical material written internally at Connect802. The BICSI News articles are reprints from Joe Bardwell's regular feature articles in the BICSI News magazine in 2007. The General Technical Literature section contains downloads of specifications, documentation and technical white papers that the Connect802 engineering team feels are relevant to the 802.11 Wi-Fi wireless LAN RF engineer, IT specialist, WLAN decision maker, and anyone who is focused on wireless RF engineering as part of their career.


RF Engineering Perspective: "I'm Going To Let My Chauffeur Answer That"
Math and Physics for the 802.11 wireless LAN engineer. This is a highly technical (but very readable) paper detailing the principles of electromagnetism and RF signal propagation. The paper includes an overview of Maxwell's wave equations and a derivation of the Fresnel Zone formulae from a Pythagorean representation of out-of-phase multipath signal waveforms. The paper is intended for RF communication engineers and experienced WLAN designers who seek to understand the underlying physics behind 802.11 wireless network. Written by Joe Bardwell, Chief Scientist, Connect802 Corporation. Over 10,000 Downloads!
