The Handbook of Personal Area
Networking Technologies and Protocols

Cambridge University Press, 2013

About this book … 

This handbook offers an unparalleled view of the wireless personal area networking technologies and their associated protocols. It lifts the lid on their growing adoption within the consumer electronics, domotics, sports/fitness, health and well-being sectors. 

Bluetooth low energy, ZigBee, EnOcean and ANT+ are comprehensively covered, along with other WPAN technologies including NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth classic and high speed, and WHDI. It also features 802.11ac, the Internet of Things, Wireless USB, WiGig and WirelessHD.  

The handbook shows how white space radio, cellular and Femtocells have inadvertently blurred the boundaries between personal and wide area communications, creating disruptive topologies through technology convergence. It explores how pervasive WAN technologies have spawned a new generation of consumers through the Lawnmower Man Effect (LME) and explains how our personal space has become integral to social media streams, including Twitter, Facebook and Google+. ​

Developing Practical Wireless Applications 

Digital Press Books (an imprint of Elsevier), 2007

About this book … 

In a constant stream of new ideas, wireless technologies continue to emerge offering a range of capabilities, each affording simplicity and ease-of-use. Such diversity and choice should surely raise the question, "are manufacturers using the right technology for the right product?" 

Developing Practical Wireless Applications will explore this question and, in doing so, will illustrate many of the wireless technologies currently available whilst drawing upon their individual strengths and weaknesses. More specifically, the book will draw your attention to the diverse collection of standardized and proprietary solutions available to manufacturers. As developers and innovators your choices are not restricted to any norm and, as such, a standardized or proprietary solution may afford you greater benefits in realising any product roadmap.

Marketing Wireless Products 

Butterworth-Heinemann (an imprint of Elsevier), 2004

About this book … 

Marketing Wireless Products provides a comprehensive insight into the world of wireless technology marketing by addressing the many issues faced in effectively presenting this new technology to the end user/consumer. 

The book is based upon the rationale that technology marketing, and in particular wireless technology marketing, has always proved somewhat paradoxical to those working within the industry. By drawing upon the knowledge of industry leaders within the wireless world, the reader significantly benefits from the personal experiences of those who are primarily responsible for communicating a product's message to the consumer. 

To those entering the world of technology marketing for the first time, Marketing Wireless Products provides a valuable tutorial, opening up the reader to the thoughts and experiences of industry figureheads, whilst encouraging the birth of fresh perspectives. To existing technology marketers, the book provides a valuable reference, allowing the reader to consider his/her particular approach to marketing alongside the successes and failures of peers.

Bluetooth Profiles 
The Definitive Guide 

Prentice Hall (an imprint of Pearson), 2003

About this book … 

This book is aimed at the Bluetooth community that is currently developing applications on top of the Bluetooth Core. Gratton details the usage scenarios for Bluetooth, known as Profiles, essentially defining the end-user applications and their interoperability requirements. The whole Bluetooth community strives to build applications based upon the new wireless technology that is Bluetooth: Bluetooth Profiles will show them how. Bluetooth is set to become a revolutionary communications technology that will affect the lives of us all in some shape or form. It will simplify the operation and installation of new and existing products and, despite numerous vendors providing a vast range of exciting products, its functionality will exist almost invisibly and seamlessly. This book does not aim to provide you with a history of Bluetooth nor does it explain why it was created; instead, it embodies the firm belief that it is already here.
