    Aims and Scope


    The wireless communication revolution has brought fundamental changes to data networking, telecommunication, and has made integrated networks a reality. Wireless Networks focuses on the networking and user aspects of this field. It provides a single common and global forum for archival value contributions documenting these fast growing areas of interest. The journal publishes refereed articles dealing with research, experience and management issues of wireless networks. It allows readers to benefit from experience, problems and solutions described. Regularly addressed issues include: network architectures for personal communication systems, wireless LANS, radio, tactical and other wireless networks, design and analysis of protocols, network management and network performance, network services and service integration, nomadic computing, internets working with cable and other wireless networks, standardization and regulatory issues, specific system descriptions, applications and user interface, and enabling technologies for wireless networks.
