"...anyone wanting an in-depth, up-to-date guide to this increasingly important subject should start here..." (Managing Information, 2004)

From the Back Cover

Expert guidance on how to successfully build and deploy Mobile Virtual Private Networks

Mobile Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have the potential to dramatically improve business productivity and give service providers new revenue opportunities. This in-depth tutorial will help professionals in the field understand both the technology of Mobile VPNs and other advanced wireless data services, as well as their implementation and practical deployment.

Shneyderman and Casati discuss the current state of standardization in wireless data. They then explore advanced aspects of mobile technologies, VPN and IP services, providing important information about how Mobile VPN is supported in current and next generation cellular wireless systems.

This book introduces a new approach to classifying VPN and other private network access methods and gives a glimpse into where the field is headed by uncovering open issues and future trends in wireless data communications.

Offering essential implementation guidance on Mobile VPNs, this book:
* Teaches how to implement Mobile VPNs and other advanced data services within wireless systems such as GPRS, CDMA2000, UMTS, and WLAN
* Provides a tutorial on relevant topics in data networking and wireless communications
* Details radio interface fundamentals and technical aspects of cellular systems of interest
* Examines technologies like IP tunneling, security, roaming, addressing, AAA brokerage, and the latest standards as applied in wireless data systems frameworks
* Analyzes the equipment involved in Mobile VPNs

First Sentence
Contracting margins and revenues per user, cost-based competition, and focus on customer retention rather than acquisitions are all signs that mobile telephony is not likely to show significant revenue growth-comparable to that enjoyed over the past decade Read the first page

Format: Paperback
I have just finished going through this book yesterday and realized, I
didn't have this much detailed knowledge on the subject (even being a
networking professional for over 20 years). The book is definitely lives
up to the expectations, in fact I am yet to see a better book on
cellular wireless data (though this is not a main topic here). This book
goes quite in depth on some very unique aspects of GPRS and CDMA2000
data services, while presenting fresh view on the problem and uncovering
some of the interesting industry secrets. This book is a must have for
any one who wants to master wireless data and learn what Mobile or
wireless VPN is about.
Shneyderman and Casati do a great job of writing about this fascinating
topic. This book makes a great reference for data and wireless pros as
well as a good (but not too easy) introduction for any beginner. Style
is great and fresh too. Recommend it to all.

This is a very good book published right on-time. Covers hot mobile communications topics with good enough detail. Introduces mobile data communication concepts at first and explains mobile VPN's for 2.5G and 3G technologies. Although concentrated on CDMA2000 in stead of W-CDMA, this book is still useful on mobile data comunications and VPNs. Warmly recommended.
