This complete technical guide to home network media, protocols, and implementation is the first systematic technical guide to all leading transmission media and communication protocols for in-home networking.
Using detailed simulation techniques provided as MATLAB files and SIMULINK models (downloadable from the companion website), Walter Y. Chen covers the technical challenges and implementation of twisted-pair telephone wiring, coax, powerline, and RF transmission. Next, Chen thoroughly reviews each leading communications protocol: Ethernet, HomePNA 1.0/2.0, FireWire, X-10, CEBus, HomePlug, Wireless LAN, and HomeRF. Finally, he covers today's leading mechanisms and protocols for linking the Internet with home networks. Coverage includes:
To further your understanding of the protocols discussed in the book, we are making available MATLAB and Simulink simulations created by Dr. Chen as a special supplement for readers.
Download the simulations (ZIP archive, 225 kb).
To facilitate your work with Home Networking Basis: Transmission Environments and Wired/Wireless Protocols, First Edition, we are providing links to the online resources listed in the reference section at the end of the chapters.
