For release in the Advances in Wireless Technologies and Telecommunication (AWTT) Book Series.

The Advances in Wireless Technologies and Telecommunication Book Series aims to provide researchers and academic communities with quality research on the concepts and developments in the wireless technology fields. Developers, engineers, students, research strategists, and IT managers will find this series useful to gain insight into next generation wireless technologies and telecommunication.

Future wireless network architecture is expected to encompass heterogeneous network access technologies and the Internet backbone for providing secure services including multimedia to mobile and the stationary users. Secure wireless architecture is to provide common security services across the network for wireless users and enable collaboration between wireless and network security infrastructure. The future wireless network infrastructure needs to have the right wireless networking architecture that supports high degree of scalability, performance and reliability in the most cost effective manner without compromising security or quality of service.

In this book entitled “wireless network architecture and security”, the author will present and review important developments, limitations of existing methods, models and new strategies for latest topics of wireless network architecture and security. This book can serve as a useful reference for industries, researchers, educators, and governments to promote and accelerate standardization, applications, and services of current and future wireless networks.


Nowadays there is tremendous growth in the number of wireless enabled devices including access points (ACs), personal digital assistants (PDAs), laptops, personal computers (PCs), servers, printers, smartphones, tablets and other cellular devices that are capable of attaching to WiFi, wireless broadband networks and other wireless connectivity.

There is not only an exponential growth in the number of wirelessly connected users, but the amount of bandwidth being consumed on enterprise networks is also increasing exponentially driven by video and other enterprise applications which include wireless sensor networks, health care, industry, multimedia applications and intelligent transport systems, etc.

With the advance of wireless networks, routing and network technologies introduces new challenging requirements and issues for researchers and so it is important to establish more efficient, reliable and secure network connections. This book will helpful to provide a common wireless platform for the integration of security services, allowing common security architecture to be developed for all network clients and traffic types.

The book will include exercises that make use of free and inexpensive tools that help readers gain practical experience with concepts described in the chapter. The book will provide the essential knowledge required to design the wireless network architecture, secure wireless networks and secure transmission of data, voice and video over wireless network. In addition, this book will provide hands-on exercises for designing and building robust secure wireless networks.

Target Audience

This book will guide network designers for deploying network hardware in wireless networks to get the design right, ensure proper signal levels for video traffic and to deliver optimal performance for various services like e-Healthcare, e-Agriculture, online monitoring and ICT applications. This book will also serve as a useful reference for industries, researchers, educators, and governments who are involved in designing, implementing, security and wireless networks and its applications.

Recommended Topics

The book will contain a preface, some introductory chapters and invited chapters from prominent industrialists, researchers and academicians working in this area around the whole world. The chapters will provide novel ideas and models; simulation and experimental results also motivate researchers for the future research in wireless network architecture and security domain.
