A broad overview of the home networking field, ranging fromwireless technologies to practical applications
In the future, it is expected that private networks (e.g., homenetworks) will become part of the global network ecosystem,participating in sharing their own content, running IP-basedservices, and possibly becoming service providers themselves. Thisis already happening in the so-called "social networks" andpeer-to-peer file sharing networks on the Internet--makingthis emerging topic one of the most active research areas in thewireless communications field.
This book bridges the gap between wireless networking andservice research communities, which, until now, have confined theirwork to their respective fields. Here, a number of industryprofessionals and academic experts have contributed chapters onvarious aspects of the subject to present an overview of homenetworking technologies with a special emphasis on the user as thecenter of all activities. Coverage includes:
* Networked home use cases and scenarios
* Media format, media exchange, and media interoperability
* Location-aware device and service discovery
* Security in smart homes
* Secure service discovery protocol implementation for wirelessad-hoc networks
* Multimedia content protection in consumer networks
* Mobile device connectivity in home networks
* Unlicensed mobile access/generic access network
* Wireless sensor networks in the home
* Ultra-wideband and sensor networking in the home environment
With a balanced mix of practice and theory, Technologies forHome Networking focuses on the latest technologies for speedier,more reliable wireless networking and explains how to facilitateworkable end-to-end solutions from a user's perspective. This bookis an ideal resource for practicing engineers, designers, andmanagers with an interest in home networking and also serves as avaluable text for graduate students.
