Description : Are all Wireless LANs equal? A network administrator is faced with a plethora of wireless services, complex radio issues, and products for wireless data. There are brand new protocols and products that could become obsolete a day after installation! Over 40% of all deployed WLANs do not even have minimum security activated, exposing the company's network and records to easy outsider access.The WLAN industry is characterized by rapidly changing, incomplete or proprietary standards, which can impact interoperability goals. There are complicated ownership costs, performance limitations, and security configurations that exist for WLANs which many network administrators may not understand or know how to compare. This dissertation presents a decision support system (DSS) that enables a novice network administrator to compare WLAN protocol capabilities, rank security configurations, rate IT cost efforts and use an extensive feature list. An in-depth discussion, concerning WLAN protocols, virtual private networks (VPNs), various encryption algorithms, 802.1X authentication mechanisms, and compilation of network selection criteria provides the foundation to construct a small DSS to aid WLAN network administrators. The DSS uses a set of rules to evaluate a series of potential requirements and provides pertinent WLAN decision-making information. The DSS environment allows a number of specific what-if scenarios to be reviewed and compared; multiple solutions can be tried without having to deal with the consequences. Alternative technologies are listed by the DSS to educate the decision maker about other options.
Description : The Inclusive Leader: An Applied Approach to Diversity, Change, and Management is a unique contribution to the complex subject of diversity and leadership. Dr. Ayad and Dr. Rahim build on their vast and diverse experience to translate academic concepts of diversity and inclusion as well as leadership and management into practical roadmap for students, managers, executives, and business leaders. This book is a renewal and expansion on their Amazon bestselling book Leading Through Diversity: Transforming Managers Into Effective Leaders where they revised and updated the topics of leadership vs. management, diversity and inclusion, change management, collaborative servant leadership, and team building. Further, they added new critical topics to leading in the new era, such as: diverse multinational organizations, and cyborgs and diversity and inclusion. Ultimately, this book goes beyond philosophical arguments of the past to applied management and leadership in action today and in the future.

Description : Wireless technology and handheld devices are dramatically changing the degrees of interaction throughout the world, further creating a ubiquitous network society. The emergence of advanced wireless telecommunication technologies and devices in today’s society has increased accuracy and access rate, all of which are increasingly essential as the volume of information handled by users expands at an accelerated pace. The requirement for mobility leads to increasing pressure for applications and wireless systems to revolve around the concept of continuous communication with anyone, anywhere, and anytime. With the wireless technology and devices come ?exibility in network design and quicker deployment time. Over the past decades, numerous wireless telecommu- cation topics have received increasing attention from industry professionals, a- demics, and government agencies. Among these topics are the wireless Internet; multimedia; 3G/4G wireless networks and systems; mobile and wireless network security; wireless network modeling, algorithms, and simulation; satellite based s- tems; 802.11x; RFID; and broadband wireless access.
Description : This book highlights the latest research findings, innovative research results, methods and development techniques from both theoretical and practical perspectives related to the emerging areas of information networking and their applications. It includes the Proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Network-Based Information Systems (NBiS-2017), held on August 24–26, 2017 in Toronto, Canada. Today’s networks and information systems are evolving rapidly. Further, there are dynamic new trends and applications in information networking such as wireless sensor networks, ad hoc networks, peer-to-peer systems, vehicular networks, opportunistic networks, grid and cloud computing, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, multimedia systems, security, multi-agent systems, high-speed networks, and web-based systems. These networks are expected to manage the increasing number of users, provide support for a range of services, guarantee the quality of service (QoS), and optimize their network resources. In turn, these demands are the source of various research issues and challenges that have to be overcome – and which these Proceeding address.
