Wireless Networking in the Developing World

Wireless Networking in the Developing World

“Wireless Networking in the Developing World Second Edition: A practical guide to planning and building low-cost telecommunications infrastructure” has been created by a team of individuals who each, in their own field, are actively participating in the ever-expanding Internet. They have produced a complete book that documents their efforts to build wireless networks in the developing world.


The massive popularity of wireless networking has caused equipment costs to continually plummet, while equipment capabilities continue to sharply increase. We believe that by taking advantage of this state of affairs, people can finally begin to have a stake in building their own communications infrastructure. We hope to not only convince you that this is possible, but also show how we have done it, and to give you the information and tools you need to start a network project in your local community.
