Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 401)


The chapter presents a systematic, computer aided method supporting network planning for interior wireless networks based on IEEE 802.11 standards family. Detailed specification of features and functionalities of the proposed network planning tool available as a web service is provided together with directions of its possible expansion. Description of the service is proceeded by critical evaluation of existing commercial and noncommercial software tools for network planning.
