Metody lokalizacji użytkowników w sieciach 802.11

Languages of publication



Systemy lokalizacji terminali w sieciach 802.11 stały się istotną kwestią. Wiele nowych aplikacji bazuje na śledzeniu użytkowników. Informacje o lokalizacji punktów dostępowych mogą również pomóc we właściwym doborze kanałów w małych sieciach domowych.
The location systems for 802.11 devices become important issue. There is a lot of new applications which require the asset tracking. The information about station location could also help in proper channel selection in small home networks.
