Infusion
Clint Smith

ASI Publishing is proud to announce, “INFUSION,” a sci-fi novel by Clint Smith P.E. is available now.

Set in a time and a place not unlike our own, “Infusion” is a thought-provoking and fast-paced novel, with contemporary conservationist themes, about the exploitation of the Earth’s resources by an alien race, and the moral and ethical conflicts that arise due to the limited resources of the universe.

The Kimoph and Zeron live on two sister planets orbiting a common sun. The resource the Kimophians and Zeron’s need is dattan, which is vital to their survival. Their need for dattan is a result of bio weapons used during the civil war between the two plants that destroyed both eco-systems.

However Consortium law forbids the extraction of dattan from any planet in the Preserve. Earth is located in the Preserve. The law was enacted after the consortium destroyed another planet trying to collect dattan to restore their damaged eco-systems. The KIEF, an environmental police force, enforces the law protecting the Preserve.

The Consortium has found itself at war again. The conflict began over resources needed for dattan production. Dattan production has been declining and new sources are needed.

The KIEF has been investigating a major plot to extract dattan illegally. The suspects include several corporations and potentially the Consortium itself. The undercover investigator for the KIEF is Kiren Hillel.

Kiren Hillel is now in a bind. She is a crewmember onboard the cargo ship Curgan heading toward Earth to extract dattan. Kiren is unable to communicate with the KIEF to summon help and prevent the crime. She is now faced with the dilemma of helping commit the crime she swore to prevent in order to stay alive. Her problems are compounded when an alien from Earth is brought on board, by accident, and she has to care for it and keep it safe.


3G Wireless with WiMax and WiFi
by Clint Smith, John Meyer

Synopsis

While it's too early to determine whether wireless companies can achieve major additional revenue streams due to 802.11 services alone, 802.11 is fast becoming a standard platform for computing devices. Each new hot spot increases pressure for cellular providers to offer WiFi integration into their existing 2.5/3G networks. And 802.16 has the potential to create huge new revenue streams, as a wireless broadband competitor to DSL and cable modems. This book covers the design and integration of 802.11 (Wi-Fi) and 802.16 (Wi-MAX) into existing wireless operation systems. It is rigorously mathematical and aimed at the engineering community, rather than the enterprise segment.

The integration of 802.11 (Wi-Fi) and 802.16 (Wi-Max) into wireless networks is a major new potential revenue stream for service providers. This rigorous tutorial shows communications engineers how to re-engineer existing networks to integrate the new standards.

Wireless Network Performance Handbook
By: Smith, Clint Gervelis, Curt

From Book News, Inc.
Smith and Gervelis' experience in industry is in evidence in this thorough and practical text to the wireless network industry. The text emphasizes application and is filled with examples and solutions from actual practice. Five platforms are covered: AMPS, IS-136, GSM/GPRS, CDMA, AND iDEN. Both the RF and network aspects of the engineering are described. With emphasis throughout on problem solving, the text moves from a description of the key systems--including PCS, WLL, WAP, Bluetooth, VoIP--to applications in radio engineering, wireless mobile radio technology, RF design guidelines, and system performance. Practical chapters are also included on billing and charging, revenue assurance, system documentation, network and RF planning, and organization and training.Copyright © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

3G Wireless Networks
By: Smith, Clint Collins, Daniel

Wireless Networks, experts Clint Smith and Daniel Collins dissect critical issues of compatibility, internetworking, and voice/data convergence, providing you with in-depth explanations of how key standards and protocols intersect and interconnect. This guide digs into the gritty details of day-to-day network operations, giving you a chance to understand the difficulties service providers will experience in making the changeover from 2nd Generation systems (CDMA etc.) to 2.5 Generation systems like WAP and EDGE and finally to full throttle 3G networks. It describes key standards, digs deep into the guts of relevant network protocols, and details the full range of compatibility issues between the US (CDMA 2000) and European (WCDMA) versions of the standard. Plenty of call flow diagrams show you exactly how the technologies work.
