Wireless and mobile communications have grown exponentially. The average individual now possesses a minimum of two smart mobile devices. The consistent advancement of mobile devices feeds the ever-growing appetite for faster bandwidth, uninterrupted connectivity, applications to fulfill the needs of consumers and businesses, and security for all of this information. Mobile Devices: Tools and Technologies provides readers at all levels of technical expertise with an understanding of mobile device concepts, application development processes, networking and infrastructure, and security methods.

This book is organized into four sections, with chapters contributed by engineers with extensive real-world experience in the mobile and wireless field. The first section discusses the current mobile device landscape, including the latest technology innovations, personal and business use trends, and mobile operating systems and applications. The second section focuses on the application development process, from strategy and process through the development phases, to production and launch. This section covers both Android and iOS application development.

In the third section, the authors explore mobile access standards, network types, and infrastructure components. This section also covers proximity communications standards, including Bluetooth, NFC, and RFID. The book concludes with a look at mobile device security, including mobile encryption methods, wireless security levels, and corporate security and workforce management strategies.
