This comprehensive research report has been developed as a fundamental resource for providing WSDOT managers with a better understanding of the current wireless environment that can guide future decisions on mobile communications. The background histories and conclusions developed as a result of this research should prove valuable in helping the WSDOT to make wise choices when investing in wireless technologies.
This research project has consisted primarily of a comprehensive literature review of wireless communications technologies to establish an historical backdrop outlining the growth of today's mobile communications systems, while also describing the current state of the art. This extensive literature review has been supplemented by personal interviews with industry representatives and WSDOT officials.
