This brings me to the end of this talk and in summary we've introduced the basics of electromagnetic waves, the physics, why waves behave in the way that they do and why it isn't always enough to think of straight lines, why we have to think of funny behavior like going around corners going over mountains and things like that the wavelength the frequency we have done link budgets as a main tool for calculating what's possible from one side to the other we have used the same link budgets also to calculate where can we reach users with mobile phones and laptops we've looked at antennas the main types directional behavior the patterns and lastly we've taken a brief look at hardware considerations and some recommendation of course always to be seen just as a recommendation because your particular situation your place your availability of hardware will be different depending on where you are.
