Multiaccess, Mobility and Teletraffic for Wireless Communications, volume 6 by Xavier Lagrange
Third generation networks have been specified and are now being deployed in a few countries. They are expected to reach maturity in the next several years and to provide various services including audio, video, and world wide web browsing. Furthermore, radio terminals are expected to be integrated in a number of devices such as personal computers, personal digital assistants, and even television sets. Such a wide-usage of radio mandates ongoing research to address design of networks with high capacity while providing acceptable quality of service. This volume is the sixth in the edited series Multiaccess, Mobility and Teletraffic for Wireless Communications. It presents the selected papers for the proceedings of the Seventh Workshop (MMT'2002) held on this topic in June 2002 in Rennes, France. The aim of this workshop has been to address a set of important issues of interest to the wireless communications community. In particular, the focus of this workshop is to identify, present and discuss the theoretical and implementation issues critical to the design of land based mobile cellular and microcellular as well as wireless local area networks. Included in this book are recent research results on performance analysis of wireless packet networks, channel coding and receiver design, radio resource management in third generation systems, mobility management in cellular and mobile IP networks, performance of transport protocols (TCP) over radio link control protocols, and ad-hoc networks.
