Overview

This chapter has discussed how a commonbroadcast medium can be shared among many contending users. Multiple access prools differ primarily by the amount of coordination needed to control potentially conflicting packet transmissions. Ato neextreme is random access where no coordinationis provideda ndp acket collisions arep ossible. Atthe other endo fthe spectrum, the class of fixed assignment access prools eliminates collisions entirely butpay the price ofadditional overhead required forscheduling user access. Hybrid access proolsb etweenthese two extremes exist While these prools attempt to combine the advantages ofrandom andfixed access, they also suffer the c ombined drawbacks and overhead ofboth classes of access schemes. Amongt he many factors that determine the performance ofa n access prool include the propagation delay/packet transmission timeratio, the message arrival process, the types of feedback information available, the user population, and the ability of the user to sense the activities in the network.

Bing (satellite and hybrid communication networks, U. of Maryland) discusses the design and development of wireless access protocols, emphasizing how such protocols can efficiently support disparate classes of multimedia traffic. After introducing and surveying the evolution of wireless access protocols, he describes many important protocols that are deployed or experimented with in various broadband wireless environments, such as asynchronous transfer mode, satellite networks, mobile cellular and personal communications systems, local loops, and local-area and home networks. Seeking a broad audience ranging from novices to veterans who are undertaking research in the area, he does discuss engineering aspects but focuses on the physical understanding and keeps the mathematics to a minimum.
