Designers of wireless networks face a problem which is multidimensional in nature, where issues of multiaccess, radio propagation, antennas, mobility and teletraffic all need to be understood and simultaneously addressed in order to create a properly functioning system. This book does not merely concentrate on one of these issues but takes a broader view, and presents a mix of papers addressing systems and networking issues. Multiaccess, Mobility and Teletraffic: Advances in Wireless Networks addresses fundamental theoretical issues about future wireless networks, such as capacity improvements theoretically attainable from spread spectrum systems, and practical concerns associated with current networks such as signalling, implementation of GSM and CDMA networks, and implementation of packet data services over wireless networks. As well as the papers looking at specific technologies, this book contains a number of papers discussing more generic problems in mobile networks, such as issues associated with handoff, resource management, frequency reuse, mobility, signalling and wireless packet networks. Multiaccess, Mobility and Teletraffic: Advances in Wireless Networks covers a broad range of issues associated with wireless networks and provides a very interesting snapshot of the current state-of-the-art. It will be of interest to all researchers and practitioners working in the field of wireless communications and networks.

Editorial Reviews

Comprises 27 papers from the December 1997 workshop in Melbourne. The papers address fundamental theoretical issues about future wireless networks<-->such as capacity improvements theoretically attainable from spread spectrum systems<-->as well as practical concerns associated with current networks such as signaling, implementation of GSM and CDMA networks, and implementation of packet data services over wireless networks. Specific topics include improved switched diversity combining using fuzzy adaptive control; iterative interference reduction in CDMA; the performance of a novel indoor GSM base station system; optimum transmission power in high capacity umbrella cell systems; and dynamic resource allocation for broadband services in fixed wireless networks.
