The success of first and second generation wireless systems has paved the way for further research opportunities towards the next generation systems. The two standards, GSM and IS-95 based on TDMA and CDMA respectively, have deeply influenced our system-level understanding, bringing new perspectives on the problems associated with wireless networks and potential for innovations. This volume presents a collection of papers on multiaccess, mobility and tele-traffic for personal communications treating many of the important subjects of the next generation systems. These include topics dealing with theoretical information aspects, channel modeling, diversity, interference control, resource allocation, power control, packet multi-access, stochastic modeling of mobility and traffic, and wireless network control. Multiaccess, Mobility and Teletraffic for Personal Communications is an important book for researchers and students working in the area of Wireless Communication and Mobile Computing. It will be a valuable reference source and can be used as a secondary text for an advanced course on this subject.

Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the May 1996 second workshop on multi-access, mobility, and teletraffic for personal communications, held in Paris, France. The prime objective of the workshop was development of theoretical frameworks with considerable attention to the wireless communications environment. Topics include information theoretic aspects, channel modeling, diversity, interference control, resource allocation, power control, packet multi-access, stochastic modeling of mobility and traffic, and wireless network control.
