Advanced Wireless Networks: 4G Technologies

Description:    This book provides systematic coverage of the latest global research results in the field of advanced
                wireless technology networks at a time when the industry is paving the way for 4G. The author
                adopts a logical approach, beginning each chapter with an introduction to the topic in question,
                before moving on to more complex ideas for system analysis. The discussion incorporates the
                physical layer, multiple access, the adaptive link layer, the adaptive Media Access Control Layer
                (MAC), teletraffic modeling and the adaptive Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) layer. There is
                then a detailed analysis of crosslayer optimization, mobility and handoffs, adaptive resource
                management, ad hoc and sensor networks, security and active networks. Strong sections on
                network deployment, network management, wireless information theory and energy efficient
                networks follow. Finally, QoS management and internet economics issues are explored in depth.
                The scope is thus wide-ranging, yet detailed and amply illustrated with real-life examples. It is a
                timely resource for those interested in understanding the current approaches and evolving
                directions for wireless networking.
