Show synopsis This book provides contributions from nineteen distinguished experts who presented their papers at the International Symposium on Personal, Indoor, Mobile, Radio Communications (PIMRe held in Barcelona, Spain during September 5-8, 2004. Wireless networking has emerged as one of the major areas for research and development in the past couple of decades and is expected to have a phenomenal growth. Extension of the cellular voice telephony to adhoc and mesh networks, wireless hotspot Internet access, wireless home and corporate networking, and wireless personal area networks have profoundly impacted our lifestyle. In response to the growth, there is a definite need for the industry, academia and government organizations to have state-of the-art knowledge in wireless networking and technology. This book presents a collection of the views, addressing the technical challenges, possible solutions, and experimental results, from a number of diverse resources in a timely manner. The contents include: Trends in Wireless Networks: multilayer system models and cross layer interactions, overlay networks, smart antennas, fixed relay stations and CDMA air interfaces. Wireless LANs and Adhoc Networks: IEEE 802.11 based self- organizing adhoc wireless network (SOHAN) and experimental results, VoIP in an IEEE 802.11b network, mobile backbone network protocol (MBNP) based routing, MAC and, QoS; Vertex-linked Infrastructure (VLI) for adhoc networks, probabilistic models for mobile positioning. Mobile Wireless Internet and Satellite Applications: theoretical framework for wireless networks, IPv6 mobility architecture, mobile Internet performance introducing proxy services, satellite communication -digitalvideo broadcasting, onboard switching, QoS, and aeronautical applications; mobile satellite communication systems for broadband multimedia. Encoding, Algorithms and Performance: progress of channel coding techniques - Turbo and low-density parity check (LDPe codes, Time-diffusion Synchronization protocol (TDP) for sensor networks and linear matrix modulation (linear space-time code with linear combination alphabet). Whether you're a telecommunications/networking specialist, systems engineer or a scientist, Emerging Location Aware Broadband Wireless Adhoc Networks provides valuable insights and possible technical solutions from various experts in wireless networking to develop wireless systems meeting future application requirements.
