    This article provides a detailed discussion of wireless resource and channel allocation schemes. The authors provide a survey of a large number of published papers in the area of fixed, dynamic, and hybrid allocation schemes and compare their trade-offs in terms of complexity and performance. We also investigate these channel allocation schemes based on other factors such as distributed/centralize... View full abstract»

    Integration of fixed and mobile networks can be facilitated by reusing fixed network signaling protocols in mobile networks. In this case, mobility aspects of signaling transfer must be handled by the lower-layer protocols in the signaling stack. This article presents a simple connectionless network-layer protocol that implements transparent mobility support and can therefore be used for efficient... View full abstract»

    The Personal Access Communications System (PACS) is an American National Standards Institute common air interface standard developed for the 1.9 GHz PCS band in the United States. PACS uses frequency division duplexing technology and is optimized to support low-mobility pedestrian outdoor usage and wireless local loop applications in a medium-range environment. PACS-Unlicensed B (PACS-UB) is a ver... View full abstract»

    We explore various network layer concepts that play a crucial role in the design of mobile networking systems. We show that mobility is essentially an address translation problem and is best resolved at the network layer. We describe services that must be supported at the network layer to carry out the task of address translation. Using these service primitives as building blocks, we describe a ne...
