    This article discusses the concept and architecture of ATM wireless access for mobile multimedia. Following an overview of wireless ATM, the authors present the concept of ATM wireless access (AWA). This concept is characterized by the following: (1) an ATM transport capability for supporting multimedia services; (2) utilization of the high frequency band for a high-speed transmission capability; ...

    The desire to provide universal connectivity for mobile computers and communication devices is fueling a growing interest in wireless packet networks. To satisfy the needs of wireless data networking, Study Group 802.11 was formed under IEEE project 802 to recommend an international standard for WLANs. A key part of the standard is the MAC protocol needed to support asynchronous and time-bounded d... View full abstract»

    Handoff is the procedure by which a user's radio link is transferred between radio ports in the network without an interruption of the user connection. We discuss how a wireless asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) network may reroute a user connection during a handoff. The authors propose a novel procedure called “nearest common node rerouting (NCNR)”. NCNR is designed to perform the rero... View full abstract»

    There are a diverse range of products and services currently on the market, but cellular or personal communications services (PCS) radio networks probably have the highest public profile. These services provide highly mobile, widely accessible two-way voice and data communications links. In general, the most complex and expensive part of the radio path for these systems is the base station. As a r... View full abstract»
