    Although early reports about electricity and magnetism date back before Christ, it took another 2000 years until in the eighteenth century, men like B. Franklin, A. Volta, C. Coulomb, L. Galvani, and many others studied more intensely electrostatic and magnetostatic effects. In contrast to mechanics, hydrodynamics, and astronomy, which belonged to the mathematics discipline, electricity and magnet... View full abstract»

    A number of industry groups are planning to construct satellite systems that will provide a personal communications service (PCS) (typically voice, data, and fax) to users over small, hand-held, cellular-type telephones. Some of these systems (e.g., Iridium and Globalstar) will be constructed using satellites in low Earth orbit. Two (Ellipso and ICO) will employ medium Earth orbit (3-8-h period), ...

  • Sample size required in error-rate measurement on fading channels

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):1435 - 1441
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB)

    This paper presents analytical and numerical results on the sample size required to achieve a specified root mean square (RMS) error in estimating the error rate for flat fading channels having complex Gaussian statistics. The analysis shows that for the large sample sizes normally used in estimating error rates, k, the required sample size normalized to the required sample size for independent sy...

    Cellular radio started in the early 1980s by using analog technologies. Research in voice coding, modulation, and channel coding resulted in second-generation cellular radio based on digital technologies, which were introduced in the early 1990s. These were all based on advanced time division multiple access technology, resulting in better capacity and lower cost. Today, these digital technologies... View full abstract»

    In modeling teletraffic performance of mobile cellular networks, previous work has made use of the concept of dwell time-a random variable that describes the amount of time a platform remains in a cell, sector, or microcell. The dwell time was characterized as a negative exponential variate or the sum of negative exponential variates. With a suitable state description, this allows the use of the m... View full abstract»
