    An ad hoc mobile network is a collection of mobile nodes that are dynamically and arbitrarily located in such a manner that the interconnections between nodes are capable of changing on a continual basis. In order to facilitate communication within the network, a routing protocol is used to discover routes between nodes. The primary goal of such an ad hoc network routing protocol is correct and ef...

    Software radio has emerged from obscurity to be heralded by some in the personal communications industry as offering a potential solution to man's historical inability to achieve common global standards. In such a scenario reconfigurable terminals, able to adapt to the differing regional radio interfaces, if feasible in the appropriate timescales, appear a very attractive option. In reality, the f...

    The interest and demand for convergent solutions affecting fixed and mobile services has grown due to liberalization in the service offering regime and induced levels of competition among operators. A variety of convergence actions has been planned and studied by both incumbent and new entrant operators in Europe, where innovative service packages are already being offered. Any convergence initiat... View full abstract»
