    Electric lighting is so much a part of modern life that it is easy to imagine that everyone wanted it as soon as it became available. That was not the case. In May 1882, Sir William Siemens was questioned by a House of Commons Committee about the electricity supply that his company was then running at Godalming, in Surrey, to the south of London. Siemens had to admit-reluctantly-that after six mon... View full abstract»

    The rapid development of the Internet and the World Wide Web has created a global network that will soon become a physical embodiment of the entire human knowledge and a complete integration of the global information activities. The traditional approach to access the network is through a computer physically tied to the network. As broad-band wireless takes off, the traditional tethered approach wi... View full abstract»

    With the emergence of broadband wireless networks and increasing demand of multimedia information on the Internet, wireless multimedia services are foreseen to become widely deployed in the next decade. Real-time video transmission typically has requirements on quality of service (QoS). However, wireless channels are unreliable and the channel bandwidth varies with time, which may cause severe deg... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a vision for wireless communication systems beyond the third generation, which comprises a combination of several optimized access systems on a common IP-based medium-access and core network platform. These different access systems will interwork via horizontal and vertical handover, service negotiation, and global roaming. The different access systems are allocated to differen...

    Next-generation broadband satellite networks are being developed to carry bursty Internet and multimedia traffic in addition to the traditional circuit-switched traffic (mainly voice) on a global basis. These satellites provide direct network access for personal applications as well as interconnectivity to the terrestrial remote network segments. The main requirement in success of these networks i... View full abstract»

    The radio spectrum is a unique, ubiquitous natural resource shared by various types of services. Unlike many other natural resources, it can be repeatedly reused. In practice, though, it remains a finite resource, and it can only accommodate a limited number of simultaneous users. This restriction requires careful planning and management for maximizing its value for all services. This is especiall... View full abstract»

    Wireless local area networks (WLANs) designed as wireless ATM systems to extend the services of fixed ATM networks to mobile users appear best suited to provide a guaranteed quality of service (QoS) for wireless IP networks. HiperLAN/2 is an ETSI/BRAN standard providing convergence layers for both IP and ATM classes of service. Besides a description of HiperLAN/2 and its Home Environment Extension... View full abstract»

    Scheduling algorithms that support quality of service (QoS) differentiation and guarantees for wireless data networks are crucial to the development of broadband wireless networks. Wireless communication poses special problems that do not exist in wireline networks, such as time-varying channel capacity and location-dependent errors. Although many mature scheduling algorithms are available for wir... View full abstract»
