    Recently, hot spots served by public area wireless networks (PAWNs) have been proposed as cost-effective complementary infrastructures to third-generation cellular systems. PAWNs are base-station-oriented wireless LANs, offering tens of megabits per second to public or private hot spot users. Since PAWNs operate in the unlicensed spectrum, channel control methodologies are needed to overcome poten... View full abstract»

    This article introduces the emerging IEEE 802.11e standard to support quality of service at the medium access control layer. Both the contention-based and contention-free centrally controlled channel access mechanisms are introduced by describing not only the MAC protocol operations and parameters, but also the call admission techniques and scheduling algorithm that have been designed for IEEE 802...

    Revolutionary drivers for 4G include a push toward universal wireless access and ubiquitous computing through seamless personal and terminal mobility. One of the major challenges for seamless mobility is the criterion of a vertical handoff protocol: a handoff protocol for users that move between different types of networks. Traditional operations for handoff detection policies, decision metrics, a... View full abstract»

    This article proposes the use of a smart volume tuner (SVT) for 2G, 2.5G, and 3G cellular phones based on fuzzy logic for improving voice quality in the presence of background noise. The smart volume tuner makes use of the noise level class information generated by a system for fuzzy pattern classification of background noise. The SVT is personalized by using the audiogram to design the fuzzy rule... View full abstract»

    Third-generation wireless communication faces the challenges of rapidly increasing mobile user demand against limited radio bandwidth. Splitting cells into smaller cells can reduce the frequency reuse distance to improve network capacity within a certain area. Other than increasing the cost of the fixed infrastructure, cell splitting also causes the problem of increasing handoff rate and event the... View full abstract»
