    More than 99 percent of all lasers manufactured in the world today are semiconductor laser diodes. Reliability is a concern in every laser diode application, whether it is a simple $10 laser pointer or a space-qualified optical transmitter link. The commercial success of a laser supplier rests largely on his ability to develop a robust manufacturing process that consistently produces reliable devi... View full abstract»

    To upgrade IEEE 802.17 Resilient Packet Ring networks by WDM, most previously reported approaches deploy WDM on the ring, requiring modifications of all nodes at the architecture and/or protocol level without significantly enhancing the performance of RPR apart from increased capacity and optical bypassing capability. In this article we aim at rethinking the box. Leveraging on the dark fiber infra... View full abstract»

    WDM EPONs not only allow for cautious pay-as-you-grow upgrades of single-channel TDM EPONs but also avoid linearly increasing polling cycle times for an increasing number of ONUS. In this article, we first provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the art of TDM EPONs and recently reported dynamic bandwidth allocation algorithms, including decentralized scheduling schemes. After reviewing p... View full abstract»

    In this article we present the details of a generalized multiprotocol label switching controlled wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) optical network developed under the Optical Network Focused Interest Group (ONFIG) program in Singapore. The WDM network is controlled through a GMPLS control plane that consists of CR-LDP, LMP, and OSPF-TE. We conducted various field trials on the GMPLS-capable W... View full abstract»

    The third-generation WCDMA standard has been enhanced to offer significantly increased performance for packet data and broadcast services through the introduction of high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA), enhanced uplink, and multimedia broadcast multicast services (MBMS). This article provides an overview of the key technologies used, the reasons behind their selection, and their integration ... View full abstract»

    This article presents key enhancements to CDMA2000 1×EV-DO systems embodied in 1×EV-DO Revision A. These enhancements provide significant gains in spectral efficiency and substantial improvements in QoS support relative to 1×EV-DO Revision 0. In particular, 1×EV-DO Revision A approximately doubles the uplink spectral efficiency and doubles the number of terminals with delay... View full abstract»

    In this article we analyze performance of VoIP services over 1xEVDO-Revision A (DO-Rev A) networks and show that high-quality VoIP with unconstrained mobility and high capacity can be achieved. Together with quality of service (QoS) requirements, we emphasize practical issues such as mobility, degradation of feedback-channel quality, and packet overheads. Novel techniques are presented for voice p... View full abstract»

    This article provides the principles and practice of how interference cancellation can be implemented on the EV-DO Rev A reverse link. It is shown that applying interference cancellation to CDMA achieves the multiple access channel sum rate capacity for either frame synchronous or asynchronous users. The per user SINR gain from space-time interference cancellation translates directly into a CDMA c... View full abstract»

    This article describes the design and best practices for macromobility management in EV-DO, including mobility across EV-DO subnets and mobility across network that support different air interface technology (i.e., between 1x and EV-DO, or between different revisions of EVDO). In particular, the following three topics related to the EV-DO systems are discussed in detail: Conditions under which an ... View full abstract»

    To offer wireless data access services that are more efficient than GPRS or UMTS networks, public WLANs are in a predominant position to embrace the wireless broadband era. Reusing the existing mechanisms for user authentication, access control, billing, and roaming handling procedures in mobile territory to construct a complementary network, public WLAN (PWLAN) has drawn the attention of cellular...
