    A novel idea of cell reselection in a UMTS system is presented in this article. The proposed method offers performance enhancements when compared to the algorithm that complies with the 3GPP specifications. This reselection algorithm specifics new criteria that are iteratively computed in every measurement cycle. And to continuously perform the iterative nature of the algorithm, a database solutio...

    Future wireless communications will require multimode radio transceivers. This article looks at two possible transmitter architectures: direct upconversion and polar modulation. A brief review of the direct upconversion approach reveals some key limitations. This leads to a detailed study of the polar transmitter focusing on its operation, design challenges, and potential benefits. Its multi- mode... View full abstract»

    Recently, there has been increasing interest in integrating multihop relaying functionalities into cellular wireless networks. Multihop cellular networks can potentially enhance coverage, data rates, QoS performance in terms of call blocking probability, bit error rate, as well as QoS fairness for different users. However, in-depth investigations and careful system designs are required to exploit ... View full abstract»

    In this article we present various issues that need careful design for the successful implementation of OFDMA-based multihop cellular networks which need incorporation of relay terminals. The first issue we present is synchronization. We show that it is not a problematic issue for infrastructure-based relaying, where the relay is deployed by a system operator at strategic points in the cell. Secon... View full abstract»

    Cellular networks have been widely used to support many new audio-and video-based multimedia applications. The demand for higher data rate and diverse services has driven the research on multihop cellular networks (MCNs). With its ad hoc network features, an MCN can offer many additional advantages, such as increased network throughput, scalability and coverage. However, providing ad hoc capabilit...

    The multihop cellular network architecture has been actively studied due to its capability to significantly increase cellular system capacity and coverage, and at the same time greatly reduce the transmission range of mobile nodes. The majority of the literature on MCN, however, is based on discussions from the physical or link layer point of view. In this article we look at the logical MCN archit... View full abstract»
