    Orthogonal frequency division multiple access is the basis for several emerging mobile communication systems. Prominent examples are the 3GPP long term evolution as the successor of UMTS high-speed packet access and the IEEE 802.16 system, advanced by the WiMax forum. On a system level, OFDMA is basically a combination of time and frequency division multiple access. In cellular TDM/FDM systems, in... View full abstract»

    In this article, we explore services and capabilities that can be enabled by the localization of various assets in a data center or IT environment. We also describe the underlying location estimation method and the protocol to enable localization. Finally, we present a management framework for these services and present a few case studies to assess benefits of location-based services in data cente... View full abstract»
