    IEEE 802.16 technology has emerged as a competitive alternative to wireline broadband access solution. IEEE 802.16 can provide quality of service (QoS) guarantees for heterogeneous classes of traffic with different QoS requirements. The standard, however, leaves open the resource management and scheduling issues, which are crucial components to guarantee QoS performance. The main objective of this... View full abstract»

    During the last decade, a new class of large-scale globally-distributed network services and applications have emerged. Those systems are flexible in the sense that they can select their communication path among a set of available ones. However, ceaselessly gathering network information such as latency to select a path is infeasible due to the large amount of measurement traffic it would generate.... View full abstract»

    The Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) standards suite is based on multiple cooperating standards mainly developed by the IEEE. In particular, we focus this paper on the core design aspects of DSRC which is called Wireless Access in Vehicular Networks (WAVE). WAVE is highlighted in IEEE 1609.1/.2/.3/.4. The DSRC and WAVE standards have been the center of major attention in both research a... View full abstract»

    Software Defined Radio (SDR) may provide flexible, upgradeable and longer lifetime radio equipment for the military and for civilian wireless communications infrastructure. SDR may also provide more flexible and possibly cheaper multi-standard-terminals for end users. It is also important as a convenient base technology for the future context-sensitive, adaptive and learning radio units referred t... View full abstract»

    The recent increasing interest in ad hoc networks has motivated the study and development of interference models capable of capturing the intrinsic characteristics of this kind of network, such as the lack of a central coordination and the consequent distributed nature of some of the network functions (e.g., medium access control and routing protocols). As a consequence, a myriad of interference m... View full abstract»
