    The author begins by discussing the background, defining key terms and showing how wireless information systems can be viewed as a natural evolution of computing's relentless march toward greater distribution and ubiquity of access. Next, the research issues faced by designers of wireless information systems are detailed, and some large-scale engineering challenges for such designers are presented... View full abstract»

    The conversion of terrestrial wireless telephony to digital transmission technology is just beginning. However, with more than four years of experimental laboratory and field testing, one has already learned numerous practical lessons, both positive and negative, relative to the art and science of multiple-access communication by large user populations. Europe, Japan, and North America have each d... View full abstract»

    Wireless networks are being driven by the need for providing network access to mobile or nomadic computing devices. Although the need for wireless access to a network is evident, new problems are inherent in the wireless medium itself. Specifically, the wireless medium introduces new opportunities for eavesdropping on wireless data communications. Anyone with an appropriate wireless receiver can e... View full abstract»

    The vision of nomadic personal communications is the ubiquitous availability of services to facilitate the exchange of information between nomadic end users independent of time, location, on access arrangements. To realize this, it is necessary to locate users who move from place to place. The strategies commonly proposed are two-level hierarchical strategies, which maintain a system of home and v...

    Users of portable computers would like to carry their laptops with them whenever they move from one place to another and yet maintain transparent network access through the wireless link. The existing set of network protocols do not meet this requirement since they were designed under the assumption of a stationary network topology in which hosts do not change their location over time. The authors... View full abstract»
