    The authors develop a framework for evaluating the signaling load in a wireless network. Using bounds and approximations, we find that the key parameter to estimate is the number of location updates between two calls. The results are dependent upon the choice of protocols, but are independent of the traffic parameters relating user calling behavior and mobility. We use the framework to draw genera...

    The authors present a control architecture, procedures, and a signaling system to support advanced personal communication services (PCS). They describe the current cellular system architecture, and its algorithms and data management schemes for providing services. They present review how current cellular systems operate with a focus on mobility management and call and connection control. The benef... View full abstract»

    It is now universally recognized that the spectrum has an economic value. This value must therefore be taken into account in the allocation decisions and must be revealed to the users of the resource, irrespective of whether they are private or public entities. In terms of general principles, all countries acknowledge the need for greater flexibility in the current allocation procedures so that th... View full abstract»

    Intelligent networks (INs) will allow wide area roaming and location of individuals so that true anytime, anywhere, any form communications can take place. Personal communications will put new demands on INs. The architectures of existing INs may need to be modified to accommodate the new capabilities required to support such services. In particular, the databases that put the “intelligence&... View full abstract»

    This article introduces various difficulties and issues in the basic scenario of integrating intelligent networks (INs) and the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM). As an example, implementation of Universal Personal Telecommunications (UPT) is considered. This article does not offer a comprehensive analysis, but rather a tutorial view. The separation of cellular networks and IN is not w... View full abstract»

    Much of the currently embedded optical fiber was originally designed for light with a wavelength of 1.3 microns. If this fiber is to be used with tomorrow's optically amplified, high-speed, long span-length lightwave system operating at 1.5 microns, the chromatic dispersion in the fiber must be compensated. Dispersion compensation will be required in long-haul l0 Gb/s systems using conventional fi... View full abstract»
