About this book


The success of first and second generation wireless systems has paved the way for further research opportunities towards the next generation systems. The two standards GSM and IS-95 based on TDMA and CDMA respectively, have deeply influenced our system-level understanding, bringing new perspectives on the problems associated with wireless networks and potential for innovations. This volume presents the proceedings of the second workshop on multiaccess, mobility and teletraffic for personal communications held in May 1996 in Paris, France where some important subjects on the next generation systems have been treated. These include topics dealing with information theoretic aspects, channel modeling, diversity, interference control, resource allocation, power control, packet multi-access, stochastic modeling of mobility and traffic, and wireless network control. The selected topics in this workshop and their presented set of solutions reflect the richness of the problems in wireless communications. Indeed, development of theoretical frameworks with considerable attention to the peculiar environment of wireless communications has been the prime objective of this workshop. To elaborate, consider the problem of multi-access methods which remains a challenge for researchers. A complete evaluation of an access scheme must consider different aspects such as propagation, interference, mobility and traffic modeling. Some common bases, paradigms and models are needed. For example, today, we do not have a common archetype like the A WGN channel as in classical statistical communication. Clearly, there is a need for justified assumptions and models.
