9780130460998: Multimedia Wireless Networks: Technologies, Standards and QoS

Now that you can buy a cell phone with integrated multimedia capabilities, integrating QoS is even more important and timely since development and maintenance of those networks is crucial to product success! This book introduces the wireless networks practitioners (designers, implementers, and users) to the art of a wireless system design with integrated QoS support. To ensure users quality satisfaction, end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) support is needed the various underlining networks combined of the wide area network (WAN), the last mile distribution system (WLLs, satellite), and the WLANs. Wireless networks should be designed with integrated QoS control techniquesWith the growing optical based WANs users enjoy an abundance of bandwidth that results in no need for exercising QoS control schemes at the WANs because the edge wireless networks will suffer in the foreseeable future from limited unstable bandwidth (i.e. - unstable QoS). This trend is also observed in the new WLAN and WLL approved and proposed standards. These standards include however only the signaling mechanisms for QoS - not implementation techniques! The QoS techniques implementations are left to the designer. And designer's will turn to this book for answers.

From the Back Cover:

  • Integrating QoS in wireless multimedia network design
  • Delivering QoS in WLANs, WPANs, WMANs, cellular, and satellite networks
  • Covers every leading current and emerging wireless network standard

Integrate QoS into virtually any multimedia wireless network

From entertainment to telephony, emerging wireless systems will make possible a new generation of wireless multimedia applications. To satisfy users, network designers and developers must integrate end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) support throughout all their underlying networks: WANs, WLANs, WPANs, and "last-mile" WLL or satellite distribution systems. However, wireless network standards typically focus on signaling, leaving crucial QoS issues to implementers. Multimedia Wireless Networks is the first book to help network professionals systematically address QoS in today's most important wireless networks -- and tomorrow's.

  • Why users' wireless multimedia performance requirements will require extensive QoS support
  • The fundamentals of QoS -- and how they drive network design
  • WLAN standards from the multimedia network designer's viewpoint: IEEE 802.11, HiperLAN, and HomeRF
  • Wireless MANs: introducing the new 802.16 WirelessMAN standard
  • Integrating QoS into IEEE 802.15 and Bluetooth wireless personal area networks
  • QoS in current and emerging cellular and satellite networks
