About this book

Heterogeneous Wireless Access Networks provides a unified view of the state-of-the-art protocols and architectures for heterogeneous wireless networking. The chapters cover both the theoretical concepts and system-level implementation issues related to design, analysis, and optimization of architectures and protocols for heterogeneous wireless access networks. The readers will find a rich set of references at the end of each chapter to be very valuable. The book is an important resource for both researchers and practitioners in the field of wireless networks.

Reviews

From the reviews: “How can you provide mobile users with seamless access to multiple wireless networks in a given area? Heterogeneous Wireless Access Networks addresses this challenge. Providing such a multiple-access environment requires one to take a wide range of factors into consideration, including power optimization, spectrum sharing, mobility management, routing and load balancing-and even novel on-demand pricing strategies. … written by an international cast of experts … . The book is intended as a resource for researchers and practitioners in the field.” (Bogdan Hoanca, Optics & Photonics News, April, 2010)
