About this book

This brief focuses on radio resource allocation in a heterogeneous wireless medium. It presents radio resource allocation algorithms with decentralized implementation, which support both single-network and multi-homing services. The brief provides a set of cooperative networking algorithms, which rely on the concepts of short-term call traffic load prediction, network cooperation, convex optimization, and decomposition theory. In the proposed solutions, mobile terminals play an active role in the resource allocation operation, instead of their traditional role as passive service recipients in the networking environment.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book, part of the ‘Springer Briefs in Computer Science’ series, provides the appropriate environment for describing, in a concise manner, forward-thinking solutions for technologies under development. … this book offers a well-thought-out and nicely deployed set of ideas and solutions on a hot topic. It presents sufficient analysis, which provides a companion for system developers, network designers, academics, and the research community in general. This well-structured reference work contains a wealth of useful material.” (Harry Skianis, Computing Reviews, March, 2014)
