ISBN: 9781580536387

Whether gaming, constant communications and connectivity, or streaming video and audio is the future killer app that keeps consumers reaching for mobile devices, you can turn to this book for the hands-on technology details you need to know to prepare yourself and your organizations for tomorrow's world of wireless multimedia. The books includes in-depth discussions on the hottest topics in this area, including AAA, multiple access protocols, IPv6 and adaptive technologies. Such resource management strategies as power control, user admission techniques, and congestion control are fully explained, helping you design wireless multimedia systems that provide the required degree of quality of service by effectively utilizing limited radio resources. Other resource management strategies covered include adaptive transmission and reception techniques. The difference in designing packet networks for real-time services is compared to the current design for non real-time services. Moreover, existing and emerging technologies for supporting Wireless Personal Area Networks are explained, along with possible applications and devices. The book concludes with a look at a Uniform Global Infrastructure├╣ that can be achieved with the technologies explained in previous chapters.
