A major challenge in operation of wireless communications systems is the efficient use of radio resources. One important component of radio resource management is power control, which has been studied extensively in the context of voice communications. With increasing demand for wireless data services, it is necessary to establish power control algorithms(More)
In this paper we consider distributed power control in a multicell wireless data system and study the effect of pricing transmit power. Drawing on our earlier work in [1], we formulate the QoS of a data user via a utility function measured in bits per Joule. We consider distributed power control, modeled as a non-cooperative game, where users maximize their(More)
We propose using a wireless network to facilitate communications between sensors/switches and control units located within a vehicle. In a typical modern vehicle, the most demanding sensor will require a latency of approximately less than 1 msec with throughput of 12 kbps. Further, the network will need to support about 15 sensors with this requirement. The(More)
We formulate the optimum personal paging area problem as an interval estimation problem, with an aim to reduce the paging signaling cost by minimizing the size of the paging area. A paging algorithm is developed to setup the optimal one-step paging area that contains the locations of a mobile user with a high probability and thus to gain a coverage that is(More)
Given the user distribution in a cell, we investigate the two problems of how to appropriately sectorize the cell such that we minimize the total received power and the total transmit power of all the users, while giving each user acceptable quality of service in both cases. For the received power optimization problem, we show that the optimum arrangement(More)
Statistical characterization of in-car wireless communication channels has recently gained significance, mainly due to the possibility of deploying a wireless sensor network in the vehicle. In this paper, we report different aspects of a statistical analysis of four representative in- car wireless channels based on the received power data collected from a(More)
