Second-generation (2G) mobile radio standards have not been designed with video communications in mind, although the employment of error-resilient, constant-bit-rate proprietary video codecs over these systems is realistic. The third-generation (3G) systems are capable of providing higher rates and better communications integrity in support of video(More)
Since wireless channels exhibit dramatic near-instantaneous channel-quality fluctuations, it is unrealistic to expect that a transceiver relying on time-invariant modulation and coding modes is capable of delivering as good a performance as a near-instantaneously adaptive arrangement. Hence, a near-instantaneously adaptive joint-detection code division(More)
This paper provides a broad overview of the multiuser detection literature of the past few years in a nonmathematical, easily accessible approach. The treatment is then extended to the comparative study of channel-quality controlled burst-by-burst (BbB) adaptive code division multiple access (CDMA) detection such as parallel interference cancellation,(More)
A burst-by-burst (BbB) adaptive speech transceiver is proposed, which can drop its source coding rate and speech quality under transceiver control in order to invoke a more error resilient modem mode among less favorable channel conditions. The adaptive multirate (AMR) speech codec is operated at bit rates of 4.75 and 10.2 kb/s and combined with source(More)
Spread adaptive quadrature amplitude modulated (AQAM) code-division multiple access (CDMA) is proposed as a powerful means of exploiting the time-variant channel capacity fluctuations of wireless channels. It is studied in comparison to variable spreading factor (VSF)-based techniques. These adaptive-rate transmission methods are compared in the context of(More)

This paper investigates the practical issues related to the energy efficiency of a deployed wireless sensor network through the use of network simulations. The IEEE 802.11b standard is used as the communications technology and the dynamic source routing algorithm provides the mechanism for generating the communications routes from data sources to data(More)
A burst-by-burst adaptive speech transceiver is proposed, which can drop its source coding rate and speech quality under transceiver control in order to invoke a more error resilient modem mode amongst less favourable channel conditions. The novel, high-quality, Adaptive Multi-Rate (AMR) speech codec [5], operated at bit rates of 4.75 and 10.2 kbps and(More)
