—In this paper, we introduce the concept of " route robustness " for path selection in multi-hop cognitive radio networks. We demonstrate that the aggregate throughput and the robustness of routes determined by the proposed route selection strategy are superior to existing rate-based selection strategies. The rationale behind our approach is to guarantee a(More)
—Beamforming is used in IEEE 802.15.3c networks to avoid high propagation attenuation and path loss and improve the overall system throughput by exploiting spatial channel reuse. In this paper, we introduce design challenges of scheduling in beamforming-enabled IEEE 802.15.3c networks. These challenges include positioning, axis alignment, and interference(More)
—In this paper, we study the determination of down-link (DL) and uplink (UL) channel split ratio for Time Division Duplex (TDD)-based IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) wireless networks. In a TDD system, uplink and downlink transmissions share the same frequency at different time intervals. The TDD framing in WiMAX is adaptive in the sense that the downlink to uplink(More)
