—The rapid development in Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication make it necessary to design communication systems operating in different wireless spectrum as an alternative to highly congested wireless access systems. In addition, the deployment of wireless smart meter devices is ramping up and it is expected that such devices(More)
—Recently, indoor positioning systems (IPSs) have been designed to provide location information of persons and devices. The position information enables location-based protocols for user applications. Personal networks (PNs) are designed to meet the users' needs and interconnect users' devices equipped with different communications technologies in various(More)
In order to satisfy the increasing demand of wireless broadband multimedia services, much attention has been paid to the 60 GHz band where as much as 5 GHz of spectrum has been reserved. However, in the indoor environment, the propagation of signals at this millimeter wave band is strongly hindered by walls, people and their movement, furniture, etc. As a(More)
This paper describes our ongoing work on a system that provides information about network resources and related communication facilities to applications running on a mobile device. It defines and elaborates on the concept of communication context and describes the architecture of this core low-level enabling system for ubiquitous and pervasive applications(More)
This paper addresses the issues of designing an infrastructure to support seamless in-building communication at the 60 GHz band. Recently, the 60 GHz band has received much attention due to its 5 GHz of available spectrum. However, the propagation of signals in this band is strongly hindered by attenuation and line-of-sight requirements. The situation gets(More)
often collocated, coexistence issues arise as these networks share the same 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) band. Consequently, their performance may degrade. We have proposed a coexistence model of IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.11b/g networks , which addresses their coexistence behavior and explains their coexistence performance. As an(More)
, We highly believe that 60 GHz wireless technology is an ideal candidate to be the future high-speed WLAN standard for home networks thanks to its unique characteristics. In this paper, we review and present the main aspects of the 60 GHz radio regarding future home networks. We introduce the fundamental challenges with the research issues and the(More)
license-free band with many other wireless technologies such as IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). Because of the low-power, however, IEEE 802.15.4 WSNs are potentially vulnerable to the interference introduced by the other wireless technologies such as IEEE 802.11b/g WLANs, which have much higher power. Particularly, in the presence of(More)
