In this paper we describe the current state of the DARPA packet radio network. Fully automated algorithms and protocols to organize, control, maintain, and move traffic through the packet radio network have been designed, implemented, and tested. By means of protocols, networks of about 50 packet radios with some degree of nodal mobility can be organized(More)
Paging success rate is one of the important performance metrics used by wireless service providers. It measures the page response acceptance rate when the MSC/VLR believes that the mobile is in the coverage area and pages the mobile to find the terminating mobile party to complete the incoming call. Obviously, the page message has to reach the mobile, and(More)
MANETs are wireless temporary adhoc networks that are being setup with no prior infrastructure and with no centralized administrator node. MANETs have dynamic (no fixed) topology due to arbitrary (random) movement of nodes. These can be created on the fly for a single session or a temporary assignment. Routing of data packets in MANETs is a fundamental(More)
Fast call setup has recently been one of the key areas of interest for wireless services. Due to the mobility of the user, the network needs to determine the exact location of the mobile prior to establishing a mobile-terminated call. Traditionally, a network uses paging to determine the exact location of the mobile, and this takes anywhere between 500 ms(More)
16 We are in the process designing an improved version of DRMA, which is more suitable to the ATN environment and can exploit new technology, such as GPS. Also under way is the investigation of handoo techniques. Here again, the DRMA TDM frame structure ooers new options for cell separation (via time division tasselation) and soft handoo.
