In this work, we give an overview of the main challenges that must be tackled to perform a joint design of the backhaul and radio access network in a cloud-based mobile network. The deployment of a very dense network based on small cells connected through a heterogeneous backhaul is a realistic way of achieving a high throughput in a mobile network. But,(More)
The 802.11e standard enables user configuration of several MAC parameters, making WLANs vulnerable to users that selfishly configure these parameters to gain throughput. In this paper, we propose a novel distributed algorithm to thwart such selfish behavior. The key idea of the algorithm is for stations to react, upon detecting a misbehavior, by using a(More)
