—User-generated content (UGC) also known as user-created content (UCC) refers to various kinds of media contents that are produced by end users. A recent trend in the use of the Internet exhibits that data traffic from UGC is rapidly growing with the potential to create a huge amount of uplink traffic for wireless operators. As the reality of UGC's scope(More)
— Increasing demand for high data-rate multimedia services has led to the emergence of high-speed data transfer features such as High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) for WCDMA networks. The role of the MAC-hs scheduler is vital in HSDPA in improving overall system performance. Using Opportunistic scheduling to exploit multiuser diversity for efficient(More)
Digital watermarking is already used to establish the copyright of graphics, audio and text, and is now increasingly important for the protection of geometric data as well. Watermarking polygonal models in the spectral domain gives protection against similarity transformation, mesh smoothing, and additive random noise attacks. However, drawbacks exist in(More)
In multi access network environments, mobile stations may encounter multiple choices for selecting an access network. Carefully designed access selection schemes can provide not only mobile users with better services but also network operators with better resource utilizations. It is also envisioned that further improvements can be achieved by(More)
— CDMA 1x Ev-DO is an evolution of the CDMA2000 3G wireless standard to enable high rate packet data services up to 2.4Mbps in Rev 0, 3.1Mbps in Rev A, and 4.9Mbps in Rev B. To support such high data rates, CDMA 1x Ev-DO utilizes TDMA technology on the downlink allowing a single receiver per time slot. Accordingly, a scheduling algorithm is necessary to(More)
