This article provides a detailed discussion of wireless resource and channel allocation schemes. The authors provide a survey of a large number of published papers in the area of fixed, dynamic, and hybrid allocation schemes and compare their trade-offs in terms of complexity and performance. We also investigate these channel allocation schemes based on(More)

A few years ago it was recognized that the vision of a truly low-cost, low-power radio-based cable replacement was feasible. Such a ubiquitous link would provide the basis for portable devices to communicate together in an ad hoc fashion by creating <i>personal area networks</i> which have similar advantages to their office environment counterpart - the(More)
This paper introduces PARO, a power-aware routing optimization that helps to minimize the transmission power needed to forward packets between wireless devices in ad hoc networks. Using PARO, one or more intermediate nodes called " redirectors " elects to forward packets on behalf of source-destination pairs thus reducing the aggregate transmission power(More)
This paper introduces PARO, a dynamic power controlled routing scheme that helps to minimize the transmission power needed to forward packets between wireless devices in ad hoc networks. Using PARO, one or more intermediate nodes called " redirectors " elects to forward packets on behalf of source–destination pairs thus reducing the aggregate transmission(More)
Design and implementation of broadband networks is one of the major focal areas in modern telecommunications. With recent developments in the field of wireless, hand-held terminals, as well as in personal communications services (PCS) [1-6], integration of mobile, wireless connections in a backbone broadband network is an essential and challenging task(More)
The wireless medium is a scarce shared resource in mobile computing. Consequently, the media access control (MAC) layer in-uences the fairness and robustness of the wireless network. According to the current MAC protocols, stations are not able to gain access equally to the shared wireless medium. This problem is commonlyknown as the fairness problem. The(More)
