Recent years have witnessed an ever-increasing interest in smart antenna technologies to boost the capacity of existing and future wireless systems. As one of the first standards the wireless metropolitan area network IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) provides means to support these techniques. This paper investigates the potential of smart antenna beamforming and space(More)
This paper presents a new approach for system integration of future wireless networks based on the evaluation of foreign party based measurements to support (vertical) handover. For the new proposal, referred to as Hybrid Information System (HIS), it is suggested to collect information about the current state within the covered cell to provide this(More)
This paper presents a framework for building reconfigurable protocol stacks. A high degree of re-configurability is achieved through composing complex behavior of a communication system using Functional Units, forming Functional Unit Networks. The feasibility of Functional Unit Networks and its application to next generation radio networks will be(More)
This paper enquires an approach of location aided handover for next generation system integration. For the future only the combination of heterogeneous networks can fulfill the expectations of customers in the sense of ubiquity and bandwidth. Therefore, sophisticated handover and interworking strategies are necessary. In our approach a new entity, called(More)
