In this paper, we have provided a model to minimize the unnecessary handovers from a cellular network to a WLAN. Exploiting traveling distance prediction method, the proposed handover necessity estimation mechanism uses distance threshold parameters to avoid unnecessary handovers. Our analysis and simulation results suggest that the proposed mechanism can(More)
Smart antennas possess the capability of suppressing jamming signal, so they can improve signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR). Array processing utilizes information regarding locations of signal to aid in interference suppression and signal enhancement and is considered promising technology for anti-jamming. In this paper we studied three(More)
Secure access of communication networks has become an increasingly important area of consideration for the communication service providers of present day. Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) networks are proving to be an efficient and cost-effective solution for the provisioning of high rate wireless traffic links in static and mobile domains. The secure access(More)
This paper reports on an effective mutual coupling suppression technique in which a metamaterial superstrate is placed in between the elements of densely packed microstrip phased array. Modified complementary split ring resonators are printed on the decoupling superstrate slab which caters for both surface and space wave effects. A detailed analysis of this(More)
With an increased emphasis on transportation safety requirements, Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) have emerged as the key underlying technology in the realization of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The IEEE-1609 set of standards for Wireless Access for Vehicular Environment (WAVE) specifies an architecture that includes new standards for(More)
