To meet the needs of wireless broadband access, the IEEE 802.16 protocol for wireless metropolitan networks (WirelessMAN) has been recently standardized. The medium access control (MAC) layer of the IEEE 802.16 has point-to-multipoint (PMP) mode and mesh mode. Previous works on the IEEE 802.16 have primarily focused on the PMP mode. In the mesh mode, all(More)
—One of the major challenges for the wireless network design is the efficient mobility management, which can be addressed globally (macromobility) and locally (micromobility). Mobile Internet protocol (IP) is a commonly accepted standard to address global mobility of mobile hosts (MHs). It requires the MHs to register with the home agents (HAs) whenever(More)
—For a Personal Communication System (PCS) network to effectively deliver services to the mobile users, it must have an efficient way to keep track of mobile users. Location management fulfills this task through location registration and call delivery procedures. To reduce the signaling traffic, many schemes such as local anchoring, pointer forwarding, and(More)
ÐFor a PCS network to effectively deliver services to its mobile users, it must have an efficient way to keep track of the mobile users. The location management fulfills this task through location registration and paging. To reduce the signaling traffic, many schemes such as Local Anchor (LA) scheme, per-user caching scheme and pointer forwarding scheme(More)
For a wireless network to effectively deliver services to the mobile users, it must have an efficient way to track them. The location management fulfills this task through location registration and paging. Many location management strategies , such as profile-based scheme (PBS), have been proposed to reduce the signaling traffic caused by the location(More)
—Mobility management plays an important role in wireless communication networks in effectively delivering services to users on the move. Many schemes have been proposed and investigated extensively in the past to improve performance. Profile-based scheme (PBS) is one of them, which uses the user routine information stored in the user profile to reduce(More)
— In this paper, an adaptive resource reuse scheduling (ARRS) algorithm is presented with the goal of enhancing the system capacity for relay networks, which supports arbitrary topology and relay stations (RSs) mobility. Since one key step in ARRS is modeled as graph multicoloring, a fast ∆+1 2-approximation algorithm named dual sorting greedy (DSG) is(More)
