Combined Source and Channel Coding for Wireless ATM LANs


It is widely recognized that a viable method to provide “anytime, anywhere” communication needs is by means of wireless technologies. In the indoor wireless environment, the 1-2 Mb/s wireless link technology that is currently available from several vendors (for example, WaveLan) will soon be replaced by higher capacities in the near future. For example, several manufacturers plan to develop radios based on the HiperLan standard that is currently being discussed in ETSI. These radios are intended to support 20 Mb/s wireless links for computer networking. As a result of this increase in physical link capacity, it is now feasible to envision wireless networks that provide similar functionality to current wired Ethernet LANs with the added advantage that the end terminals can be mobile. This in turn makes it feasible for multimedia services, in particular the delivery of video, to be provided over these wireless networks.
