The process of nding a unit in a mobile communications system is called paging and requires the use of limited network resources. Although it is understood how to minimize the use of network resources and satisfy delay constraints when paging a single unit, optimal policies for paging multiple units are diicult to derive. Here we adapt single unit polling methods to obtain simple ensemble polling schemes for use with multiple units which can greatly increase the rate at which page requests can… CONTINUE READING
