In a typical wireless system, communications between a transmitter-receiver pair is subject to impairments such as intracell and intercell interference, as well as multipath fading. For practical wireless data transmission systems, e.g., UMTS or GPRS, it has been demonstrated by simulation and supported by real measurements that these impairments can be adequately modeled by hidden Markov models (HMMs). It has also been demonstrated that various types of wireless data arrival process can be…

This work uses experimental traces that represent the frame error process in 802.11a and802.11b networks under different conditions to test the accuracy of the traditional Markov models of wireless channels and suggests an approach for the parameterization of a two-state Markov model.

Cross-layer resource scheduling for wireless systems over correlated fading channels

This work presents optimal and suboptimal packet scheduling over Rayleigh fading channels, and investigates the rate and power adaptation problem for two cases: when both the perfect channel state information and observation feedback are known, and when only latter is known.

An analytical framework for the class of ARQ mechanisms, referred to as Simultaneous MAC Packet Transmission (SMPT), is developed and provides a basis for resource management in wireless systems running some form of SMPT and optimizing S MPT mechanisms.



On channel modeling for delay analysis of packet communications over wireless links

Although a two state Markov channel model leads to throughput predictions of protocols such as ARQ that agree quite well with simulations over Rayleigh fading channels, such a model is found to be inadequate for predicting delay in an ARQ/queueing system that operates over a fading channel.

Error statistics in data transmission over fading channels

It is shown that a Markov approximation for the block error process is a good model for a broad range of parameters, and the relationship between the marginal error rate and the transition probability is largely insensitive to parameters such as block length, degree of forward error correction and modulation format.

Lateness probability of a retransmission scheme for error control on a two-state Markov channel

The results relate the achievable quality of service and the amount of traffic that can be served to the packet-error process parameters, which in turn are induced by the physical layer specifications, which can be useful in making admission control decisions and in assessing the effect of physical layer design on the performance of higher layer protocols.

Analytical results show that the dominant parameters affecting the system performance are the spectral overlay ratio and the distance between the microcell and macrocell base stations, which can be applied to CDMA multimedia network planning in heavily populated traffic areas.

Estimates of error rates for codes on burst-noise channels

Use of an approximate error rate as an estimate of performance allows the complex statistics of errors to be reduced to a manageable table of parameters and used in an economical evaluation of large collections of error detecting codes.
