    An adaptive call admission control scheme with load balancing for QoS enhancement in RoF based converged UMTS/WLAN

    As Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) have complementary characteristics, convergence of UMTS and WLAN offer seamless wireless access service to users. In a converged UMTS/WLAN enhancing Quality of Service (QoS) for different services require call admission control and load balancing. This paper analyses the...

    A Structured Differential Evolutions for Various Network Topologies

    A structured implementation of Differential Evolution (DE), which can be executed in parallel by using various networks topologies, is presented in this paper. Even though Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) including DE have a parallel and distributed nature intrinsically, Sequential DE (SqDE) is especially suited for the structured implementation of DE. Therefore,...

    A Multi-Agent Geo-Simulation Model for Intelligent Sensor Web Spatial Coverage Management Using IVGE

    A Sensor Web (SW) consists of a large collection of small nodes providing collaborative and distributed sensing abilities in unpredictable environments. Nodes composing such a SW are characterized by resource restrictions, especially energy, processing power, and communication capacities. A sensor web can be thought of as a spatially and functionally...

    Compatibility Analysis for Wireless Systems in VHF/UHF Bands with Geographic Information

    By using radio propagation predictions of Rec. ITU-R P.1546 combined with geographic information, formulations for field calculation and interference analysis are presented in the VHF and UHF bands. To illustrate some computational results for the given system parameters, virtual and real geographic data are taken into account. Performance and protection...

    Wireless Cellular Systems Performance Improvement Based on Neural Network

    In this paper, a Neural Network (NN) part has been imposed to overcome a previously mitigated drawback that is found in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex technology (OFDM) systems. In the learning process the authors make use of the results obtained from the previously published work to reduce the Peak to...
