Executive Summary

Future 3G and 4G mobile communication systems will be required to support wide range of data rates and quality of service matrix. For the efficient design of data link and transport protocols system designer needs knowledge of the statistical properties of physical layer. Studies have shown that without proper characterization of the channel, blind application of existing protocols and transmission policy may results in disastrous performance unless proper measures are not being taken. Channel characterization also helps in allocation of resources, selection of transmission policy and protocols.
