Future Wireless Networks (FWNs) are expected to be a convergence of different kinds of wireless technologies, such as cellular technologies, Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), wireless metropolitan area networks, wireless sensor networks, and traditional wired networks. Although users and/or customers will be oblivious to the specific underlying network being used by their applications, the networks should be able to provide the resource (bandwidth) with guaranteed Quality of Service (QoS). The users should be able to move seamlessly among different networking technologies, e.g., among Ethernet, WLANs, WiMAX, and 2G/3G/4G, with stringent QoS requirements.
