In this title, the authors leap into a novel paradigm of scalability and cost-effectiveness, on the basis of resource reuse. In a world with much abundance of wirelessly accessible devices, WSN deployments should capitalize on the resources already available in the region of deployment, and only augment it with the components required to meet new application requirements. However, if the required resources already exist in that region, WSN deployment converges to an assignment and scheduling scheme to accommodate for the new application given the existing resources. Such resources are polled from many fields, including multiple WSNs already in the field, static networks in addition to municipal, industrial and mobile resources. The architecture, framework and pricing policy, as well as approaches for backward compatibility with existing deployments, are presented in this book. We elaborate on the formalization of the problem, and contrast with existing work on coverage. This paradigm adopts optimal assignments in WSNs and exploits dynamic re-programming for boosting post-deployment and backward compatible protocols.
Four wireless network paradigms can be categorized as wireless multi-hop networks. These paradigms are the Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs), Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs), and Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANETs). In these four network paradigms, routing plays a vital and critical role and is considered one of the most important design elements. Being categorized as wireless multi-hop networks, the four aforementioned network paradigms share some commonalities in terms of their routing functions. However, as each of these network paradigms has its own unique characteristics and environment/application needs, each has some distinct aspects that distinguish its routing approaches from others. The focus of this brief is to identify the unification's and distinctions of routing functions in the four multi-hop networks. In addition, the brief introduces a generic routing model that can be used as a foundation of wireless multi-hop routing protocol analysis and design. It demonstrates that such model can be adopted by any wireless multi-hop routing protocol. Also presented is a glimpse of the ideal wireless multi-hop routing protocol along with several open issues.
There exists a strong demand for fully extending emerging Internet services, including collaborative applications and social networking, to the mobile and wireless domain. Delivering such services can be possible only through realizing broadband in the wireless. Two candidate technologies are currently competing in fulfilling the requirements for wireless broadband networks, WiMAX and LTE. At the moment, LTE and its future evolution LTE-Advanced are already gaining ground in terms of vendor and operator support. Whilst both technologies share certain attributes, they differ in others. Beyond technological merits, factors such as deployment readiness, ecosystem maturity and migration feasibility come to light when comparing the aptitude of the two technologies.
