Design and Performance of Heterogeneous Networks

2011/12-2013/14 • $195,702 • PI,CO
Current mobile wireless technology is based on homogeneous cellular networks. In such networks, base stations follow a carefully planned layout and are largely identical. While cell splitting can be used to accommodate growing traffic demands, this can be extremely problematic in dense urban...

Theory and practice of opportunistic spectrum sharing

2010/11 • $141,300 • PI,CO
Today's perceived scarcity of quality spectrum for next generation wireless applications is due in part to the large number of legacy applications currently enjoying exclusive access to what is often among the best quality spectrum. This is compounded by the fact that these legacy incumbent...
