Description

Multimedia service provisioning is believed to be one of the prerequisites to guarantee the success of next-generation wireless networks. Examining the role of multimedia in state-of-the-art wireless systems and networks, Broadband Mobile Multimedia: Techniques and Applications presents a collection of introductory concepts, fundamental techniques, the latest advances, and open issues in this important area.

Divided into four sections, the volume begins with an introduction to various broadband wireless multimedia systems. Using video as an application example, it then focuses on the routing and cross-layer design issue of multimedia communication over multihop wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. The next section discusses issues related to multimedia communications over WLANs—a dominant part of today’s broadband wireless access networks. The book concludes with recent developments in quality-of-service (QoS) provisioning mechanisms and other enabling technologies, including middleware, mobility management, scheduling, and power control.

With numerous illustrative figures and extensive references, this useful technical guide gives in-depth treatments of basic topics, a solid overview of cutting-edge advances, and a representative sampling of important research outcomes.
