T7: Heterogeneous Wireless IP Networks Architectures and Requirements
Instructor: Abbas Jamalipour, University of Sydney, Australia
Access to broadband Internet services on a mobile platform has introduced tremendous research and development in the area of wireless IP in the past few years. Existing and emerging wireless technologies for wide area networks and hot spots, including third generation wireless cellular systems such as UMTS and cdma2000, wireless LAN defined in IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) and HIPERLAN standards, as well as wireless MAN proposals such as IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) and HIPERMAN, have provided substantial elements for realization of the broadband mobile Internet. Such a system should not only provide the commonly known Internet services, but also traditional voice and other real-time applications and eventually more advanced broadband multimedia services. This will require more research on architectures and protocols that interconnect those heterogeneous networks efficiently and in a seamless form. In this tutorial, the state-of-the art technologies for the wireless IP will be explored. The change in protocol design required for a complete migration from traditional wired network into a heterogeneous wired/wireless will be explained and the architectural concepts to support a broadband wireless IP in heterogeneous networks will be discussed. The tutorial will also examine third generation wireless networks in detail and show that how 3G and beyond networks could support the wireless IP. Standardization activities will be included in the tutorial too.
Abbas Jamalipour has been with the School of Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of Sydney, Australia, since 1998, where he is responsible for teaching and research in wireless data communication networks, wireless IP networks, network security and satellite systems. He holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Nagoya University, Japan. He is the author for the first technical book on networking aspects of wireless IP, The Wireless Mobile Internet Architectures, Protocols and Services, John Wiley & Sons 2003. In addition, he has authored another book on satellite communication networks with Artech House in 1998, and coauthored two other technical books on wireless telecommunications. He has authored over 130 papers in major journals and international conferences, and given short courses and tutorials in major international conferences. He has served on several major conferences technical program committees, and organized and chaired many technical sessions and panels at international conferences including several symposiums at IEEE GLOBECOM, ICC, WCNC, and VTC conferences. He is currently the Chair of the Satellite and Space Communications Technical Committee, the Vice Chair of the Asia Pacific Board, Technical Affairs Committee, and the Secretary to the Communication Switching and Routing Technical Committee, IEEE Communications Society. He has organized several special issues on the topic of 3G and beyond wireless cellular systems as well as broadband wireless networks in IEEE magazines and journals. He is a technical editor to the IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine, IEEE Communications Magazine, and the Wiley International Journal of Communication Systems. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
Professor Jamalipour is the Technical Program Chair for the 2004 International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems - SPECTS2004, a Technical Program Vice-Chair for IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference - WCNC2004 and WCNC2005, Co-Chair of Symposium on Next Generation Networks, IEEE International Conference on Communications - ICC2005, and Technical Program Vice-Chair IEEE High Performance Switching and Routing Workshop - HPSR 2005. Dr. Jamalipour is the Chair of the Wireless Communications Symposium, IEEE GLOBECOM2005, to be held in St. Louis, Missouri.
