Wireless networks and mobile computing Using a computing device while in transit. Mobile computing implies wireless transmission, but wireless transmission does not necessarily imply mobile computing. Fixed wireless applications use satellites, radio systems and lasers to transmit between permanent objects such as buildings  


Changes in technologies have been spurred by commercial success in the mobile communications market, the result being lower-priced, higher-quality products. This collection of 15 research and review articles covers performance modeling tools and techniques, wireless local area networks (LANs), ad hoc For this purpose. Meaning "to this" in Latin, it refers to dealing with special situations as they occur rather than functions that are repeated on a regular basis. See ad hoc query and ad hoc mode.  and sensor networks and cellular or hybrid networks. Topics include performance analysis tools and techniques, large deviation principles of modeling and analysis, quality of service for wireless LANs, product modeling and analysis, capacity and delay analysis, message broadcasting in wireless vehicular ad hoc networks See mobile ad hoc network. , enhancing security, network coverage and routing schemes for wireless sensor networks (including continuous data collection), design fundamentals and interference mitigation for cellular networks, design of admission control policies, resource allocation resource allocation Managed care The constellation of activities and decisions which form the basis for prioritizing health care needs  for cellular wireless LAN interworking (standard) interworking - Systems or components, possibly from different origins, working together to perform some task. Interworking depends crucially on standards to define the interfaces between the components.  and auto-configuration and Internet connectivity in hybrid ad hoc networks.
