Abstract

Personal communication networks (PCNs) based on IEEE 802.6 metropolitan area networks (MANs) offer an efficient architecture for distributed management of call and handoff processing functions in support of wireless personal communication services (PCSs). We present a novel reservation arbitrated (RA) access transport method to integrate multimedia and data PCSs over the MAN-based PCNs and discuss how different PCSs can be supported efficiently under the enhanced PCN architecture. We also present analysis and numerical results to demonstrate the significant improvements in system capacity due to the efficiency of the RA transport method.
