Heterogeneous Networking: An Enabling Paradigm for Ubiquitous Wireless Communications
In this paper we explore the principle of heterogeneous wireless networking and discuss the potential avenues towards the realization of the ubiquitous wireless communications. Specifically, we demonstrate that the heterogeneous network architecture, constituted by the fusion of the classic cellular and the ad hoc network topologies, inherits the vital complementary characteristics of both architectures, and thus has the potential of attaining the levels of performance and efficiency required by the future wireless communications.

Abstract

In this paper we explore the principle of heterogeneous wireless networking and discuss the potential avenues towards the realization of the ubiquitous wireless communications. Specifically, we demonstrate that the heterogeneous network architecture, constituted by the fusion of the classic cellular and the ad hoc network topologies, inherits the vital complementary characteristics of both architectures, and thus has the potential of attaining the levels of performance and efficiency required by the future wireless communications.
