Globalization of Mobile and Wireless Communicationsis a collection of cutting-edge research in mobile and wireless communications with impact on developments as far forward as 2020 and beyond. The book draws upon the insights and performed research work of leading experts in the field. Topics of discussion are related but not limited to spectrum-efficient radio interface technologies, enabling technologies for reconfigurability, wireless sensor networks, cognitive networks, coherent wireless transmission, algorithmic design, middleware for novel services and applications. The material has been edited to provide a vision for the future of mobile and wireless, towards a dynamic communication system that breaks down the barriers between communications means; and evolves and integrates business models and culture to match the technological evolution. In addition, strategies on how to overcome the technological challenges for achieving that vision are also outlined.

Ramjee Prasad is currently the Director of Center for Teleinfrastruktur (CTIF), and holds the chair of wireless information and multimedia communications. He is coordinator of European Commission Sixth Framework Integrated Project MAGNET Beyond (My personal Adaptive Global NET Beyond). He was involved in the European ACTS project FRAME...
