Introduction

Introduction


Goal of wireless networks and mobile computing

Goal of Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing

“People and their machines should be able toaccess information and communicate with each othereasily and securely, in any medium or combination ofmedia – voice, data, image, video, or multimedia – anytime, anywhere, in a timely, cost-effective way.”

Dr. G. H. Heilmeier, Oct 1992


Wireless networks and mobile computing

Wireless Networks and Mobile Computing

  • Two aspects of mobility:

    • user mobility: users communicate (wireless) “anytime, anywhere, with anyone”

    • device portability: devices can be connected anytime, anywhere to the network

  • Wireless vs. mobile Examples stationary computer notebook in a hotel  wireless LANs in historic buildings  Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)

  • The demand for mobile communication creates the need for integration of wireless networks into existing fixed networks:

    • local area networks: standardization of IEEE 802.11

    • Internet: Mobile IP extension of the internet protocol IP

    • wide area networks: e.g., internetworking of GSM and ISDN, VoIP over WLAN and POTS


Enabling technologies

Enabling Technologies

  • Development and deployment of wireless/mobile technology and infrastructure

    • in-room, in-building, on-campus, in-the-field, MAN, WAN

  • Miniaturization of computing machinery

    . . . -> PCs -> laptop -> PDAs/smart phones -> embeddedcomputers/sensors

  • Improving device capabilities/software development environments, e.g.,

    • andriod: http://code.google.com/android/

    • iphone: http://developer.apple.com/iphone/

    • windows mobile


Mobile devices

Mobile devices

  • Laptop/Notebook

  • fully functional

  • standard applications

  • Pager

  • receive only

  • tiny displays

  • simple text messages

  • PDA

  • graphical displays

  • character recognition
