The authors address new techniques and approaches to deal with the growth of data traffic in wireless mobile networks and the important need to guarantee differentiated quality of service levels to different traffic classes. The material presents the latest research achievements and rseults in research areas such as traffic engineering, mobility and interoperability, network architectures and planning as well as services, regulations, and economic aspects. This book covers broad areas of research onw ireless communications and networking from the physical layer through the application layer. It is recommended for resarchers and PhD students to receive a comprehensive and up-to-date overview on enigineering approaches, opimization methods and open issues in wireless multimedia networks.
