Bandwidth Management And Quality Of Service, Adalbert Engel Jan 2000

Bandwidth Management And Quality Of Service, Adalbert Engel

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

With the advent of bandwidth-hungry video and audio applications, demand for bandwidth is expected to exceed supply. Users will require more bandwidth and, as always, there are likely to be more users. As the Internet user base becomes more diverse, there is an increasing perception that Internet Service Providers (ISPs) should be able to differentiate between users, so that the specific needs of different types of users can be met. Differentiated services is seen as a possible solution to the bandwidth problem. Currently, however, the technology used on the Internet differentiates neither between users, nor between applications. The thesis focuses ...


Simulator For The Performance Analysis Of Cpm Schemes In An Indoor Wireless Environment, Ronald Chua Jan 1996

Simulator For The Performance Analysis Of Cpm Schemes In An Indoor Wireless Environment, Ronald Chua

Theses : Honours

A software simulator for characterising Continuous Phase Modulation (CPM) schemes in an indoor multipath environment has been developed using SIMULINK and MATLAB. The simulator is capable of simulating a wide range of CPM schemes to determine bandwidth efficiency and robustness to additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and Rician fading. Initial trials of the simulator indicate that the simulator is functioning correctly. Eventually, the simulator will be used to determine the most suitable modulation scheme for the development of an actual indoor wireless system.


Analysis Of Background Noise For Wireless Microwave Lan Channels, Jason C. Hislop Jan 1996

Analysis Of Background Noise For Wireless Microwave Lan Channels, Jason C. Hislop

Theses : Honours

Perusal of the details within, should provide the reader with an insight into general wireless indoor communications within the microwave spectrum, with respect to the problems laced, specific to noise corruption of the transmitted signal. Indoor communication systems are difficult to model, due to the largely random nature of the relevant environment, and the compounding factors that degrade system performance. These factors are many and varied, in accordance with the operational topologies of possible application area. However, there exists a common and increasing need to effectively model the communication links in question. Part of this strategy involves having an understanding ...


The Mobile Telephone: The Transportation Of Social Relationships, Kenneth C. Staples Jan 1996

The Mobile Telephone: The Transportation Of Social Relationships, Kenneth C. Staples

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

In the studies of contemporary electronic media artifacts and their effects on society, television, satellites, and computers have been extensively investigated and their various impacts well documented. With regards to telecommunication technologies, academic scholarship is somewhat less, with most comment being restricted to either historic evolution, or technical description. Exceptions to this are, Marvin's reference to the telephone in her publication, When Old Technologies Were New: Thinking About Electronic Communication in the Late Nineteenth Century (1988}, and Umble's The Amish and the telephone: resistance and reconstruction (1992). Both of these publications are used for supporting arguments in my ...
