Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The use of complementary radio access technologies within a network allows the advantages of each technology to be combined to overcome individual limitations. In this paper we show how 5~GHz and ``TV White Space'' overlay networks can be combined to provide fixed wireless access coverage within a rural environment. By creating a model of the whole network we derive the optimum assignment of stations between the two overlay networks to maximise the capacity of individual stations given a desired individual station data rate. Through simulation we show how the power consumption of a base station can be minimised by dynamically adjusting station assignments based on network data rate requirements changing over the course of a day.
