Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Beyond 3G continues to dominate discussion within the cellular community. A variety of issues are being actively debated: the requirement for a new air interface, greater interworking with WLANs and other networks, a service-driven approach, and potential for increasing market penetration of network-enabled devices. The Mobile VCE vision for beyond 3G encompasses a world that has embraced a disparate range of networked processing and communications devices. This article presents an architecture for user-centric communication across heterogeneous access networks.
