Abstract

The addressed problem is related to bridging and routing between LAN-like broadband wireless net- works (W-Network 1) and personal public communi- cations networks (W-Network 2). W-Network 1 is assumed to serve delimited areas with a concentration of users producing on average low-medium traffic amount with high peaks. On the contrary W-Network 2 is assumed to serve many different environments and support on average low-medium traffic amount with low-concentrated users. The aim is to optimize the quality of data exchange between couples of us- ers, each belonging to a different network, also in the perspective of different network operators (Fig. 1).

The  addressed  problem  is  related to bridging androuting  between  LAN-like  broadband  wireless  net-works (W-Network 1) and personal public communi-cations  networks  (W-Network  2).  W-Network  1  isassumed to serve delimited areas with a concentrationof users  producing  on  average  low-medium  trafficamount with high peaks. On the contrary W-Network2 is assumed to serve many different environmentsand support on average low-medium traffic amountwith low-concentrated users. The aim is to optimizethe quality of data exchange between couples of us-ers, each belonging to a different network, also in theperspective of different network operators (Fig. 1).

A  typical  solution  is  depicted  in  Fig.  1.  The datacoming from a wireless user of W-Network 2 goesthrough Operator 2  Backbone  Network,  comes  toOperator 1 Backbone Network, either through a dedi-cated gateway or through normal Inter-network, andfinally to the destination wireless user of W-Network1. The difficulty of this solution lies in gateway plan-ning on fixed network and/or in using the Internet forcommunication between backbones. In any case thecommunication has to go through two backbones.

In W-Network 2 data are gathered by wireless usersthrough Central Controllers, serving a limited space(...
