Abstract

In a composite radio environment, different wireless access technologies can be co-operating components of a combined heterogeneous infrastructure. The exploitation of a wireless system, operating in a composite radio context, requires upgraded service and network management capabilities. This paper presents an integrated management system and gives evidence of its capability of optimising service delivery and traffic distribution in a prototype composite radio environment comprised of three different wireless network technologies, i.e., GPRS, 802.11b WLAN, and DVB-T.
