Convergence of Broadband, Broadcast, and Cellular Network Technologies

Book Description

In the ever-evolving telecommunication industry, technological improvements alone are not able to keep up with the significant growth of mobile broadband traffic. As such, new research on communications networks is necessary to keep up with rising demand. Convergence of Broadband, Broadcast, and Cellular Network Technologies addresses the problems of broadband, broadcast, and cellular coexistence, including the increasing number of advanced mobile users and their bandwidth demands. This book will serve as a link between academia and industry, serving students, researchers, and industry professionals.
