Heterogeneous wireless networks for reliable communications
ABSTRACT This paper introduces the latest status of our undergoing project aiming at reliable communications by heterogeneous wireless networks. This project is one of the new Research and Development (R & D) projects in Japan to attain the efficient use of the precious and scarce radio spectrum resources. A test-bed facility has been developed and their features, specifications and some experimental results are also described. Our project focuses on cooperative heterogeneous wireless networks to improve the reliability of the radio communication links while ensuring efficient use of radio spectrum resources.
