Advances in the technologies of networking, wireless communications, and miniaturization of computers have lead to rapid development in mobile communication infrastructure and have engendered a new paradigm of computing. Users carrying portable devices can now move freely about while remaining connected to the network. This "portability" allows for access to information from anywhere and at any time. The flexibility has resulted in new levels of complexity not encountered previously in software and protocol design for wired networking.
New challenges in designing software systems for mobile networks include location and mobility management, channel allocation, power conservation, and more. In this book, renowned researchers in the field address these aspects of mobile networking.
