|Acronym: COST 290|
|Main Objective: The main objective of the Action is to increase the knowledge on future advanced Multiservice Wireless Networks (MWNs) MWNs and specifically on traffic nature and behaviour and its impact on network architecture, performance and planning. Special attention will be given to Quality of Service and related aspects in both access networks and core networks in the presence of mixed multimedia traffic. To accomplish this, new analytical tools, software implementations and prototypes will be developed and validated.
Action has been divided into four Working Groups (WGs).
Working Group 1: Traffic Engineering, Congestion Control and Parameters Estimation in Packet-Switched Mobile and Wireless Environment for 3G and beyond
Working Group 2: Specific issues and QoS for Future Packet-Switched Mobile and Wireless Networks
Working Group 3: Network Planning and Architectures
Working Group 4: New Services and QoS Mobile Pricing
