Recent technologies have brought about a drastic increase in the quality and speed of wireless communication. Only two decades ago, push and talk systems were the dominating devices in this area; now, people are always connected to the global telephony system via either fixed or mobile GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) networks. This paper from Novatica describes a pure software based solution called WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) Tracker which is based on signal strength measurements from different Wireless Access Points (WAPs
Wireless communications networks these days are one of the fastest growing segments of the communications industry. The increasing need for mobility and high data rates are the two dominant trends in the evolution of wireless communications systems. This paper from Novatica provides an overview of the algorithms and techniques used in next generation Personal Communications Services networks. These techniques have been developed to address some inefficiency issues arising from classical standards like GSM (Global System for Mobile communications).
