Abstract [en]

Ambient Networks is a new networking concept that targets forthcoming dynamic communication environments; characterized by presence of a multitude of different wireless devices, radio access technologies and network operators that can form instant inter-network agreements with each other. In order to facilitate such dynamically composed networks a Multi-radio Access (MRA) architecture has been devised consisting of Multi-Radio Resource Management (MRRM) and Generic Link Layer (GLL) functionality. One of the key objectives of the MRA architecture is the efficient utilization of the multi-radio resources by means of effective radio access selection mechanisms. In this paper the functions of MRRM and GLL and their role in multi-radio access selection are explained. In addition, the results from a series of evaluation studies are presented emphasizing the scenarios where MRA approach shows significant gains in the overall system performance. This work has been performed as part of the Ambient Networks project, an integrated project within the EU IST 6th Framework Programme.
