LAPRA: Location-aware Proactive Resource Allocation

Today's indoor wireless networks employ reactive resource allocation methods to provide fair and efficient usage of the communication system. However, their reactive nature limits the quality of service (QoS) that can be offered to the user locations within the environment. In large crowded places (airports, conferences), networks can get congested and users may suffer from poor QoS. To mitigate this, we open a new dimension: the user's location. We propose a resource allocation method in which the users are proactive and seek good channel quality by moving to locations where the signal quality is good. So, the users and their locations are optimized to improve the overall QoS. We demonstrate that the proposed proactive approach enhances user QoS and improves network throughput of the system.View Original Article
