This paper described the design of a control and management network for a mobile wireless ATM network. The orderwire system consists of a packet radio network which overlays the mobile wireless ATM network and receives GPS information. This information is used to control the beamforming antenna subsystem which provides for spatial reuse. This paper also proposed the design of the VNC algorithm which is a novel concept for predictive configuration. A mobile ATM PNNI based on VNC was also discussed. As a prelude to the system implementation, results of a Maisie simulation of the orderwire system were presented. Finally, the Network Control Protocol was tested, initial problems corrected, and initial performance results were obtained and presented in this paper.
