A Control and Management Network for Wireless ATM Systems

Stephen F. Bush, Sunil Jagannath, Joseph B. Evans and Victor S. Frost


This work provides the results of the on-going design and implementation of a control and management network (an orderwire) for a mobile wireless ATM system. There are novel uses for an orderwire which receives time and position from the Global Positioning System (GPS). Position information is used for such things as beam steering and determination of switch to host associations. The accurate time provided by the GPS is used by the network configuration system for a proposed rapid configuration algorithm.
