Next: General Requirements
- Remote Node
- The Remote Node (RN) is a wireless mobile host.
- Edge Node
- The Edge Node (EN) is shown as the dashed box in
It is defined as a the smallest unit which performs switching and
contains all adjacent wireless links.
- Edge Switch
- The Edge Switch (ES) is shown in Figure 3.
It resides at
the edge of the wired and wireless networks and has the
capability of switching among adjacent RNs. When used at the edges of
an EN-EN link, it requires a directly connected ATM switch. This is
because the higher speed EN-EN links will require faster
