Abstract

This chapter introduces the cross layer design for resource allocation over multimedia wireless networks. Conventional layered packet scheduling and call admission control schemes are presented and a number of cross-layered protocols that are recently proposed are investigated. The chapter highlights the QoS improvement and the performance gain obtained while considering the interlayer dependencies concept for various real-time and non-real-time applications. The authors hope that this chapter will assist in the understanding of the cross layering and its enhancement of the layered design for QoS provisioning in future multimedia wireless networks.
