Simulering av radioresurshantering för UMTS (Swedish)
A current trend in the information society is that traditionally fixed computing resources are made available to mobile users. Most of the existing techniques for communication have been developed for stationary computing, and they must be adapted to the different connection properties of the mobile environment. One of the emerging mobile computing environments is the Universal Mobile Telecommunication System, UMTS. This system places demands on the quality of service that is provided to data flows, which requires resource management in the connection network. The most scarce resources in this system is the radio resources. The easiest way to conduct research in new and adapted techniques for communication is to perform simulations. Management of resources places restrictions on connections, and to get reliable results during simulations it must be included in the simulated environment. The thesis discusses and builds a basis for development of UMTS radio resource management in the network simulator ns-2. A limited version of UMTS radio resource management is added to ns-2 and evaluated.
