The value of the backward link is deteriorated versus that of the forward link. However, even for three-person scenario, the backward link still showed greater received power and PAR than the required value.
To support QoS in this model for a variety of traffic types and various link bandwidths with ACM, The forward link for satellite networks should support fairness among RCSTs, and it also has to provide the QoS based on DiffServ according to the traffic characteristics in a wired LAN area.
It can be seen from Table 2 that the computational complexity of MMSE-AFSA increases slightly compared with MMSE and is much lower than that of OMD, because, in a Thuser TDRS system forward link, the number of iterations of OMD is [2.sup.K] for OMD is known to be NP-hard.
The reverse and forward link simulation models were recently developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in collaboration with Cadence Design (3) using a simulation tool called the SPW (Signal Processing Worksystem).
The MSM5100 chipset is also capable of supporting up to 307 kilobits per second (kbps) in the forward link. Combining the high packet data capability with a rich set of applications -- including gpsOne position location support, Qtunes Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG-1) Layer-3 (MP3) player software, Compact Media Extension (CMX) Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI)-based multimedia software and Java -- the MSM5100 solution will drive the rollout of many new and differentiated devices to support the rapid growth of exciting new 3G services from operators worldwide.
In a convincing email, the scammers ask the customer to proceed to a forward link to update their payment details.
Particularly, the logical [N.sub.1] [right arrow] R [right arrow] [N.sub.2] transmission is termed the forward link and [N.sub.1] [left arrow] R [left arrow] [N.sub.2] transmission the reverse link, respectively.
In passive UHF RFID systems, a bidirectional radio link is established between reader and tags, including a forward link from the reader to tags and a backward link from the tags to reader.
TeamCast's MFL-1000 and MFL-2000 are two new products that have been developed in its ModulCast family of modulators that will meet the requirements of the Forward Link Only (FLO) air interface standard as specified by the FLO Forum and standardised by the Telecommunications Industry Association.
QUALCOMM's mobile receive diversity solutions use an additional antenna and associated receive chain to deliver higher data throughput and significant increases in network capacity, enhance network performance on the forward link and reduce the incidence of dropped calls.
