Ephremides and Alumnus Ayyagari Awarded Patent for Power Control Networks Research


Professor Anthony Ephremides (ECE/ISR) and Institute for Systems Research (ISR) alum Deepak Ayyagari have been awarded U.S. Patent 6,947,407 for "Power Control Based Admission Methods for Maximum Throughput in DS-CSMA Networks with Multi-Media Traffic." This is a method for maximizing data throughput over a multi-code DS-CDMA network by controlling the number of codes assigned to each user while controlling each user's power budget so that the bit energy to noise ratio is met, along with the quality of service and frame error rate requirements.
