A piloting plane for controlling wireless devices

The development of the IEEE wireless technologies is promising the ultimate Internet service deployment on wireless and mobile infrastructures since they would offer larger bandwidth at cheaper price. However, it is disquieting to see that the different control algorithms supposed to be the heart of the wireless deployment are not evolving as fast as the wireless technologies do. Here we come up with the hard question: how to pilot these control algorithms? This paper is proposing a revolutionary tyre where all control algorithms are fed in a concerted manner by a self-steering system. In network terms, this paper is proposing a definitely new technology that will permit to optimize, secure, manage and control the wireless devices using an automatic pilot system.
