The C-Cube Concept - Combining Cross-Layer Protocol Design, Cognitive-, and Cooperative Network Concepts

  • Thomas Arildsen
  • Frank H. P. Fitzek

This chapter introduces the C-Cube concept combining cross-layer protocol design with cognitive and cooperative networking. As mobile devices are getting more flexible, it is envisioned that they should exploit their flexility and adapt to the current situation in the best possible manner. Adapting to a new situation could involve the selection of protocol parameters, protocol layers as such, and transmission technology with its related parameters.
