Title: Power control of remote communication devices

Abstract: A first communication device is in communication with a second communication device. The communication may be characterized by a first and a second characteristic that are affected by a transmit power of the first communication device, each characteristic having an upper and a lower bound. The transmit power of the first communication device is delayed from being adjusted to bring the communication within the upper and lower bounds of the first criteria and outside the upper and lower bounds of the second criteria when a contrary adjustment of the transmit power of the first communication device was performed until a predetermined amount of time has expired since the contrary adjustment. Thus, unnecessarily repetitive power adjustments are avoided.
