Link adaptation strategy for healthcare application on IEEE 802.15.4 WPANs

The signaling of the healthcare applications needs the error performance and the multiple data rate for different target rates of various bio-signals. In this paper, we propose a link adaptation strategy on the multi-rate modulation set for IEEE 802.15.4 wireless personal area networks (WPANs). The protocol stack made by the network simulator OPNET is used to verify […]

Energy efficient contention window adaptation algorithm for IEEE 802.11 WLAN

This paper introduces a new contention window (CW) adaptation algorithm to reduce the collision level in an IEEE802.11 based network with the main objective of maximizing energy efficiency while maintaining required Quality of Service (QoS) performance. The main concept of the proposed algorithm is to dynamically adjust the contention window size according to the network […]

Processor-Network Speed Scaling for Energy–Delay Tradeoff in Smartphone Applications

Many smartphone applications, e.g., file backup, are intrinsically delay-tolerant so that data processing and transfer can be delayed to reduce smartphone battery usage. In the literature, these energy–delay tradeoff issues have been addressed independently in the forms of Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) problems and network selection problems when smartphones have multiple wireless interfaces. In this paper, we […]

A home cloud-based home network auto-configuration using SDN

In recent years, the prevalence of network devices such as smartphones, smart appliances, and various sensors has increased. As a result, interest in and demand for home networks has steadily increased. So, auto-configuration problems in home networks are very important and must be addressed, because some household members will not be familiar with the Information Technology (IT) devices […]

A Dynamic Networking Substrate for Distributed MMOGs

This paper proposes a distributed and dynamic networking architecture for massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs). The MMOG networks deal with the challenge of update message exchange among a large number of players that are subject to both mobility (constant change of virtual location) and churn (joining and leaving the physical network at will). Ideally, a player’s update […]

APIs for QoS configuration in Software Defined Networks

The OpenFlow (OF) protocol is widely used in Software Defined Networking (SDN) to realize the communication between the controller and forwarding devices. OF allows great flexibility in managing traffic flows. However, OF alone is not enough to build more complex SDN services that require complete control and management of the data plane (e.g. configurations of ports, queues, etc.).The current […]

Extending OpenFlow for SDN-enabled synchronous Ethernet networks

There is an increasing need of synchronization and clock frequency distribution in core and accessnetworks. Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) is a technology that is able to distribute clock frequency over Ethernet networks, while keeping scalability and reduced costs. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is another emerging technology that is changing the landscape of network management by separating the control and […]

Friendship influence on mobile behavior of location based social network users

In mobile computing research area, it is highly desirable to understand the characteristics of user movement so that the user friendly location aware services could be rendered effectively. Location based social networks (LBSNs) have flourished recently and are of great potential for movement behavior exploration and data-driven application design. While there have been some efforts on user check-in movement […]

A Survey of Security Attacks in Information-Centric Networking

Information-centric networking (ICN) is a new communication paradigm that focuses on content retrieval from the network regardless of storage location or physical representation of this content. In ICN, securing the content itself is much more important than securing the infrastructure or the end-points. To achieve the security goals in this new paradigm, it is crucial to have a comprehensive […]

Human group sensing and networking: Scenario development and feasibility study

Vital signs obtained from people playing various types of sports can be exploited not only for diagnosing their physical conditions but also for learning the best practice to be followed to enhance their sporting abilities and skills. In this paper, focusing on a framework to collect vital data from a human group consisting of a […]
