  • The elusive QoS: what is missing?

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):1 pp. - xv
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    Summary form only given. Today, the increasing popularity of mobile phones and VoIP is generating a large impact on the revenue of traditional telecom service providers (SPs). To maintain their subscriber base and average revenue per user (ARPU), SPs are eager to offer premium services such as IP TV, online gaming, etc. These services create a large demand for QoS in IP networks. However, after so... View full abstract»

  • QoS and radio resource management in 3G and beyond systems

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):1 pp. - xvi
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (104 KB)

    The provision of heterogeneous network topologies is conceptually a very attractive notion; however, it is certainly a challenge to the network designer. In particular, the available radio resources of coupled access networks will have to be managed jointly, up to the degree allowed by the coupling mechanism. Targeted is an optimum solution in terms of throughput, cost per packet, development and ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (105 KB)

    Wireless multi-hop networks have generated a lot of interest in the recent past due to their many potential applications. Examples of such networks are sensor, ad hoc, and mesh networks. These networks bring a lot of new challenges; some are linked to the wireless physical layer, some to the end-devices, and some to the multi-hop characteristic. A wireless channel is usually characterized by its b... View full abstract»

  • Alternative schemes for proactive IP recovery

    Recovery at the IP layer has originally been handled by the slow process of IP reconvergence. As the dependence on the Internet broadens and real time applications like VoIP become a common service of the Internet, fast proactive recovery becomes an important property of the communication protocols. There are currently two IETF initiatives for proactive recovery drawing considerable attention, IP ... View full abstract»

  • A distributed algorithm for inter-domain resources provisioning

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):8 pp. - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (173 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The introduction of QoS guarantees from peer to peer in the Internet requires a mechanism for finding paths in the inter-domain network. This mechanism has to be distributed, support classical constraints (delay, bandwidth, jitter, loss rate, administrative cost) and be able to find multi-constraint paths. The second problem is hard even if global information concerning the resources available in ... View full abstract»

  • Distributed multi-path and multi-objective routing for network operation and dimensioning

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):8 pp. - 24
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (417 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we propose a multi-objective and multi-path routing mechanism called distributed multi-criteria load balancing (DMLB) algorithm. Such an algorithm can be used either to improve the network robustness in case of traffic increase or to allocate less link resources for a given quality of service. Traffic flows of an overloaded link are distributed on a set of alternative paths that is ... View full abstract»

  • Dependability modelling and analysis of networks as taking routing and traffic into account

    The existing work on dependability modelling and analysis of networks have main focuses on the, structural properties. However, the communication networks also have dynamic characteristics and behavioral properties, such as changes of topology, routes, and traffic loads, which should necessarily be reflected in the modelling. We regard the dependability modelling and analysis of IP networks with a... View full abstract»

  • Buffer sizing for elastic traffic

    Two areas of active research are likely to have a major impact on the future performance of the Internet. These are firstly, the evaluation of the buffer size required to ensure fair, stable and efficient sharing of link bandwidth and secondly, the proposition of new congestion control algorithms, more suitable for increasingly high link speeds than the current version of TCP. In this paper, we re... View full abstract»

  • Performance analysis of admission control for integrated services with minimum rate guarantees

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):7 pp. - 47
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (231 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we focus on an admission control strategy for streaming and elastic users that enforces a minimum rate guarantee for each elastic user through pre-emptive capacity reservation. We propose approximations to estimate the performance of this strategy. We apply time-scale decomposition for the limiting regimes, and for non-limiting regimes we propose a novel weighted approximation. Simu... View full abstract»

  • On fair and efficient bandwidth allocation by the multiple target approach

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):8 pp. - 55
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (286 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Expanding demand on the Internet services leads to an increased role of the network dimensioning problem for elastic traffic where one needs to allocate bandwidth to maximize service flows and simultaneously to reach a fair treatment of all the elastic services. Thus, both the overall efficiency (throughput) and the fairness (equity) among various services are important. The max-min fairness (MMF)... View full abstract»

  • Sojourn time of elastic flows under perturbation of unresponsive traffic

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (204 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Motivated by the need to develop simple models to obtain qualitative results for evaluating the impact of unresponsive traffic on elastic flows, we assume that transmission capacity is offered to elastic flows in a processor sharing fashion as function of the unresponsive traffic and quantified by means of a perturbation parameter e. For such a system, we analyze the impact of the perturbation on ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (161 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We study the optimal division of cells into different service areas served under different coordinated transmission modes, i.e. combinations of base stations simultaneously transmitting, in order to avoid the adverse effect of inter-cell interference and to maximize the system capacity. We focus on the general case where the traffic load is inhomogeneous and give a complete characterization of the... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (222 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We study the load balancing problem in a dense wireless multihop network, where a typical path consists of large number of hops, i.e., the spatial scales of a typical distance between source and destination, and mean distance between the neighboring nodes are strongly separated. In this limit, we present a general framework for analyzing the traffic load resulting from a given set of paths and tra... View full abstract»

    With the increasing popularity of mobile wireless communication systems, customers are expecting the same quality of service (QoS), availability and performance from the wireless communication networks as the traditional wire-line networks. Currently the research work on radio channel allocation in cellular mobile systems focuses mainly on two aspects, improving the user admission capability and p... View full abstract»
