    Wireless sensor and actor networks (WSANs) constitute an emerging and pervasive technology that is attracting increased interest for a wide range of applications. The increasing functionality of this kind of network makes it necessary to propose tools and methodologies to facilitate software development. This paper proposes a middleware called MWSAN to provide a set of high level services for sens... View full abstract»

  • An Efficient Data Transmission Protocol in a Wireless Sensor-Actuator Network

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):11 - 18
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (433 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In a wireless sensor-actuator network (WSAN), sensor nodes and actuator nodes are interconnected with wireless channels. Messages sent by sensor nodes might be lost due to collision and noise if multiple sensor nodes simultaneously send the messages in a wireless channel. In sensing applications, sensed values are in nature required to be delivered to actuator nodes with some time constraints. If ... View full abstract»

  • MPLS Traffic Engineering in Satellite Networks

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):19 - 26
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (129 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Broadband satellite constellation networks will be required to carry all types of IP traffic, real time interactive traffic as well as non-real time traffic, warranting the need for appropriate QoS for these different traffic flows. In this paper we investigate the need for MPLS traffic engineering in GEO/MEO/LEO satellite networks to address QoS issues. We compare the service received by TCP and ... View full abstract»

  • A Monitoring Service for Relational Databases to Support Advanced Data Integration on the Grid

    The trend of grid computing towards more data intensive applications, accessing more and more relational databases and requiring advanced data integration, is still upstanding. Metadata information, e.g. for selection of suitable candidates among similar sources and the exclusion of not required ones, plays a vital role for efficient data integration on the grid. However, there is a lack of servic... View full abstract»

    User modelling in on-line distance learning is an important research field focusing on two important aspects: describing and predicting students' actions and intentions as well as adapting the learning process to students' features, habits, preferences, and so on. The aim is to greatly stimulate and improve the learning experience. Indeed, on the one hand, students' intentions may change during th... View full abstract»

    Factors such as CPU utilization, throughput, turnaround time, waiting time, and response time can influence system performance. Different operating systems use different scheduling algorithms to achieve their goals. System performance of grid computing is calculated from resources usages. Job scheduling is more important when jobs are not uniformly distributed in all grid nodes. In order to achiev... View full abstract»

  • E-Service Emergence: A Bio-Inspired Method of Composition

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):53 - 59
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (278 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we introduce an emergence modeling approach to the study of e-service composition, which is inspired by the characteristics of emergence and self-evolution in biological neuroendocrine and immune system. E-services are represented by autonomous bio-entities (mobile agents with biological operation), each bio-entity is described by a Melay state machine. The request of integrating co...

  • A Distributed QoS Routing and CAC Framework: Performance Evaluation of Its SSRA and InterD Agents

    Publication Year: 2007, Page(s):60 - 67
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (918 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In order to support multimedia communication, it is necessary to develop routing algorithms which use for routing more than one QoS parameters. This is because new services such as video on demand and remote meeting systems require better QoS. Also, for admission control of multimedia applications different QoS parameters should be considered. In our previous work, we proposed an intelligent routi... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (112 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In recent years, the leasing concept has become increasingly popular in the field of distributed systems; main examples are JINI and the introduction of leasing to the CORBA context. Nevertheless, no detailed analysis of leasing variants and their fields of application has been done yet. In this paper, we give a systematic classification of possible leasing variants, discuss their advantages and d... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a middleware for multi-agents on a distributed system as a general test-bed for bio-inspired approaches. It is unique to other approaches, including distributed object systems, because it can maintain and migrate a dynamic federation of multiple agents on different computers. It enables each agent to explicitly define its own deployment policy as a relocation between itself and... View full abstract»

    The distributed queue dual bus network is a LAN/MAN protocol proposed by the IEEE 802.6 committee. It can integrate isochronous and nonisochronous services. Due to its medium access control protocol, the network has the unfairness of access for bursty traffic. This paper explores the effect of bursty lengths on the unfairness. In the simulations of the paper, the average delays of distributed and ... View full abstract»

  • Performance Estimation of TCP under SYN Flood Attacks

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (177 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The SYN flood attack is a DoS (denial of service) method affecting hosts to retain the half-open state and causing to exhaust its memory resources. This attack is hardly filtered by the router in such a case that the source IP address is spoofed. In this paper, we present the performance estimation of TCP under SYN flood attacks and propose a detective method at an early stage. We implement an att... View full abstract»
