    Recently, device-to-device (D2D) communication has emerged to offer opportunities for high-rate wireless transmission locally in cellular networks. Such proximity-based communication technology, with advantages in high data transmission rate, spectrum efficiency, and energy efficiency over traditional technologies, has attracted tremendous research interest. Since D2D communication highly relies o... View full abstract»

    Content characteristics such as content size can bring significant benefits for both network management and improving quality of experience. However, the current Internet architecture does not have a direct mechanism to know content characteristics. In this article, we argue that it is necessary to integrate content characteristics into the future Internet architecture. We present the design chall... View full abstract»

    Injecting purposely-created probing traffic makes it possible to detect the presence and location of performance issues or faults, to reveal the topology of the network, and to investigate related properties. While researchers and network operators still rely on traditional tools (e.g., traceroute or ping) to shed light on the Internet, here we present six novel measurement techniques based on IP ...

    With an increasing demand to improve spectrum efficiency and energy efficiency in cellular networks, device-to-device (D2D) communications have drawn a lot of attention from both academia and industry. Cooperative D2D networking, which allows for cooperation among mobile users (MUs) via D2D links while communicating with other MUs or base stations (BSs), is one of the most promising techniques in ...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1334 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Although some excellent works have been done on networking, caching and computing, these three important areas have traditionally been addressed separately in the literature. In this article, we propose a novel framework that jointly considers networking, caching and computing techniques in order to improve end-to-end system performance. This integrated framework can enable dynamic orchestration o... View full abstract»

    Fifth generation (5G) cellular networks demand high throughput with low levels of delay and congestion within the core network. Excessive throughput demands at the core network with the exponential increase in the number of mobile users and devices have become major challenges for 5G. Several techniques have been developed for offloading traffic at the front line of cellular networks. For example,... View full abstract»

    Long Term Evolution (LTE) and its revision, Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A), were designed for high performance communications between devices operated by human users. However, when these networks are used for Machineto- Machine (M2M) traffic, i.e., communications between smart electronic devices that do not need human supervision, performance is far from satisfactory. This is mostly due to t... View full abstract»

    Named data networking (NDN) is a typical implementation of information-centric networking (ICN), which has been widely investigated in recent years for its potential as the next-generation network architecture. Optical networks are important as the demand for Internet bandwidth is enormous and they can be used to attain extremely high bandwidth. In this article, we study optical named data network...

    Wireless body area networks (WBANs) aim to improve the speed, accuracy and reliability of communication of sensors/actuators that are energy-limited. Some significant physiological parameters need a higher transmission rate and a larger amount of energy. Since they harvest different amounts of energy from the surrounding environment of the human body, the advances in wireless energy transfer provi... View full abstract»
