    Mutual authentication and session key exchange protocols based on certificates for the wireless mobile communication/computing system are proposed. First, two improved versions for the conventional certificate-based systems are proposed, and an offline authentication mechanism based on the dynamic certificate is introduced. Then, an end-to-end internetwork-authenticated session key exchange protoc... View full abstract»

    We outline a design of a highly scalable network monitoring, visualization, and control (NMVC) system with advanced algorithmic and human-in-the-loop capability. This capability allows network administrators to calibrate and fine-tune network and application parameters in real time according to observed traffic patterns. The goal of the NMVC system is to ensure adequate quality of service to netwo... View full abstract»

    When a GSM user travels to a foreign country, it is anticipated that a call delivery from a caller in that country to the GSM roamer should be a local phone call. Unfortunately, under the current GSM implementation, the call delivery results in two international calls! In this article we explain why current GSM implementation is expensive for this kind of call delivery, and then propose four solut... View full abstract»

    With the prospect of widespread deployment of ATM by public network operators, it is crucial to ensure resilience to network outages caused by cable breaks and node failures. The general aim of resilience is to make network failures transparent to users. If a failure happens to affect a circuit, it would be very desirable to reconfigure that circuit as quickly as possible with no information loss.... View full abstract»

    The move toward market deregulation and open competition has sparked a wave of serious introspection in the telecommunications service industry. Telecom providers and operators are now required to open up their primary revenue channels to competing industries. The competition for product differentiation increasingly depends on the level of sophistication, degree of flexibility, and speed of deploy... View full abstract»
