    The use of OVSF codes in WCDMA systems has offered opportunities to provide variable data rates to flexibly support applications with different bandwidth requirements. Two important issues in such an environment are the code placement problem and code replacement problem. The former may have significant impact on code utilization and, thus, code blocking probability, while the latter may affect th... View full abstract»

    Code mobility and mobile agents have received a lot of attention as a paradigm based on which distributed applications can be built. There has been little work however on the mathematical modeling of component mobility. In this direction, we present and analyze three optimization models for component mobility. We are seeking the optimal allocation of components to network nodes and the optimal com... View full abstract»

  • An efficient optimistic message logging scheme for recoverable mobile computing systems

    A number of checkpointing and message logging algorithms have been proposed to support fault tolerance of mobile computing systems. However, little attention has been paid to the optimistic message logging scheme. Optimistic logging has a lower failure-free operation cost compared to other logging schemes. It also has a lower failure recovery cost compared to the checkpointing schemes. This paper ... View full abstract»

  • Goodput analysis and link adaptation for IEEE 802.11a wireless LANs

    Link adaptation to dynamically select the data transmission rate at a given time has been recognized as an effective way to improve the goodput performance of the IEEE 802.11 wireless local-area networks (WLANs). Recently, with the introduction of the new high-speed 802.11a physical layer (PHY), it is even more important to have a well-designed link adaptation scheme work with the 802.11a PHY such...

  • A model for mobile code using interacting automata

    The Internet supports migration of code from node to node. A number of paradigms exist for distributed computing and mobile code, including client/server, remote evaluation, code-on-demand, and mobile agents. We find them overly-restrictive views of reality. We propose a model that can express previous paradigms as special cases. We derive a model using cellular automata (CA) abstractions to study... View full abstract»

  • A comprehensive resource management framework for next generation wireless networks

    We propose an integrated resource management approach that can be implemented in next generation wireless networks that support multimedia services (data, voice, video, etc.). Specifically, we combine the use of position-assisted and mobility predictive advanced bandwidth reservation with a call admission control and bandwidth reconfiguration strategy to support flexible QoS management. We also in... View full abstract»
