    Network devices are fundamental items in computer network design. The selection of the best device must be in terms of price to performance ratio since there is a budget limit to build a computer network. In this paper, we compare the packet loss rate (PLR), throughput and jitter of switches from different vendors and with different prices. A standard methodology is implemented to evaluate these p...

    Radio frequency identification (RFID) is an integral part of our life, which increases productivity and convenience. It is the term coined for short-range radio technology used to communicate mainly digital information between a stationary location and a movable object or between movable objects. This RFID system uses the principle of modulated backscatter where it can transfer the data from the t... View full abstract»

    The trend of Internet-working applications has created a demand for a more decentralized yet dynamic approach to the network and distribution systems. To deploy an XML-based network, with its core technologies, presents an effective solution to the network and distribution systems management task. While SNMP falls short in meeting the challenges and the dynamic changes on the network, XML-based te... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a new key feature of SATA standard, native command queuing (NCQ). This feature is specific to the SATA interface but is similar in some ways to other reordering protocols developed for the small computer system interface (SCSI). Building a queue is the first component of this protocol. The drive must know when it receives a command whether it should queue the command or whethe... View full abstract»

    This article describes an approach for designing various low-cost, fault-tolerant uniprocessor applications using a multiprocessor. The proposed software-based fault-tolerant model is an economic and effective solution towards tolerating transients and intermittent faults that may occur during the run time of a multiprocessor application system. In this article, the proposed technique adopts the s... View full abstract»

    Data mining is the process of discovering meaningful new correlations, patterns, and trends by sifting through large amounts of data stored in repositories, using pattern recognition as well as statistical and mathematical techniques. Many tasks can be accomplished with data mining: classification, forecasting, clustering, deviation detection, description, visualization, and link analysis. In this... View full abstract»
