    A reliable control plane plays a crucial role in creating high-level services in the next-generation transport network based on the generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS) or automatically switched optical networks (ASON) model. Approaches to control-plane survivability, based on protection, and restoration mechanisms, are examined. Procedures for the control plane state recovery are dis... View full abstract»

    IP telephony over mobile ad hoc networks is a topic of emerging interest in the research arena as one of the paths toward the fixed-mobile convergence in telecommunications networks. To investigate the performance characteristics of this service, we propose a complete system architecture, which includes a MAC protocol, a routing protocol, and the treatment of voice packets. The telephone system is... View full abstract»

    We present a simple framework for designing network layer protocols for sensor networks including localized routing, broadcasting, area coverage, and so on. The framework is general enough and is applicable to a variety of problems, network assumptions, and optimality criteria. Our simple framework is based on optimizing the ratio of the cost of making certain decisions (e.g., selecting a forwardi... View full abstract»

    Research involving Web cache replacement policy has been active for at least a decade. In this-article we would like to claim that there is a sufficient number of good policies, and further proposals would only produce minute improvements. We argue that the focus should be fitness for purpose rather than proposing any new policies. Up to now, almost all policies were purported to perform better th... View full abstract»

    The ever-increasing growth of user demand, the limitations of the third generation of wireless mobile communication systems, and the emergence of new mobile broadband technologies on the market have brought researchers and industries to a thorough reflection on the fourth generation. Many prophetic visions have appeared in the literature presenting 4G as the ultimate boundary of wireless mobile co... View full abstract»
