    Mobility modeling is a critical step in the design of mobile self-organizing networks. With the emergence of small-scale and short-range wireless communication devices, the communication sphere shrinks (radio range or sensing range), which leads to an increase in the need for fine-grained representations of mobility. In fact, mobility models must scale accordingly to the application and reflect re... View full abstract»

    Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) is a technology that transports voice data packets across packet-switched networks using the Internet protocol (IP). Losing packets in the network is inevitable, and losing voice packets degrades audio quality. There are many loss-recovery techniques that designers can use to mitigate the undesired effects of packet loss. Some of these loss-recovery techniques u... View full abstract»

  • Adding network-layer intelligence to mobile receivers for solving spurious TCP timeout during vertical handoff

    With the help of mobile IP/IPv6 and soft handoff, ongoing TCP sessions can remain active and handoff packet loss can be avoided. However, TCP still faces several performance degradation issues due to the disparities in bandwidth and propagation delay between different access networks. Particularly, during vertical handoffs, some undesirable phenomena may erroneously trigger TCP congestion-control ... View full abstract»

    Public telephony - the preferred choice for two-way voice communication over a long time - has enjoyed remarkable popularity for providing acceptable voice quality with negligible connection delays, perhaps due to its circuit-switched heritage. Recently, IP telephony, a packet-based telephone service that runs as an application over the IP protocol, has been gaining popularity. To provide seamless... View full abstract»

    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are expected to be deployed for long periods of time, and the nodes are likely to need software updates during their lifetime, both for bug fixes and in order to support new requirements. But in many cases the nodes will be inaccessible or too numerous to be physically accessed. This drives the need for "over-the-air" support for software updates, and a number of di...
