    Many TCP-friendly congestion control schemes have been proposed to pursue the TCP-equivalence criterion, which states that a TCP-equivalent flow should have the same throughput with TCP if it experiences identical network conditions as TCP. Additionally, the throughput should converge as fast as TCP when the packet-loss conditions change. This study classifies eight typical TCP-friendly schemes ac... View full abstract»

    Audio-visual services are now commonly used on the Internet. Many of them are based on batch downloading of contents for later replay. Real-time interactive and streaming services are now rapidly becoming popular. These services would benefit from quality of service if it were widely provided. The purpose of this article is to show how QoS solutions may be introduced incrementally. Quality is obta... View full abstract»

    Voice over IP is one of the most popular applications in broadband access networks. It is anticipated that the characteristics of call holding times (CHTs) for VoIP calls will be quite different from traditional phone calls. This article analyzes the CHTs for mobile VoIP calls based on measured data collected from commercial operation. Previous approaches directly used the Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S)... View full abstract»

    The explosive growth in the use of mobile devices coupled with users' desires for real-time applications has provided new challenges in the design of protocols for mobile ad hoc networks. Chief among these challenges to enabling real-time applications for mobile ad hoc networks is incorporating support for quality of service (QoS), such as meeting bandwidth or delay constraints. In particular, it ... View full abstract»

    Sensory data gathered from sensor nodes in physical proximity tend to exhibit strong correlation. To minimize such redundancy and hence curtail the load in wireless sensor networks with a goal to conserve energy, effective in-network fusion schemes have been extensively proposed in the literature. To this end, routing schemes supporting data fusion are extremely important as they dictate where and... View full abstract»

    Surveillance wireless sensor networks are deployed at perimeter or border locations to detect unauthorized intrusions. For deterministic deployment of sensors, the quality of deployment can be determined sufficiently by analysis in advance of deployment. However, when random deployment is required, determining the deployment quality becomes challenging. To assess the quality of sensor deployment, ... View full abstract»

    Broadband wireless access networks, such as the IEEE 802.16 standard for wireless metropolitan area networks (WMANs), aim to provide high bandwidth, low-cost, scalable solutions that extend multimedia services from backbone networks to wireless users. Because of a larger coverage area, portability and mobility have become significant issues for providing high quality mobile services, as it is cruc... View full abstract»
