    Novel routing paradigms based on policies, quality of service (QoS) requirements, and packet content have been proposed for the Internet over the last decade. Constraint-based routing algorithms select a routing path satisfying constraints that are either administrative-oriented (policy routing) or service-oriented (QoS routing). The routes, in addition to satisfying constraints, are selected to r... View full abstract»

    In packet-switched network traffic management and control, efficiently allocating bandwidth to provide quantitative packet-level QoS to aggregate traffic has been difficult due to unpredictable, unknown statistical characteristics of the aggregate traffic. With inaccurate traffic information, using static bandwidth allocation results in the network being underutilized, or the QoS requirement not b... View full abstract»

    In this survey, we first review the concept of congestion control with a focus on the transmission control protocol/Internet protocol (TCP/IP). We describe many recently proposed algorithms to combat congestion and improve performance, particularly active queue management (AQM) algorithms such as random early detection (RED) and its variants. We then survey control-theoretic analysis and design of... View full abstract»

    Wireless cellular networks are quickly evolving toward broadband offering higher bandwidth. At the same time, these networks are also moving toward all-IP networks. In this article, we first describe the global mobility landscape for these future networks. This landscape is designed to be as generic as possible to allow us to compare several IP mobility management proposals with very different cha... View full abstract»
