    This article introduces the state-of-the-art progress in developing survivable routing schemes in the optical layer of modern mesh WDM networks. Emphasis is placed on the requirements for achieving survivability that keep stringent service continuity for bandwidth provisioning under any unexpected failure of network infrastructure (e.g., a link, node, or device). We first review the reported dynam... View full abstract»

    This article surveys important parameters for the design of large-scale network topology such as the YottaWeb topology. First, a wide range of performance measures to evaluate the behavior of envisaged topologies are presented, discussed and classified according to their meaning and their effectiveness on large-scale networks. Second, different types of topologies, from simple to more complex, are... View full abstract»

    The need for real-time services support over the Internet drives research efforts toward the provisioning of quality of service (QoS) guarantees in IP networks. Among the various aspects of QoS provisioning, QoS state establishment and maintenance in intermediate routers is a major factor, responsible for dynamic resource allocation. The dynamic manipulation of QoS state is possible through the ut... View full abstract»

    It is predicted that mobile applications will become an integral part of our lives at the personal and professional level. Mobile payment (MP) is a promising and exciting domain that has been rapidly developing recently, and although it can still be considered in its infancy, great hope is put on it. If MP efforts succeed, they will boost both e- and m-commerce and may be the killer service in 2.5... View full abstract»
