    As its benefits become more and more vivid, the networks have generated business transactions from enterprises and the rest of the society as well at a rapid pace. Networks have already penetrated deeply into our society and people's lives with Mobile and Fixed and/or Wireless Broadband services so that multimedia over wired or wireless architecture can be accessed everywhere. A computer network, ... View full abstract»

    An increasing number of Internet applications and services render network management more troublesome for bandwidth misuse and security concern. As a result, network traffic identification plays an increasingly important role in network management. Deep packet inspection (DPI) is one of the effective approaches. Conventional network devices lookup the header of a packet, but DPI means the n... View full abstract»

    The emergence of computationally rich vehicles and recent advances in wireless communication technologies are fuelling vehicular network research in industry and academia. A key challenge to the successful deployment of vehicular communication is the implementation and efficiency of the medium access control (MAC) layer. There are mainly two types of MAC approaches, namely contention based and con... View full abstract»

    With the rapid requirement and development of the green ICT (Information and Communication Technology) technology, the demand for dynamically radio spectrum resources has significant attention. The low utilisation of licensed spectrum leads to the scarcity of the spectrum resource. The emerging cognitive radio (CR) systems become increasingly important in the wireless green communication. In cogni... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose two flow driven medium access control (MAC) protocols for mobile long distance ad hoc networks, which are suitable for applications in emergency rescue and battlefield communications. The first one is called flow driven MAC (FD-MAC). It is a slot based MAC protocol that combines random and reservation based access scheme. For short-duration data flows, it employs a...
