  • Distributed and Adaptive Routing Based on Game Theory

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):1 - 9
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (298 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we present a new adaptive multiflow routing algorithm to select end-to-end paths in packetswitched networks. This algorithm provides provable optimality guarantees in the following game theoretic sense: The network configuration converges to a configuration arbitrarily close to a pure Nash equilibrium. In this context, a Nash equilibrium is a configuration in which no flow can impro... View full abstract»

  • Scheduling Jobs with Estimation Errors for Multi-server Systems

    When scheduling single server systems, Shortest Remaining Processing Time (SRPT) minimizes the number of jobs in the system at every point in time. However, a major limitation of SRPT is that it requires job processing times a priori. In practice, it is likely that only estimates of job processing times are available. This paper proposes a policy that schedules jobs with estimated job processing t... View full abstract»

  • Real-Time Fair Resource Allocation in Distributed Software Defined Networks

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):19 - 27
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (868 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The performance of computer networks relies on how bandwidth is shared among different flows. Fair resource allocation is a challenging problem particularly when the flows evolve over time. To address this issue, bandwidth sharing techniques that quickly react to the traffic fluctuations are of interest, especially in large scale settings with hundreds of nodes and thousands of flows. In this cont... View full abstract»

    Video traffic is a key-challenge for fixed and mobile operators facing variable and massive load and variety of Over- The-Top (OTT) videos. Energy consumption is also a heavy Opex component, where the Fixed-Mobile Convergence is a promising solution, built on on economical optic fibers and LTE baseband operations consolidation. By combining Future Internet Architectures (FIA) principles such as ub... View full abstract»

    Fuelled by the proliferation of smartphones, wireless traffic has experienced huge growth, which will continue with the emergence of ultra-broadband 5G applications, and exacerbate the capacity strain in cellular networks. Deployment of pico access points, reducing cell sizes and allowing more efficient reuse of limited radio spectrum, provides a powerful approach to cope with traffic hot spots an...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (824 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Anticipatory networking is a recent branch of network optimization that exploits contextual information to improve resource allocation decisions based on prediction. While some anticipatory networking concepts have been proposed in the literature, understanding of the potential real-world gains is so far very limited. Future mobile networks will likely integrate such mechanisms, and thus it is of ... View full abstract»

  • Experimental Comparison of Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensors Networks: Routing Overhead and Asymmetric Links

    RPL (the IETF Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks) and LRP (Lightweight Routing Protocol) have in common to build a collection tree (or, more precisely, a DODAG) and "downward" host routes in the wireless sensor network. Additionally, the objective of LRP is to keep control overhead as low as possible. To substantiate this claim, we compare RPL and LRP using 40 nodes of the IoT-LAB t... View full abstract»

  • Skampling for the Flow Duration Distribution

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):63 - 71
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (743 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper concerns the problem of estimating the Internet flow duration distribution from indirect measurements due to network constraints. The aim is to estimate the distribution from observing: the possible superpositions (collisions) of sampled flow durations, the flow arrivals-to-departures times without identification of sampled flows and the number of sampled flows in progress. For each typ... View full abstract»

  • Multi-low-rank Approximation for Traffic Matrices

    With the Internet applications become more complex and diverse, simple network traffic matrix estimation or approximation methods such as gravity model are no longer adequate. In this paper, we advocate a novel approach of approximating traffic matrices with multiple low-rank matrices. We build the theory behind the MULTI-LOW-RANK approximation and discuss the conditions under which it is better t... View full abstract»

    Traffic classification, i.e. associating network traffic to the application that generated it, is an important tool for several tasks, spanning on different fields (security, management, traffic engineering, R&D). This process is challenged by applications that preserve Internet users' privacy by encrypting the communication content, and even more by anonymity tools, additionally hiding the so...

    Machine-to-machine (M2M) traffic is variegate and finding a traffic model which can cover a wide range of M2M sources is challenging. In this paper we address this challenge by proposing an extension of legacy renewal processes for modeling of M2M traffic sources. To this end, we first describe the model and derive some performance parameters, as the overall packet arrival distribution and its mom... View full abstract»

    Among the proposed opportunistic content sharing services, Floating Content (FC) is of special interest for the vehicular environment, not only for cellular traffic offloading, but also as a natural communication paradigm for location-based context-aware vehicular applications. Existing results on the performance of vehicular FC have focused on content persistence, without addressing the key issue... View full abstract»

    Beaconing is a basic communication process taking place in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) to achieve cooperative awareness among vehicles on the road. It is actually a paradigm of information spreading among peer-agents, where each node of a networks sends periodically broadcast messages containing information collected by the node itself. A trade-off arises between the update frequency of the... View full abstract»

  • Incentive-Rewarding Mechanisms to Stimulate Participation in Heterogeneous DTNs

    Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) rely on the cooperation of nodes in a network to forward a message from its source to its destination. Most of previous studies on DTNs have focused on the design of routing schemes under the hypothesis that each relay node is willing to participate in the forwarding process. However, the delivery of a message incurs energy and memory costs. In this paper we handle t... View full abstract»

    The rapid proliferation of devices of the Internet of Things requires a vast network of heterogeneous devices to maintain the ability to communicate rapidly and seamlessly. The transition to delay sensitive Tactile Internet applications would demand on a new information and communications infrastructure.
