Boosting named data networking for efficient packet forwarding in urban VANET scenarios

Named Data Networking (NDN) is a data-centric architecture designed for the future Internet. Existing works show that NDN brings significant performance improvement for typical content-centric applications, and can also fit the mobile environment well. However, directly applying NDN to Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) is confronted with great challenges due to the high mobility of […]

Extending OpenFlow for SDN-enabled synchronous Ethernet networks

There is an increasing need of synchronization and clock frequency distribution in core and access networks. Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) is a technology that is able to distribute clock frequency over Ethernet networks, while keeping scalability and reduced costs. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is another emerging technology that is changing the landscape of network management by separating […]

Load-dependent flow splitting for traffic engineering in resilient OpenFlow networks

In this paper we propose and investigate load-dependent load balancing for resilient OpenFlow networks. The objective is to spare extra capacity for the primary path of a traffic aggregate (flow) by accommodating excess traffic on its backup path. The contribution of the paper is manyfold. We explain existing OpenFlow features for traffic monitoring and dynamic […]

Independent transient plane design for protection in OpenFlow-based networks

Network protection against link failure is required to allow packets to reach the destination with minimal packet loss when a failure occurs. When a link fails, traffic that attempts to use the failed link is interrupted. Typically, routers in the network discover the failure and find a new route to bypass the failed link. Alternatively, […]

Disintegrated channel estimation in scalable filter-and-forward relay network with IRI coordination

Accurate channel estimation (CE) techniques are highly desired to achieve the spatial diversity that is supported by multiple relays. This paper investigates a disintegrated CE technique that is unavoidably required for the space-time coding in the cooperative relay network and that can effectively work in a scalable relay network with a fixed protocol. The filter-and-forward […]

Network economics in cognitive networks

Cellular networks are confronted with unprecedented pressure to accommodate the dramatically increasing demands of mobile Internet. This phenomenon is principally due to the restricted spectrum resource and low-efficiency spectrum management. Recently, cognitive radio technology has been corroborated to significantly improve spectrum utilization efficiency. In order to enhance the spectrum management efficiency in cellular networks, the […]

The Optimal Node Placement for Long Belt Coverage in Wireless Networks

The optimal node placement for a very large plane without boundary effect has been proven to be the regular triangular-lattice pattern in 1939. However, the regular triangular-lattice placement may not be optimal in a long belt with an upper and lower boundary. This paper proposes an optimal node deployment pattern to minimize the number of […]

Minimal virtualized-elastic-regenerator placement and least congestion resources assignment for translucent elastic optical networks

A virtualized-elastic-regenerator (VER) is a promising solution for efficiently regenerating various superchannels in elastic optical networks. We propose an effective heuristic for calculating minimal VER placement, routing, and least congestion resources assignment.

Multicore Fiber Enabled WSDM Optical Access Network with Centralized Carrier Delivery and RSOA Based Adaptive Modulation

We proposed and experimentally demonstrated a wavelength-space division multiplexing (WSDM) optical access network architecture with centralized optical carrier delivery utilizing multicore fibers (MCFs) and adaptive modulation based on reflective semiconductor amplifier (RSOA). In our experiment, five of the outer cores are used for undirectional downstream (DS) transmission only, while the remaining outer core is utilized […]

Incorporating Bacterial Properties for Plasmid Delivery in Nano Sensor Networks

The new paradigm of molecular communication aims to utilize biological components and systems for developing communication systems. One promising candidate for molecular communication is the use of bacteria to carry information between different nanomachines. However, there is a lack of connection between molecular communication and the design of nanomachines for payload delivery. Utilizing molecular communication […]
