Analyzing the impact of business interoperability on the performance of cooperative supply chain networks

The originality of this paper consists in proposing a model that can be used to simulate the manner in which companies interoperate in cooperative supply chain networks. The objective is to develop a model that enables the analysis of the impact of business interoperability on the performance of cooperative supply chain networks. The analysis of […]

Robust Optimization of Storage Investment on Transmission Networks

This paper discusses the need for the integration of storage systems on transmission networks having renewable sources, and presents a tool for energy storage planning. The tool employs robust optimization to minimize the investment in storage units that guarantee a feasible system operation, without load or renewable power curtailment, for all scenarios in the convex […]

Effect of MAC type and speed on neighbor discovery in wireless train networks

In this paper, a wireless neighbor discovery (ND) process in a linear topology of a high-speed train backbone network is studied. A key step that enables communication in such a network is that of topology discovery (TD), whereby nodes learn in a distributed fashion the physical topology of the backbone network. ND, where each individual […]

Network Coding Protocols for Data Gathering Applications

Tunable sparse network coding (TSNC) with various sparsity levels of the coded packets and different feedback mechanisms is analysed in the context of data gathering applications in multi-hop networks. The goal is to minimize the completion time, i.e., the total time required to collect all data packets from the nodes while maintaining the per packet […]

A tunable common mode inductor with an auxiliary winding network

In conventional switching converter, the parasitic capacitance between switching circuit and ground introduces common mode (CM) noise problem. A CM inductor is inserted in the power feeding paths to produce a high impedance to attenuate the CM noise. However, this parasitic capacitance and the CM inductor create low-frequency resonance near the switching frequency and its […]

Dual-band dual-mode patch antenna for on-/off-body WBAN communications

A novel coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed dual-band dual-mode patch antenna for on-/off-body communications is proposed. The proposed antenna, which comprises a T-shaped patch with parasitic patches, a circular patch, and a CPW feed line, has dimensions of 30 mm × 45 mm × 3.2 mm. The proposed antenna operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band (2.4 […]

An advanced patient bedside monitoring system design based on WBAN and telemedicine technologies

An advanced patient-centric bedside monitoring system design based on wireless body area sensor networks and telemedicine technologies is proposed in this paper where each patient uses sensors with wireless transmission capabilities and transmit the physiological signals within a larger advanced network, which is connected to a secured section of the public network. This work intends […]

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 […]

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, […]
