NetIDE: Removing vendor lock-in in SDN

The Software-Defined Networking (SDN) paradigm allows networking hardware to be made “malleable” and remotely manageable by the so-called SDN controllers. However, the current SDN landscape is extremely fragmented. Different open and closed source controller frameworks such as Open-Daylight [1], Ryu [2], Floodlight [3], etc. exist. Porting SDN applications from one such platform to another is […]

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 […]

A greedy approach for minimizing SDN control overhead

In the SDN approach, the control and data planes are separated to enable programmability and interoperability, the control plane being logically centralized. Scalability and reliability are key properties for the SDN control plane. In WAN deployments, it is already envisioned as physically distributed to span across the networks and avoid single point of failure. In […]

Toward a semantic-based packet forwarding model for Openflow

Openflow is a step towards a more flexible data plane. In Openflow-based deployments, packet forwarding model relies on a set of pipelined tables. However, supporting multiple hardware tables is challenging while having serious limitations. In this paper, we investigate a novel approach to packet forwarding design that tailors Openflow forwarding paths according to the underlying […]

Analysis and Optimization of Random Sensing Order in Cognitive Radio Networks

Developing an efficient spectrum access policy enables cognitive radios to dramatically increase spectrum utilization while ensuring the predetermined quality of service levels for primary users (PUs). In this paper, the modeling, performance analysis, and optimization of a distributed secondary network with a random sensing order policy are studied. Specifically, secondary users (SUs) create a random […]

Precoding-Based Interference Mitigation for MR-OFDM in Smart Utility Networks

The emerging smart utility networks (SUN) provide two-way communications between smart meters and smart appliances to achieve low power usage, low cost and high reliability. Because SUN are composed of dense wireless devices, signal interference between the devices is an inevitable problem. This paper presents a precoder design that can reduce the effects of interference […]

Strategic frequency adaptation for mid-range magnetic induction-based Wireless Underground Sensor Networks

Some classes of sensing applications target scenarios where the overall system, including antenna and energy sub-system, is placed under the ground, through concrete, or under-the-debris (disaster scenario). A real-time soil moisture sensing system deployed at the root zone of a crop area for precise irrigation and an oil pipeline leak detection (PLD) system are particular […]

Cognitive Radio-Aware Transport Protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

With the proliferation of new wireless service, scarce wireless resources is expected to become a critical issue. For this reason, cognitive radio mobile ad hoc networks (CogMANET) are being developed as a promising solution to this problem. However, in CogMANET, channel switching is inherently necessary whenever a primary user with a license appears on the […]

PMU placement for HVDC connected network considering united and islanded conditions

PMUs play an essential rule in monitoring and control of power network. However, it is not possible to install PMUs at all buses of network, due to economical and technical constrains. Therefore, optimal PMU placement (OPP) is done to obtain full observability of network with minimum number of PMUs and maximum redundancy. On the other […]

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 […]
