Impact of transponders wake-up time on sleep-mode enabled translucent optical networks

  • Morea A.

A very promising energy-efficient strategy in core networks is to put unused transponders into a low-power idle state. However, the no-negligible wake-up time of the transponders may dramatically impact the network performance. We show through simulations that significant degradations on performance take place for long wake-up times for various traffic ...

Information-Centric Networks for Distributed Computing

  • Pianese F.

Information-centric Networking (ICN), a paradigm that operates on self-contained named data, naturally extends the role and capabilities of in-network elements. The flexible naming of ICN can be used to convey instructions for content routers to perform a target computation. In this paper, we consider ICN's potential of integrating distributed computing ...

Identifying abnormal patterns in cellular communication flows

  • Engel T.
  • Goergen D.
  • Mendiratta V.
