DualQ Coupled AQM for Low Latency, Low Loss and Scalable Throughput

  • De Schepper K.
  • Tsang I.

Data Centre TCP (DCTCP) was designed to provide predictably low queuing latency, near-zero loss, and throughput scalability using explicit congestion notification (ECN) and an extremely simple marking behaviour on switches. However, DCTCP does not co-exist with existing TCP traffic---throughput starves. So, until now, DCTCP could only be deployed where a ...

Real-Time SDN-based BVTs enable fine baud-rate tunability to combat the filtering effect in fixed-grid optical network for interoperability between fixed-grid/flexigrid. The SDN controller manages BVTs to maximize the link capacity for bandwidth maximization.

Optimal Sensing of Community Structure From Device Data - An Active Learning Approach

  • Kushnir D.
  • Lee J.

As mobile communication devices have grown popular in the possession of the average individual, location information retrieved from such devices is becoming a promising mean to detect and analyze social behavior and structure. Furthermore, the use of high resolution in-door location or proximity data allows detecting very delicate and high-resolution ...

IoT-comunity Aware Multicast and Broadcast

  • Boussard M.
  • Bui D.
  • Douville R.

In order to secure the Internet of Things, we have proposed to split connected devices into small groups, called as communities of devices. Each of those communities connects devices authorized to communicate with each other using a defined set of applications. To isolate information exchange within each community, the network ...

Experimental investigation of electrical and optical filtering effects in coherent transmissions

  • Bigo S.
  • Delezoide C.
  • Jenneve P.

Very little is known on how filtering impacts performance. We experimentally investigate filtering impact in back-to-back configuration and provide an extension of typical models that considerably improve fitting accuracy in presence of filtering.

Mitigation of Polarization Dependent Loss using Low-Complexity Semi-Blind Equalization of the Golden Code

  • Awwad E.
  • Charlet G.
  • Rios Muller R.
  • Tran P.

We experimentally demonstrate the reduction of polarization dependent loss penalties in polarization division multiplexed (PDM) systems using the 2x2 Golden code along with a low-complexity semi-blind equalization at the receiver.

Multilayer Interoperability experiment on IDEALIST European Testbed based on flexible elastic optical network

  • Huges Salas E.
  • Layec P.
  • Martinez Ricardo
  • Moro R.
  • Napoli A.

In this paper, we investigate the potential of multilayer flexible optical network on a pan European testbed. With SDN based controller in Spain, local controllers and equipements in England and Italy, we validate from control plane to data plane the realtime transmission accross a flexible optical cross connect network with ...

On the Burst Erasure Capability of Spatially Coupled LDPC Ensembles

  • Aref V.
  • Rengaswamy N.
  • Schmalen L.

Spatially-Coupled LDPC (SC-LDPC) ensembles achieve the capacity of binary memoryless channels, asymptotically, under belief-propagation decoding. In this work, we are interested in the finite-length performance of these ensembles on binary channels with memory. We study the average performance of random regular SC-LDPC ensembles on the single block erasure channel and ...

The Future of Communications

  • Hofmann M.
  • Lee A.
  • Olofsson B.

The essence of communication is the imparting or exchanging of information. We can broadly define three primary types of communication personal, media, and control type communication, each of which results in the exchange of information between people or systems. Personal communication can be regarded as the exchange of information or ...

Advertising Competitions in Social Networks

  • Masucci A.
  • Silva Allende A.

In the present work we study the advertising competition of several marketing campaigns who need to decide how many resources to allocate to potential customers to advertise their products through direct marketing while taking into account that competing marketing campaigns are trying to do the same. Potential customers express a ...

Next-Generation Forward Error Correction: Can we Close the Gap to the Shannon Limit?

  • Aref V.
  • Roesener D.
  • Schmalen L.
  • Suikat D.

We report the current status of forward error correction schemes and show how close we can operate to some theoretical limits taking into account the size of the codes. We show that spatially coupled LDPC codes are good candidates for bridging the gap to capacity and compare some practical codes ...

IoT - Impact on Mobile Networks

  • Dhingra V.

IoT is poised to revolutionize industries and ways we live and work. These things will digitally connect to other devices and the network via multiple technologies. MNOs are making significant investments in M2M communications for providing connectivity as well as value added services to IoT application providers and enterprises. However, ...

The Future of Information
