A wavelength broker for markets of competing optical transport networks

  • Yassine A.

The current trend in optical networks is to open the entire wholesale market to competition. As a result, we will see, instead of a single big market player, optical transport networks competing with each other to attract customer demand. This paper presents a wavelength broker who acts on behalf of ...

A fully integrated tunable heterodyne source designed for the generation and modulation of sub-Terahertz signals is demonstrated. This device is to be used for high data-rate wireless transmissions. DFB lasers, SOA amplifiers, passive waveguides, beam combiners, electro-optic modulators and high speed photodetectors have been integrated on the same InP-based platform. ...

Deadline and Incast Aware TCP for Data Center Networks

  • Choi N.
  • Hwang J.
  • Yoo J.

Nowadays, data centers have been a key resource to provide a plethora of rich online services such as web search and social networking. The data center applications follow the Partition/Aggregate traffic pattern based on a tree-like logical topology, where the aggregator node may gather response data from thousands of worker ...

Method of reliability and availability analysis from the dynamic properties of routing and forwarding paths

  • Careglio D.
  • Demeester P.
  • Papadimitriou D.
  • Tarissan F.

Confronted to the increasing dynamic of Internet routing system and its underlying topology, we propose a reliability and availability analysis method based on the characterization of the dynamic properties (in particular, the stability properties) of routing paths and their corresponding forwarding paths. The key driver underlying this method is that ...

Discovery Hub: exploratory search on remote linked data sources

  • Marie N.
  • Ribiere M.
  • Rodio F.

Exploratory search systems are built specifically to help the users during cognitive consuming search tasks like learning or topic investigation. The richness of the linked data datasets, their formal semantics and their connected nature can significantly help in this context. In this paper, we present a method to perform exploratory ...

Layer Transmission for Cooperative Communication with Asymmetric Relay Channels

  • Han F.
  • Jiang Q.
  • Meng Y.
  • Shen G.

In downlink relay system, the conventional straightforward relaying scheme named decode-and-forward (DF) protocol is used at relay station (RS) to decode the data received from the base station (BS) and forward the decoded data to the mobile station (MS) to improve the spatial diversity gain. It is not spectrum efficient ...

Composite interests’ exploration thanks to on-the-fly linked data spreading activation

  • Marie N.
  • Ribiere M.

Exploratory search systems are built specifically to help the user in his cognitive consuming search tasks like learning or topic investigation. Some of these systems are built on the top of linked data and use semantics to provide cognitively-optimized search experiences. Thanks to their richness and to their connected nature ...

An Evolution of Load Balancing Strategies in Co-Channel HetNets: Dynamic eICIC to Multi-Streaming

  • Pupala R.
  • Vasudevan S.
  • Venkatesan S.

Range extension of pico cells facilitated by muting of macro cells has been the main load balancing strategy for LTE co-channel HetNets and standardized under the moniker of enhanced Inter-cell Interference Co-ordination (eICIC) in 3GPP. In order to adapt to varying load due to user mobility or traffic activity, both ...

Witnessing Program Transformations

  • Namjoshi K.
  • Zuck L.

We study two closely related problems: (a) showing that a program transformation is correct and (b) propagating a program invariant through a sequence of transformations. The second problem is motivated by an application where invariants on a program are used to enhance both the scope and the quality of the ...

SDN programmability theoretical and standardization aspects

  • Papadimitriou D.
  • Sales B.

SDN research directions as outlined in IRTF RG [1] outlines i) The need for more flexibility and programmability at the data plane level and ii) The need for higher-level languages for programming together with testing and debugging. There are three fundamental challenges behind these directions (assuming that local function or ...

Enabling Data Offload and Proximity Services Using Device to Device Communication over Licensed Cellular Spectrum with Infrastructure Contol

  • K S.
  • Sivanesan K.
  • Vasudevan S.
  • Zou J.

The viability of device to device(D2D) communication on uplink resources as also the benefits accruing from network control over such communication, on licensed spectrum, are quite well understood today. We investigate the merits of a particular system instantiation based on these two tenets. The challenge of scheduling communication between two ...

Performance analysis for device-to-device communications with optimal power control

  • Cai L.
