Internet multicast congestion control

Önal, Kerem
Congestion control is among the fundamental problems of Internet multicast. It is an active research area with many challenges. In this study, an introduction to Internet congestion control and a brief literature survey of current multicast congestion control protocols is presented. Then two recently proposed 3single-rate, end-to-end, rate based4 class of protocols, namely LESBCC and TFMCC are evaluated with respect to their intersession fairness (TCP-friendliness), smoothness and responsiveness criteria. Throughout the experiments, which are conducted using a widely accepted network simulation tool 1ns2, different topologies have been employed.


Mobile multi-access IP: a proposal for mobile multi-access management in future wireless IP networks
Altuntas, S; Baykal, Buyurman (Elsevier BV, 2005-03-15)
As the wireless networking technologies advance rapidly, providing mobile users with roaming freely in heterogeneous wireless access domains, the need for multi-access arises. This paper introduces the Mobile Multi-Access Management Architecture (MMA-IP) for IP-based future wireless networks. MMA-IP enables mobile users to utilize multiple access domains synchronously and to switch between different access domains. In order to handle multi-access operations, MMA-IP defines a new special mobility agent, call...
Software implementations of QoS scheduling algorithms for high speed networks /
Pehlivanlı, Aydın; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
The end to end Quality of Service (QoS) support for the dominating multimedia traffic in the contemporary computer networks is achieved by implementing schedulers in the routers and deploying traffic shapers. To this end, realistic modeling and simulation of these components is essential for network performance evaluation. The first contribution of this thesis is the design and implementation of a C++ simulator QueST (Quality of Service simulaTor) for this task. QueST is a modular cycle accurate simulator w...
Frame-counter scheduler: A novel QoS scheduler for real-time traffic
Schmidt, Şenan Ece (Elsevier BV, 2006-08-04)
Real-time traffic communication has Quality of Service (QoS) requirements such as end-to-end bandwidth and delay guarantees.
Improving performance of network intrusion detection systems through concurrent mechanisms
Atakan, Mustafa; Şener, Cevat; Department of Computer Engineering (2003)
As the bandwidth of present networks gets larger than the past, the demand of Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) that function in real time becomes the major requirement for high-speed networks. If these systems are not fast enough to process all network traffic passing, some malicious security violations may take role using this drawback. In order to make that kind of applications schedulable, some concurrency mechanism is introduced to the general flowchart of their algorithm. The principal aim is...
Analysis of the pantograph arcing and its effects on the railway vehicle
Baysal, Dilek; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Erdem, Oğuzhan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Virtual router is an essential solution to fulfill the increasing demands of network services. A virtual router, having a single hardware platform, serves several networks concurrently and hence provides cost saving. A virtual router maintains multiple forwarding tables that belong to separate internet service providers (ISPs) and performs IP lookup and forwarding functionality for each ISP in one common platform. IP lookup in a virtual router is performed by inspecting the incoming packets that also carry ...
