A study of Kangaroo Transaction model for mobile transaction management

Örenç, Zülfü
Wireless network technology has advanced to the point that it is possible to use Internet connectivity to perform job tasks while moving in a city. We simulate and experimentally evaluate Dunham̕s Kangaroo Transaction (KT) model, and a modified version of it. Our results show that the modified-KT model does not have much communication overhead (although more than the original KT model) and it is more resilient to failures of base stations.


Developing jxta applications for mobile devices and invoking web services deployed in jxta platform from mobile devices
Bahadır, Mesut; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Today, Peer-to-peer (P2P) computing and Web Services play an important role in networking and computing. P2P computing, that aims addressing all the resources in a network and sharing them, is an old paradigm that gains importance nowadays with the advent of popular file sharing and instant messaging applications. On the other hand, a Web service is a software system that has an interface allowing applications to interact with other applications through Internet or intranet. Providing methods for publishing...
Flow initiation in software defined networking
Soltani, Ahmad; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Information Systems (2014)
With today’s technology requirements, computer networks and specifically the Internet is being expected to provide mobile, distributed and constantly changing services to its users. Forwarding middle boxes used in the industry nowadays are configured to have their low-level switching operations (e.g. packet handling), tightly coupled to their high-level control definitions and algorithms. This fact has contributed in slowing down the innovation in computer networks. Software Defined Networking has recently ...
Analysis of the pantograph arcing and its effects on the railway vehicle

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 ...
An Investigation of Link Quality Assessment for Mobile Multi-hop and Multi-rate Wireless Networks
Zhou, Jinglong; Jacobsson, Martin; Onur, Ertan; Niemegeers, Ignas (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-07-01)
Wireless ad hoc networks will be an important component in future communication systems. The performance of wireless ad hoc networks can be improved by link quality-aware applications. Wireless link quality is dynamic in nature, especially in mobile scenarios. Therefore, accurate and fast packet delivery ratio estimation is a prerequisite to good performance in mobile, multi-hop and multi-rate wireless ad hoc networks. In this paper, we propose a novel packet delivery ratio estimation method that improves t...
On the performance, availability and energy consumption modelling of clustered IoT systems
Ever, Enver; Shah, Purav; Mostarda, Leonardo; Omondi, Fredrick; Gemikonakli, Orhan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-12-01)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) form a large part of the ecosystem of the Internet of Things (IoT), hence they have numerous application domains with varying performance and availability requirements. Limited resources that include processing capability, queue capacity, and available energy in addition to frequent node and link failures degrade the performance and availability of these networks. In an attempt to efficiently utilise the limited resources and to maintain the reliable network with efficient da...
