Congestion control for the available bit rate (abr) service in asychronous transfer mode (atm) networks

Özzaman, Hülya Bozkurt
Congestion control is concerned with allocating the resources in a network such that the network can operate at an acceptable performance level when the demand exceeds or is near the capacity of the network resources. These resources include bandwidths of links, buffer space (memory) and processing capacity at intermediate nodes. Although resource allocation is necessary even at low load, the problem becomes more important as the load increases. Without proper congestion control mechanisms, the throughput may be reduced considerably under heavy load. Future applications are expected to require increasingly higher bandwidth and generate a heterogeneous mix of network traffic. ATM network is potentially capable of supporting all classes of traffic (e.g., voice, video, and data) and have multiple service classes allow audio, video and data to share the same network. Of these, the Available Bit Rate (ABR) service class is designed to efficiently support data traffic. Switch algorithms have been the most investigated topic of ABR. This has happened because the specification of ABR given by the ATM Forum allows a diversity of switch algorithms to be implemented. These range from the simplest binary switches to the more complex ER switches. The major part of this thesis has been devoted to ABR. First an introduction to the concept of congestion control and a brief literature survey of congestion control for ABR service of ATM networks are presented. Then two proposed congestion control mechanisms for the ABR service class in ATM networks are examined by means of simulation, showing the different degree of performance and complexity. The simulation results presented in this thesis were obtained using a network simulator written in C++. This network simulator is a small event driven program. Analytical results were derived for different network configurations and different


Multi-layer network design problems in telecommunication
Yüksel Ergün, İnci; Kırca, Ömer; Süral, Haldun; Department of Industrial Engineering (2013)
The telecommunication network design problem is to configure a telecommunication network of major hardware and their links in order to satisfy traffic demands and flows subject to a set of constraints arising from topology, capacity, and technology. Telecommunication network design has been studied in several disciplines and its literature is intricate. In this study, we classify the telecommunication network design problems in the literature from the perspective of operations research and review the networ...
MMSE based iterative turbo equalization for antenna switching sytems
Yıldırım, Recep Ali; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, we study the performance of an antenna switching (AS) system in comparison to an Alamouti coded system. We analyze the outage probabilities and propose minimum mean-squared error based iterative equalizers for both systems. We see from the outage probability analysis of both systems that the AS system may achieve the same diversity order of the Alamouti coded scheme contingent on the transmission rate and constellation size. In the proposed receiver, MMSE equalization and channel decoding ar...
On qos multicast routing protocols
Bereketli, Alper; Bazlamaçcı, Cüneyt Fehmi; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
Multicasting is a technique used for distributing data packets from one or more sources to a set of receivers on interconnected networks. Currently developing network applications bring specific quality of service (QoS) requirements like bounded delay, minimum bandwidth, and maximum data loss rate. Providing the required quality of service addresses routing and resource reservation concepts. In this study, a literature survey is carried out on traditional and QoS multicast routing protocols, and the need fo...
Implementation of stanag 428 hf modem software on tms320c54x digital signal processor
Örümlü, Erhan; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this research, STANAG 4285 HF modem software is implemented on TMS320C54x fixed point digital signal processor. The software is optimized in order to meet real-time operation requirements. A fractionally spaced least mean square (LMS) decision feedback equalizer (DFE) is employed for the receiver. In order to improve the convergence of the LMS algorithm a multipass technique is utilized. Based on Watterson̕s model, an HF channel simulator is employed for evaluating the performance of the modem. The simul...
Multiple window detectors
Sipahigil, Oktay; Çiloğlu, Tolga; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2010)
Energy or DFT detector using a fixed window size is very efficient when signal start time and duration is matched with that of the window's. However, in the case of unknown signal duration, the performance of this detector decreases. For this scenario, a detector system composed of multiple windows may be preferred. Window sizes of such a system will also be fixed beforehand but they will be different from each other. Therefore, one of the windows will better match the signal duration, giving better detecti...
