Priority based multi-constrained quality of service routing in military applications

Araz, Bora
This thesis proposes a new algorithm for multi-constrained Quality of Service Optimal Path Routing in the context of military applications. The objective of our routing algorithm is to manage network traffic according to quality of service requirements of connection requests using military metrics. The algorithm is mainly based on communication priority. The QoS metrics such as bandwidth, delay and packet loss ratio are considered as basic metrics on path finding. If there is no suitable path for the request, some existing connections with lower priorities may be broken to make space for a higher priority level connection request. In this case, priority and bandwidth are used as decisive metrics in cost computation


Adoption and utilization of information systems in an emerging Turkish industrial rown : a case study on Gaziantep
Salihoğlu, Yasemin; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2003)
This thesis analyzes factors motivating and inhibiting the adoption of information systems in enterprises in Gaziantep by a scale generated on Rogers̕ theory of diffusion of innovation. These factors are grouped into four as administrative, technological, environmental, and organizational characteristics in the scale built. Structured interview method was used while collecting the data. It was interviewed with 20 firms, operating in various sectors in Gaziantep. Results of the study showed that, within the ...
Assessment of vulnerability to earthquake hazards using spatial multicriteria analysis : Odunpazarı, Eskişehir case study
Servi, Mehmet; Akyürek, Sevda Zuhal; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2004)
The aim of this thesis is to develop a GIS methodology to assess urban vulnerability to earthquake through a spatial analytical procedure in which vulnerability is taught of as a spatial decision problem. The main concepts within the framework is vulnerability assessment. In its typology, the defined technology is highly current, emergent and necessary for the local goverments. Considering the discussions on subsidiarity for local area services such a knowledge is hoped to prove the capacity of local goverm...
Process based information systems evaluation: Towards the attributes of "pRISE"
Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Bilgen, Semih (2007-10-31)
Purpose The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of undertaking a systemic view of information systems evaluation that augments the frequently reported prescriptive (cost/benefit) analysis approaches. Design/methodology/approach The paper adopts a qualitative case perspective and derives a framework for substantive information systems evaluation factors (PRISE). Three empirical formulations are considered and a comparison made to determine the content and context of the findings. Finding...
A genetic algorithm for TSP with backhauls based on conventional heuristics
Önder, İlter; Özdemirel, Nur Evin; Department of Information Systems (2007)
A genetic algorithm using conventional heuristics as operators is considered in this study for the traveling salesman problem with backhauls (TSPB). Properties of a crossover operator (Nearest Neighbor Crossover, NNX) based on the nearest neighbor heuristic and the idea of using more than two parents are investigated in a series of experiments. Different parent selection and replacement strategies and generation of multiple children are tried as well. Conventional improvement heuristics are also used as mut...
Analysis of electronic signature in Turkey from the legal and economic perspectives and the awareness level in the country
İskender, Gökhan; Koçyiğit, Altan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
As in the case of other information technologies, the best way of obtaining efficient results from electronic signature application is integrating it to the legal and economic systems and increasing the awareness level of technology in the society. This thesis performs the legal and economic analyses of electronic signature in Turkey and measures the awareness level in the society. The analyses performed in the thesis show that electronic signature is not legally established in Turkey even the legal base is...
