On qos multicast routing protocols

Bereketli, Alper
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 for QoS routing protocols is investigated. QoS multicast routing protocols are classified and compared according to their multicast tree construction and resource reservation approaches. Two QoS protocols, QROUTE and QMBF, are selected, and their performances are experimentally compared using the network simulation tool Network Simulator-2 (ns-2). The objective of the simulations is to compare the QoS routing algorithms and their tree construction efficiencies. The first contribution of the thesis is the survey and classification of traditional and QoS multicast routing protocols. Another contribution is the ns-2 implementation of two QoS multicast routing protocols. The final contribution of the thesis is the performance evaluation of the recent protocols from a different perspective.


Optimization of doppler processing by using bank of matched filters
Aktop, Onur; Tanık, Yalçın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In radars, matched filters are used in the receiver of the system. Since the target velocity is not known a priori, degradation occurs due to mismatch of the return signal and the matched filter. The performance of the radar can be improved by using a bank of matched filters. The first topic investigated in this work is optimization of the bank of matched filter structure. Two methods are proposed for the design of the parallel filter structure and computations are performed with both methods. The output si...
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...
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...
Mutual coupling calibration of antenna arrays for direction-of-arrival estimation
Aksoy, Taylan; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
An antenna array is an indispensable portion of a direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation operation. A number of error sources in the arrays degrade the DOA estimation accuracy. Mutual coupling effect is one of the main error sources and should be corrected for any antenna array. In this thesis, a system theoretic approach is presented for mutual coupling characterization of antenna arrays. In this approach, the idea is to model the mutual coupling effect through a simple linear transformation between the mea...
Investigation of gmpls applications in optical systems
Göken, Burcu; Ergül, Rüyal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this study, possible applications of label switching in large area, fully optical networks are investigated. The objective was to design a label assignment method by using Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) concept to get an efficient optical network operation. In order to fulfill this objective, two new approaches were proposed: a label assignment method and a concatenated label structure. Label assignment method was designed to provide an efficient utilization of resources. Concatenated...
