Cost and demand driven pricing model for internet services and application on Turkey's case

Alsan, Münir Murat
This thesis proposes a pricing model for Internet access services. Firstly, demand, pricing and costing practices in communications sector are briefly explored. Then a pricing model for the ADSL Internet access service by Türk Telekom is described. The model uses the demand and cost information of a specific service and price is assumed as the key input. The model tries to find the optimum level of prices that maximize the profits under certain constraints regarding the network and customer concerns. The model and its output are discussed in comparison with the international cases and the scope of the further study is addressed in line with the developments occurring in the broadband access market.


Deregulation in telecommunications sectors of Mexico and Turkey
Furat, Mina; Geray, Haluk; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2004)
National Telecommunications policies have been differentiated together with the extension of international trade, increasing importance of information in trade and the convergence of telecommunications, broadcasting and computing sectors. with the influence of these global factors, the subject of this thesis is the study of Mexican and Turkish national telecommunications policies regarding with the deregulation in telecommmunications service sector.
Cost of quality for crowdsourcing management /
İren, Deniz; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Information Systems (2014)
Crowdsourcing is a business model which allows practitioners to access a rather cheap and scalable workforce. However, due to loose worker-employer relationships, skill diversity of the crowd and anonymity of participants, it tends to result in lower quality compared to traditional way of doing work. Thus crowdsourcing practitioners use certain techniques to make sure the end product complies with the quality requirements. Each quality assurance technique used in crowdsourcing impacts the project cost and s...
Congestion control for the available bit rate (abr) service in asychronous transfer mode (atm) networks
Özzaman, Hülya Bozkurt; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
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 m...
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...
Resource management in callular communication networks with subscriber profile prediction
Yılmaz, Nusrat; Ergül, Rüyal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this study, a dynamic resource management and subscriber profile prediction scheme for mobile communication systems is presented. The aim is to achieve a high level of QoS for both handoff calls and new calls, while at the same time to improve the utilization of wireless network resources. The simultaneous satisfaction of these two actually conflicting interests will be thanks to two major key features. First, it will be due to the individual subscriber profile based prior information about handoff reser...
