The problem of providing Quality of Service (QoS) in the Internet has been an extremely active area of research and various mechanisms have been proposed related to this subject. Developing network applications have requirements such as bounded delay, jitter, minimum bandwidth and maximum loss rate. There is also a need to support large bandwidth networks because of growing link speeds. Previous QoS efforts did not fully satisfy all these needs of future networks but more recent approaches aim to be both scalable and rich in the provision of guaranteed services. Consequently core-stateless systems received much attention in recent years because of their scalability in supporting per-flow QoS. The property of not maintaining any per-flow state in the core routers is known as being core-stateless. In this thesis study, the need for core-stateless network architectures is pointed out and a literature survey about these schemes is carried out. Core-Stateless Guaranteed Fair (CSGF) network architecture, which provides deterministic fairness guarantees in a work-conserving manner, is selected and evaluated. Simulation studies about stateful Virtual Clock (VC) algorithm and CSGF’s sub-protocols Core-Stateless Virtual Clock (CSVC), Core-Stateless Guaranteed Throughput (CSGT) and Core-Stateless Guaranteed Fairness (CSGF) are presented. Finally, the deficiencies in fairness of CSGF are demonstrated.

A new approach for the scalable intrusion detection in high-speed networks
Şahin, Ümit Burak; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
As the networks become faster and faster, the emerging requirement is to improve the performance of the Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) to keep up with the increased network throughput. In high speed networks, it is very difficult for the IDPS to process all the packets. Since the throughput of IDPS is not improved as fast as the throughput of the switches and routers, it is necessary to develop new detection techniques other than traditional techniques. In this thesis we propose a rule-ba...
Performance evaluation of flexray networks for in-vehicle communication
Demirci, Ali; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
The increasing use of electronic components in today’s automobiles demands more powerful in-vehicle network communication protocols. FlexRay protocol, which is expected be the de-facto standard in the near future, is a deterministic, fault tolerant and fast protocol designed for in vehicle communication. In the near future, safety critical X-by-Wire applications will be available in the automobiles and FlexRay networks can be used to provide communication for the Electronic Control Units (ECUs) that perform...
Performance analysis of a power aware routing protocol for ad hoc networks
Yazıcı, Mehmet Akif; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
In this thesis, performance of the Contribution Reward Routing Protocol with Shapley Value (CAP-SV), a power-aware routing protocol for ad hoc networking is analyzed. Literature study on ad hoc network routing and ower-awareness is given. The overhead induced by the extra packets of the redirection mechanism of CAP-SV is formulized and the factors affecting this overhead are discussed. Then, the power consumption of CAP-SV is analytically analized using a linear power consumption model. It is shown that CAP...
Performance evaluation of routing protocols in wireless ad hoc networks with service differentiation
Yılmaz, Semra; Koçyiğit, Altan; Erten, Murat; Department of Information Systems (2003)
An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the use of any fixed network infrastructure or centralized administration. Due to the limitations in the wireless environment, it may be necessary for one mobile host to enlist the aid of other hosts in forwarding a packet to its destination. In order to enable communication within the network, a routing protocol is needed to discover routes between nodes. The primary goal of ad hoc network routing pro...
Vision-based robot localization using artificial and natural landmarks
Arıcan, Zafer; Halıcı, Uğur; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In mobile robot applications, it is an important issue for a robot to know where it is. Accurate localization becomes crucial for navigation and map building applications because both route to follow and positions of the objects to be inserted into the map highly depend on the position of the robot in the environment. For localization, the robot uses the measurements that it takes by various devices such as laser rangefinders, sonars, odometry devices and vision. Generally these devices give the distances o...
