Mobile government in Turkey : investigating critical success factors, drivers and barriers

Üstün, Anıl
The number of mobile phone users in Turkey has already exceeded the number of households with the internet access. The presence of technologies which allowed more bandwidth and access from almost everywhere such as UMTS, Wi-Fi, or Wi-Max is putting a pressure on governments to enter into a new direction: m-government. As mobile phone penetration increases, its presence in the public sector is increasingly being viewed as inevitable. In this thesis, a strategic action plan model for the developing countries to achieve success in the development of m-government will be constructed. Meanwhile, critical success factors for Turkey are to be identified by a comparison of selected country cases. Moreoever, drivers and barriers for mobile government in Turkey and the affects of the demographic factors are examined by using the One-Way ANOVA and Pearson Chi-Square tests.


A novel method for the detection of P2P traffic in the network backbone inspired by intrusion detection systems
Soysal, Murat; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
The share of peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol in the total network traffic grows dayby- day in the Turkish Academic Network (UlakNet) similar to the other networks in the world. This growth is mostly because of the popularity of the shared content and the great enhancement in the P2P protocol since it first came out with Napster. The shared files are generally both large and copyrighted. Motivated by the problems of UlakNet with the P2P traffic, we propose a novel method for P2P traffic detection in the network ...
Mobile network traffic modelling
Çakmak, Yadigar; Bilgen, Semih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the traffic patterns in the mobile data networks. In this work, a simple Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) network was modeled in order to be used in simulations. For the purpose of using in the CDPD model, a synthetic bursty traffic model was produced and using different traffic patterns some performance investigations were made in CDPD network. During the whole work, OPNET simulation tool was used. The CDPD network modeled by OPNET simulation tool was compared wi...
ARC: The analytical rate control scheme for real-time traffic in wireless networks
Akan, OB; Akyildiz, IF (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2004-08-01)
Next-generation wireless Internet (NGWI) is expected to provide a wide range of services including real-time multimedia to mobile users. However, the real-time multimedia traffic transport requires rate control deployment to protect shared Internet from unfairness and further congestion collapse. The transmission rate control method must also achieve high throughput and satisfy multimedia requirements such a delay or jitter bound. However, the existing solutions are mostly for the wired Internet, and hence,...
Positioning based on tracking of signal parameters in a single base station wimax network using fingerprinting
Köksal, Murat Miran; Genç, Fethi Payidar; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
IEEE 802.16 is a point to multipoint broadband wireless access standard, designed from ground up for fast and reliable mobile networking. Several location-related MAC layer fields specified in the standard indicate that WiMAX networks can be convenient backbones for future positioning systems. Information encapsulated in MAC headers is especially important for single base station positioning systems which require fewer network resources than multiple reference station location systems, but need more locatio...
Energy- aware task scheduling over mobile ad hoc networks
Bokar, Ali; Bozyiğit, Müslim; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) can be formed dynamically without the support of any existing infrastructure or any centralized administration. They consist of heterogeneous mobile nodes which are powered by batteries, move arbitrarily and are connected by wireless links. Battery energy limitation is one of the main challenges in the MANETs. Several hardware and software based techniques have been proposed in this field. Most of the previous studies have considered only the energy minimization of individual...
