Improving throughput by traffic aware routing in non-transparent ieee 802.16j networks

Tekdoğan, Rıdvan
WiMAX is one of the rising communications technology which enables last mile broadband mobile wireless Internet connectivity. IEEE Std 802.16-2009 is the last accepted standard which targets mobile and fixed wireless broadband access. The standard defines two types of stations which are base and mobile stations. A base station has a wired connection to backhaul network and gives broadband wireless service to mobile stations. IEEE 802.16j standard which is an amendment to IEEE 802.16, introduces Multihop Relaying for increasing coverage and throughput. Deployment of relay stations, where the backbone network does not exist, is a cost effective solution. Two modes of operations are defined for relay station: transparent mode and non-transparent mode. Relays in transparent mode, are deployed for improving signal quality, so that mobile stations can use relay link for increasing throughput. In non-transparent mode, relays can send management packets, so that mobile stations, which are not in the direct reach of a base station, can connect to network through relay stations. In domain specific networks main data traffic is caused by the communication between subscribers in same region. In this thesis shortcut routing scheme is proposed as sending packets to destination directly through relay station for data traffic between two subscribers with a common relay. With shortcut routing, network throughput is increased by preventing links at higher layer in topology from becoming bottleneck. Moreover, by traversing fewer hops, latency decreases. We also propose traffic aware path selection method, where a path will more.


Developing a zigbee wireless network and controlling it through the internet
Kaynar, Kerem; Özgit, Attila; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
The aim of this thesis is to develop a network, whose nodes communicate with the ZigBee wireless network protocol, and control this network with a PC through the Internet. One of the nodes of this network is designed to be master node. The other nodes are slave nodes. The master node can be connected to an Ethernet connected to the Internet. A PC can communicate with the master node via a specific web application over the Internet. The communication between a web server, in which the specific web applicatio...
Execution of distributed database queries on a HPC system
Önder, İbrahim Seçkin; Coşar, Ahmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Increasing performance of computers and ability to connect computers with high speed communication networks make distributed databases systems an attractive research area. In this study, we evaluate communication and data processing capabilities of a HPC machine. We calculate accurate cost formulas for high volume data communication between processing nodes and experimentally measure sorting times. A left deep query plan executer has been implemented and experimentally used for executing plans generated by ...
Mobile multi-access IP: a proposal for mobile multi-access management in future wireless IP networks
Altuntas, S; Baykal, Buyurman (Elsevier BV, 2005-03-15)
As the wireless networking technologies advance rapidly, providing mobile users with roaming freely in heterogeneous wireless access domains, the need for multi-access arises. This paper introduces the Mobile Multi-Access Management Architecture (MMA-IP) for IP-based future wireless networks. MMA-IP enables mobile users to utilize multiple access domains synchronously and to switch between different access domains. In order to handle multi-access operations, MMA-IP defines a new special mobility agent, call...
Quality of service aware dynamic admission control in ieee 802.16J non-transparent relay networks
Kılıç, Eda; Şener, Cevat; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
Today, telecommunication is improving rapidly. People are online anywhere anytime. Due to increasing demand in communication, wireless technologies are progressing quickly trying to provide more services in a wide range. In order to address mobility and connectivity requirements of users in wide areas, Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (Wimax) has been introduced as a forth generation telecommunication technology. Wimax, which is also called Metropolitan Area Network (MAN), is based on IEEE 80...
Modelling and analysis of vertical handover in highly mobile environments
Kirsal, Yonal; Ever, Enver; Koçyiğit, Altan; Gemikonakli, Orhan; Mapp, Glenford (2015-12-01)
Various types of wireless networks have been developed and deployed including 3G, WLAN, WiMAX, LTE and LTE Advanced. User connectivity and network performance can be improved using vertical handover techniques which involve switching between available networks in heterogeneous environments. In this respect, recently there has been an increased interest in the integration of cellular and WLAN systems. In this study, the integrated heterogeneous wireless systems are modelled using two-stage open queuing syste...
