Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardizes the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) to improve the quality of service in modern communication systems using 3GPP LTE-advanced (LTE-A) networks. As this technology is converging with modern devices, efficient resource allocation schemes are essential for minimization of the communication delay for the sensitive real-time devices. To achieve the demands of latest technologies, this paper proposes two novel mechanisms, enhanced real-time polling system with continuous time-batch Markovian arrival process and proactive resource allocation framework. The objective of the former mechanism is to improvise the service connectivity between the multimedia devices in LTE-A networks and the latter is to exploit the transmission bits in each user's buffer in addition to the state information of wireless channel. The proposed mechanisms consider the constraints enforced by 3GPP standard in terms of radio resource blocks allocation for LTE-A networks. In addition, the proposed mechanisms use LTE-A networks to investigate the Voice over LTE traffic in order to analyze various quality-of-service measures, namely, sum throughput, session setup delay, packet delivery ratio, resource utilization ratio, and throughput improvement via real-time multimedia client-server systems. The probing results show that the proposed algorithm is superior in comparison to other typical services of IEEE 802.16d/e-based systems as well as LTE-A system with 7 orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing symbols over a duration slot better throughput performance in comparison with existing mechanisms.


Geo-social recommendations based on incremental tensor reduction and local path traversal

Social networks have evolved with the combination of geographical data, into Geo-social networks (GSNs). GSNs give users the opportunity, not only to communicate with each other, but also to share images, videos, locations, and activities. The latest developments in GSNs incorporate the usage of location tracking services, such as GPS to allow users to “check in” at various locations and record their experience. In particular, users submit ratings or personal comments for their location/activity. The vast a...
Analysis of industry 4.0 technologies’ adoption using interpretive structural modelling: empirical findings from manufacturing sector in Turkey
Öztürk, Ömer; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2023-1)
Emerging disruptive technologies, especially big data, the internet of things (IoT), cloud, cyber-physical systems, and 3D printing technologies, led to the emergence of a new industrial era called industry 4.0. The concept of industry 4.0, which emerged at the technology fair held in Germany in 2011, has established its foundations on increasing productivity in the industry and the digitalization of systems. Although industry 4.0 technologies have various benefits for the manufacturing sector, various diff...

Yamaç, Abdullah Ömer; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
The evolution of the Internet of things and information communication services introduces new demands in the 5G area. New types of services and use cases such as massive machine-type communication applications, enhanced mobile broadband and ultra-reliable low-latency services will be created in the coming years. These new services and applications will significantly increase energy consumption. In this thesis, we propose a solution for dynamically configuring the radio access technology by employing cloud r...
A Survey on Multipath Routing Protocols for QoS Assurances in Real-Time Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks
Hasan, Mohammed Zaki; Al-Rizzo, Hussain; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2017-01-01)
The vision of wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSNs) is to provide real-time multimedia applications using wireless sensors deployed for long-term usage. Quality of service assurances for both best effort data and real-time multimedia applications introduced new challenges in prioritizing multipath routing protocols in WMSNs. Multipath routing approaches with multiple constraints have received considerable research interest. In this paper, a comprehensive survey of both best effort data and real-time m...
Network density estimators and density-aware wireless networks
Eroğlu, Alperen; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2020-11)
New network architectures and communication technologies continue to emerge to meet rapidly increasing and changing user demands requiring continuous connectivity and high data rate transmissions. These ubiquitous infrastructures result in a paradigm shift in mobile communications with the advent of mobile robots equipped with sensors, unmanned aerial vehicles, and mobile small-cells, which makes the future networks highly dynamic. This dynamism poses unpredictable variations in the network density causing ...
