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.


An ideation method in design for iot: Creating object personas via sensor data
Tuna, Nur Nagihan; Hasdoğan, Gülay Fatma; Department of Industrial Design (2020-11-2)
Internet of things (IoT) introduced some challenges as well as many opportunities for designers. Enhanced capabilities of the things transformed them from being passive assistants of humans to active agents that can collect and act on data. On the one hand, the emergence of new and more capable ‘things’ constitutes challenges for designers. Most of the studies are technology-driven, and the unprecedented experiences that designers cannot envision might result in disappointing experiences for users. On ...

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 ...
Evaluation of priority dependent and time scheduled MAC layer protocols for ad-hoc networks
Erdeğer, İsmail; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
Ad-hoc networks have very unique features, such as dynamic topologies, relatively limited bandwidth and wireless signal propagation schemes, which present various challenges for wireless communication. In this thesis, control mechanisms for channel access scheduling and topology in ad-hoc networks are evaluated, which utilize the information from two-hop neighborhood to cope with the communication difficulties in ad-hoc networks. Channel assignment is one of the most important topics for ad-hoc networks. Ch...
