Dynamic and context-based GIS interoperability to support infrastructure management in municipalities

Urban infrastructures, such as electricity and communication networks, laid and maintained by different companies, can be affected from each other's operations. Thus, there is a need to share the geospatial data and be able to infer the ramifications of a particular operation, which requires the effective interoperability of geographic information systems (GISs). This paper describes a solution taking into account the dynamic context in which essential services exist. The focus is on the semantic and behavioral changes of a GIS element when the context is changed. To explore this issue, an experimental system was implemented involving the GIS of two infrastructure companies. The models of both infrastructures were constructed as application ontologies that import upper-level ontologies. Context ontologies were used to model the maintenance and emergency situations. Guided by a rule base, responses to context changes were the key elements for the dynamic interoperation of GISs.

Dynamic resource allocation in virtualized networks for network slicing
Canpolat, Ceren; Güran Schmidt, Şenan Ece.; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
The developments of 5G wireless technology, enables serving to various vertical industries through sharing a common infrastructure. To this end, multi-tenancy support of these diverse industries are realized on virtualized networks with the help of network slicing. The introduction of sharing brings many challenges such as QoS satisfaction, fairness and performance isolation among slices. The diversity of these slices mainly lies in their data rate requests and user populations. The slices with high data ra...
Management of interdependent infrastructure networks under disaster-related uncertainties
Canbilen, Tuğçe; Batun, Sakine; Çelik, Melih; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020-8)
During a disaster, multiple infrastructures such as power, water, or telecommunications networks may face disruptions in their services. Services of these infrastructures are vital in the aftermath of a disaster to facilitate search-and-rescue activities, relief transportation, and restoration efforts. Furthermore, the operations of these infrastructures may depend on receiving services from others, resulting in an interdependent network structure. In the aftermath of a disaster, damages on the network segm...
Dynamic radio channel management in cellular mobile communication systems
Yilmaz, N; Ergul, R (2004-09-29)
We present a dynamic radio bandwidth management scheme for mobile communication systems to achieve a high level of QoS for both handoff calls and new calls, while at the same time to improve the utilization of wireless network resources. The simultaneous satisfaction of these two actually conflicting interests will be thanks to two major key features. First, due to the apriori information about handoff reservation requests that is provided by the mobile terminal. This information is based on the cell transi...
Dynamic Resource Management in Next Generation Networks based on Deep Q Learning
Aslan, Aysun; Bal Bozkurt, Gülce; Toker, Cenk (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE); 2021-1-07)
In next generation networks, with the increasing number of diverse mobile network service types, a major challenge lies in how to manage and support all mobile service users who have different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Network slicing term can be a solution to satisfy the heterogeneous network requests over a common physical infrastructure. Splitting the network into slices which have different properties (e.g., bandwidth requirements, delay tolerance, user density, etc.) allows to schedule and...
Varying Temperature Surface Reflection and its Effect on the Indoor Terahertz Wireless Communications
Şahin, Asaf Behzat; Altan, Hakan (2015-04-11)
Advances in the wireless cellular and network applications also necessitate increased traffic on the communications infrastructure. In order to overcome the capacity overload of the current spectral provisions, service providers are looking at higher frequencies. E and V bands of the millimetre wave spectrum are being utilized for mile range relay links, and higher frequency bands such as 220GHz and 340 GHz regions are being considered for indoor very high data rate applications [1]...
