    Network Model Diversity for Wireless Studies

    Wireless network is one of interesting research domain. Many studies have been conducted related to security and network performance issue. There are two methods to represent a conducting study either based on test bed or simulation in order to access the real network environment. With a suitable network model selection,...

    Understanding Farmers Information Communication Strategies for Managing Climate Risks in Rural Semi-Arid Areas, Tanzania

    Crop production risk caused by climate variability cannot be managed in the absence of climate information. Despite the use of various communication strategies by rural communities in Tanzania, access and use of agricultural information is inadequate to cope with challenges in crop production. This study aims at assessing farmers information...

    Broadband Assessment Index: A Framework and Composite Metric for Measuring Broadband in Developing Countries

    This paper presents a framework, and a composite broadband metric, the Broadband Assessment Index (BAI) that scores the state of broadband of a developing country based on three sub-indices namely, Broadband Readiness (BR), Broadband Intensity (BI), and Broadband Adoption (BA), respectively across 13 constructs. The 13 constructs were found to...

    Evaluating Factors Affecting Broadband Adoption in Kenya

    Recent research points to the appalling broadband penetration rates in developing countries, more so in Africa where individual broadband penetration rates are below two per cent. An understanding of the factors affecting broadband adoption in these countries is key to any strategy to improve broadband penetration figures. The deployment and...

    Evaluating Factors Affecting Broadband Intensity in Kenya

    The term "Broadband intensity" emerged nearly a decade ago from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) as one the domains for the assessment of broadband markets. The other two domains were broadband "Odoption" and "Impact", respectively. OECD then defined broadband intensity to include the "Nature, value and volume...

    Scalable Knock Authentication Mechanism (SKAM) for Addressing TCP Vulnerabilities

    Scanning TCP and UDP connections for finding susceptible hosts is one of the most popular techniques used by malicious cyber criminals and hackers to discover and map services that are listening on a specified port. Using this method an attacker can create a list of potential weaknesses and vulnerabilities in...

    Assessment of First Comer Advantages and Network Effects; The Case of Turkish GSM Market

    First comer advantages and network effects are frequently stated as among the most important determinants of market structures and this is particularly relevant for network economies including telecommunications markets. Connected to this, regulatory tools such as number portability have frequently been used to reduce market imperfections resulting from these effects....

    Resilient Network Coding for Wireless Sensor Networks

    The authors propose Relinc, a security architecture that is built on top of Random Key Pre-distribution (RKP), and that uses K-generic random linear network coding as the coding scheme. Through simulations, they show that Relinc is more resilient than RKP by itself. For example, when 1 out of 100 nodes...
