    Distributed Multiple Relay Selection by an Auction Mechanism

    In this paper, the authors study distributed relay selection methods assuming a dual-hop Decode-and-Forward (DF) relaying protocol. They assume UpLink (UL) phase in a cellular network where multiple source nodes seek the assistance of candidate relay nodes for message delivery. Due to complexity considerations, they consider that each relay node...

    Enabling Green Networking With a Power Down Approach

    The most straightforward way to reduce network power consumption is to turn off idle links and nodes (switches/routers), which the authors call the power down approach. In a wired network, especially in a backbone network, many links are actually "Bundles" of multiple physical cables and line cards that can be...

    Simple and Effective Routing and Wavelength Assignment in Transparent Optical Networks

    Transparent optical networks must support dynamic traffic demands and end-to-end optical transmission. The authors present a new physically-aware algorithm based on dynamic programming for routing and wavelength assignment in such networks that considers both linear and nonlinear impairments that accumulated along the transmission path. They show that their algorithm scales...

    An Efficient, Dynamic Algorithm for Routing in Transparent Physically Aware Optical Networks

    Current RWA algorithms are unable to meet the needs of future transparent optical networks, with dynamic traffic demands and end-to-end optical transmission. Current algorithms yield a high level of blocking, do not scale well to large networks, and do not consider nonlinear impairments. Authors present a new algorithm based upon...

    A Distributed Impairment Aware QoS Framework for All-Optical Networks

    Different physical impairments can occur in optical transmission systems. Impairments such as fiber nonlinear effects are dependent on network state and vary with traffic and topology changes. In all-optical networks, impairments can accumulate along a lightpath and cause significant signal degradation. It is important to consider these impairments and the...

    Routing Protocols for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks in Rural Areas

    Research on vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) has focused mainly on efficient routing protocol design under conditions where there are relatively large numbers of closely spaced vehicles. These routing protocols are designed principally for urban areas with high node density, fully connected networks, and are not suitable for packet delivery...
