    Constant Frame Quality Control for H.264/AVC

    A frame quality control mechanism for H.264/AVC is proposed in this research. The research objective is to ensure that a suitable Quantization Parameter (QP) can be assigned to each frame so that the target frame quality can be achieved. One application is consistently maintaining the frame quality during the encoding...

    Applying SIP B2BUA for Mobile WIMAX Network Architecture

    This paper proposes a novel mobility integration method and heuristic algorithm in WiMax network. The objective of the method focuses on cooperation of the ASN anchored mobility and SIP mobility and uses the B2BUA concept to improve the handoff performance as well as to reduce the handoff dropping rate. As...

    ERP Misfit: A Multidimensional Concept and Misfit Resolution

    An essential problem in adopting an ERP system is to resolve misfits at each stage of the ERP experience cycle. In this paper, a multidimensional definition of ERP misfit is proposed to analyze misfit incidents and to examine how they were remedied at a Taiwanese manufacturer (CrystalCom). The authors conceptualize...

    Improving SCTP Performance by Jitter-Based Congestion Control over Wired-Wireless Networks

    With the advances of wireless communication technologies, wireless networks gradually become the most adopted communication networks in the new generation Internet. Computing devices and mobile devices may be equipped with multiple wired and/or wireless network interfaces. Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) has been proposed for reliable data transport and its...

    Using Agent to Coordinate Web Services

    Traditionally, agent and web service are two separate research areas. The authors figure that, through agent communication, agent is suitable to coordinate web services. However, there exist agent communication problems due to the lack of uniform, cross-platform vocabulary. Fortunately, ontology defines a vocabulary. They thus propose a new agent communication...

    Spatial Publish Subscribe

    Publish / subscribe is a well-known mechanism that allows entities interested in certain information (i.e., the subscribers) to receive relevant messages from some message generators (i.e., the publishers). The authors argue that for networked or distributed Virtual Environment (VE) applications, a Spatial Publish / Subscribe (SPS), where each entity can...

    Approach to Learning Research With Wireless Sensor Networks in an Outdoor Setting

    Automated collection of environmental data may be accomplished with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In this paper, a general discussion of WSNs is given for the gathering of data for educational research. WSNs enhance the scope of a researcher to include multiple streams of data: environmental, cyberdata, video, and RFID. A...

    ERP Systems Success: An Integration of IS Success Model and Balanced Scorecard

    This paper presents a re-specification to the DeLone and McLean IS success model and empirically examines it in the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) context. Five IS success constructs and a balanced scorecard were used to predict ERP systems success. The theoretical model was tested using a survey of 257 companies...
