    Design Guidelines for Geocast Protocols in Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks

    Geocasting represents today a challenging field of research due to the numerous application scenarios offered by ad hoc and sensor networks. Recently, in the literature, some geocast routing protocols have been proposed, most of which are basically inherited from unicast routing solutions and consequently are not optimized for geocast applications....

    An Analytical Model of a BitTorrent Peer

    In the last years Peer-To-Peer (P2P) applications are emerging as potentially important structures for information, content management and distribution. The most popular P2P application in the Internet today is file sharing, which was initially popularized by the Napster system. One of the most used P2P network today allowing file sharing...

    Characterization of PLC Communication Channel: A Networking Perspective

    PowerLine Communications (PLC) is experiencing a tremendous success and is expected to play a primary role in home networking scenarios. Nevertheless, little research effort has been devoted so far to the large number of networking problems occurring in PLC scenarios. Objective of this paper is to characterize PLC channel from...

    End-to-End Delay and Network Lifetime Analysis in a Wireless Sensor Network Performing Data Aggregation

    Data aggregation is a promising approach for reducing energy consumption and relaying of redundant data in wireless sensor networks for monitoring applications. However data aggregation implies, on the one hand, an increase in network processing at certain nodes, referred to as aggregators, possibly leading to a higher delivery delay to...
