    How to Prolong Network Life-Span in Wireless Networks

    One of the most important problems in wireless sensor network is to develop a routing protocol that has energy efficiency. Since the power of the sensor Nodes are limited, conserving energy and network life is a critical issue in wireless sensor network. Clustering is one of the known methods widely...

    802.11a or HiperLAN2: Which Technology Will Emerge as the 5 GHz WLAN Standard?

    Wireless networks are becoming increasingly common in homes and businesses alike. Buyers have realized the convenience that cordless networks offer. Prices have plummeted recently opening up the market to practically everyone. Currently, the first generation of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) technology is here. It consists mainly of 2 protocols:...

    Enhanced Server Fault Tolerance for Improved User Experience

    Interactive applications such as email, calendar, and maps are migrating from local desktop machines to data centers due to the many advantages offered by such a computing environment. Furthermore, this trend is creating a marked increase in the deployment of servers at data centers. To ride the price/performance curves for...

    Wireless Networking Optimizations for Studying Algorithm Interactions

    Wireless networking optimizations are typically designed and evaluated independently of one another under the assumption that they can later be applied jointly. These works, however, do not provide sufficient information for future researchers and network administrators to determine which algorithms to combine, what order to combine them in, and how...

    The Design, Implementation and Performance Evaluation of Xylophone: A Scalable QoS-Enabled WiFi Locator Service

    WiFi access points that provide Internet access to users have been steadily increasing in urban areas. Different access points different from one another in terms of services that they provide, including available upstream and downstream bandwidths, overall network capacity, open/blocked ports, security features, and so on. However, there is no...

    Globalization And Investment In Human Capital

    Workers are becoming increasingly concerned about the impact that globalization has on their domestic labor market. While existing research typically focuses on the effects on labor market outcomes such as wages and employment, the authors examine whether American workers respond to globalization by increasing their investment in human capital. Specifically,...

    Secure and Robust Loose Time Synchronization Mechanism for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Time synchronization is required by many Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) applications such as localization, data ag-gregtion, and cooperative target tracking. In addition, the secure sensor network protocols, such as ?TESLA, also require that the sensor nodes are loosely time synchronized. Although many accurate and light-weight time synchornization protocols have been...

    ARBOR: Hang Together Rather Than Hang Separately in 802.11 WiFi Networks

    With 802.11 WiFi networks becoming popular in homes, it is common for an end-user to have access to multiple WiFi Access Points (APs) from residents next door. In general, wireless networks have much higher bandwidth than residential Internet (DSL or Cable) connections. This provides an incentive for an end-user to...

    Secure SocialAware: A Security Framework for Mobile Social Networking Applications

    Social network information is now being used in ways for which it may have not been originally intended. In particular, increased use of smartphones capable of running applications which access social network information enable applications to be aware of a user's position and preferences. However, current models for exchange of...

    X-Layer: An Experimental Implementation of a Cross-Layer Network Protocol Stack for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Cross-layer design of network protocol stacks is important for wireless networking applications due to limited resources. Although much has been proposed in the literature, little experimental cross-layer work has been done. Even less has been done concerning actual designs for such cross-layer network stacks. This paper presents X-Layer, an implementation...
