    On Routing IP Traffic Using Single- and Multi-Objective Genetic Optimization

    The authors formulate the routing of traffic in emerging IP networks as both single and multi-objective optimization problems which are solved using classical and hybrid genetic optimization. They adopt the occurrence of links in the computed paths as a cost function used to achieve load balancing by reducing the interference...

    Ethics in Global Perspective: An Inseparable Element of Entrepreneurship

    The word 'Entrepreneurship' starts with \"E\" which stands for Ethics. There is an inseparable connectivity between Ethics and Entrepreneurship. It is only recently that Ethics have become almost a public issue and have started getting favorable responses from the corporations, government agencies, shareholders, employees, suppliers, customers, competitors, the news media...

    SME's and Their Changing Role in Indian Economy

    SMEs have certain advantages over large firms in terms of flexibility, speed of decision making, proximity to customers, etc. In exploiting these advantages, SMEs make input factors available at higher quality or lower price, or create innovations on which consumer or other product downstream in the value chain may build....

    Band-Pass Filters And Business Cycle Analysis: Highfrequency And Medium-Term Deviation Cycles In South Africa And What They Measure

    Many analysts use band-pass filters to remove so-called permanent components from output and then study the remainder, which is then termed the "business cycle". Building on the critique of these deviation cycles by Harding and Pagan and on the recent work on the medium term persistence of business cycles by...

    Visualizing and Managing Cloud Computing Networks

    This paper describes the methods used to visualize and identify possible problems within a cloud computing network. A technique, rendering the entire cloud network in Hyperbolic space, for visualizing the physical layout of the network is discussed. Issues concerning scalability with regards to effectively identifying problems within the cloud are...

    Implications Of The Financial Crisis For Models In Monetary Policy

    Monetary authorities have been implicated in the financial crisis of 2007-2008. John Muellbauer, for example, has blamed what he thought was initially inadequate policy responses by central banks to the crisis on their models, which are, in his words, "Overdue for the scrap heap." This paper investigates the role of...

    Modeling Collaborative Motion in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

    A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a wireless network formed by a set of mobile nodes in a self-organising way without relying on any established infrastructure. All nodes in a MANET are potentially mobile and can be connected dynamically in an arbitrary manner. All nodes of these networks behave...

    A Scalable Network Monitoring and Bandwidth Throttling System for Cloud Computing

    With the increase in the demand for affordable, high capacity processing power, the use of Cloud Computing systems such as the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) has increased significantly. This also increases the potential for users to intentionally, to accidentally, abuse such systems. The authors present a scalable Network Bandwidth...

    Network Re-Engineering Using Successive Survivable Routing

    The Spare Capacity Assignment (SCA) problem is a constrained non-linear optimization problem which describes how to route backup paths and configure the network links with the least amount of backup capacity in order to be able to deploy equivalent failure-disjoint recovery paths. The Successive Survivable Routing heuristic provides a computationally...

    Design and Optimization of a Cluster Based Ad Hoc Wireless Network Routing Protocol

    Cluster based routing protocols has been shown to reduce routing information overhead at high node densities. This paper documents the design process of a cluster based routing protocol. A simulation was created to implement the protocol. It is shown how the cost to maintain the cluster structure, can be reduced...

    Predicting Low Earth Orbit Satellite Communications Quality and Visibility Over Time

    Low-earth-orbit satellite communication link margins vary greatly as the satellite moves in its orbit around the earth. A major design consideration that needs to be addressed for any satellite system is the choice of Forward-Error Correction code (FEC). The type of FEC and the optimal packet length are chosen so...

    Automated Traffic Class Prediction and Prioritization on 802.11 Using Machine Learning

    With the steady increase of Internet access rates (DSL, LTE, FTTH) and aging local access technologies (802.11) QoS problems are starting to manifest themselves on the inside of SOHo (Small Office/Home) networks. Bandwidth bottlenecks are slowly moving to the inside of the networks and the authors need a solution to...
