    A Framework for Security-Enhanced Peer-to-Peer Applications in Mobile Cellular Networks

    Due to the dual trends of increasing cellular network transmission capacity and coverage as well as improving computational capacity, storage and intelligence of mobile handsets, Mobile Peer-To-Peer (MP2P) networking is emerging an attractive research field in recent years. However, these trends have not been clearly articulated in perspective of both...

    A Branch and Price Approach for Optimal Regenerator Placement in Translucent Networks

    In a translucent optical network, the optical signal is regenerated at selected nodes of the network, before the signal quality degrades below a threshold. Given the optical reach, to minimize the network cost, the goal of the regenerator placement problem is to find the minimum number of regenerators necessary in...

    Feedback Based Real-Time MAC (RT-MAC) Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks

    In this paper, the authors present a MAC layer protocol, called RTMAC, for real-time data streaming in Wireless Sensor Networks. RT-MAC eliminates need to contend for a wireless medium by potential transmitting nodes in a range by introducing feedback control packet, called Clear Channel (CC). RT-MAC maximizes spatial channel reuse...

    Drivers and Barriers to Business Intelligence Adoption: A Case of Pakistan

    This paper deals with the Drivers and Barriers to Business Intelligence Adoption. The Drivers and Barrier Methodology (DBM) is a useful tool for measuring how a particular technology such as Business Intelligence (BI) brings tangible benefits to a business enterprise such as a Consumer Bank or Telecommunications Company. This research...

    Timed Transition Discovery From Web Service Conversation Logs

    Web service business protocols are of importance to both clients and providers, as they model the external behaviour of services. However, the business protocol is not always published together with the service interface, and this hinders automatic management. When conversation logs are available, a solution is to discover the business...
