    Enabling Information Interoperability in the Future Internet: Beyond of a SOA Design Requirement

    The Future Internet is currently seen as an opportunity to improve the network infrastructure addressing service-oriented requirements, social trends and economic commitments. Future Internet and next generation communications systems challenges mainly demand end user requirements, personalized provisioning, service-oriented performance, service-awareness networking, information interoperability and data models integration. This paper focuses...

    Long Term Orientation And Relationship Strength: How Time-Dependent Are Strong Relationships?

    This paper develops a set of propositions about the nature of the link between the long term orientation of a relationship and its strength. Its overall argument is that the importance of time-based explanations of cooperation decline when the relationship is at high strength cooperation. To evidence this argument the...

    New Role of Policy-Based Management in Home Area Networks - Concepts, Constraints and Challenges

    The management of Home Area Networks (HANs) is problematic. On the one hand there are increasing numbers of IP enabled devices that are connecting to the HAN (Wired and Wirelessly), some of which need to be managed, especially in terms of granting external access to certain services running on certain...

    Gradient Based Routing Support for Cooperative Multi-Channel MAC in Ad Hoc Wireless Networks

    Growing popularity of wireless ad hoc networks leads to higher demands on performance of all TCP/IP stack layers. Usually ad hoc networks operate according to IEEE 802.11 standard which provides a MAC layer protocol that uses a single channel for data transmissions. However, increasing the number of data channels on...

    A Comparison of Different TCP/IP and DTN Protocols Over the D-Star Digital Data Mode

    This paper examines the performance of the Digital Smart Technologies for Amateur Radio-Digital Data mode with various IP and non-IP based protocols. A throughput comparison was performed between IPv4, IPv6, the DTN Convergence Layer and the NORM Convergence Layer. The experimental results show that the DTN NORM Convergence Layer exhibits...

    Adaptive Dynamic Routing Supporting Service Management for Future Internet

    There is currently much debate in defining what form the Future Internet will take. The current Internet is struggling to meet the needs of an ever-evolving society. This is largely due to the Internet now become a thriving marketplace with services at the core. The range, number and complexity of...

    Towards the Development of an Autonomic Network Management Architecture

    The current Internet did not define any inherent management constructs and mechanisms; such concepts were added after networking standards and architectures were constructed. This also influenced network management for other types of networks. This paper is the first in a series that explores concepts for a new-autonomic approach to network...

    Securing Mobile Services

    With e-Government applications, such as public information services that allow e-Citizens to request message reminders about hospital services, national car test examinations and driving test examinations, being extended onto the mobile platform, there are new challenges to securing these services. The reliability of operations and reduction in the vulnerability of...

    Parameterised Gradient Based Routing (PGBR) for Future Internet

    The current internet infrastructure is facing a number of limitations that is not suitable to meet the growing number of services and users. In particular, one aspect that requires enhancement is routing, where original routing concepts were designed for static traffic patterns with minimal variations and supporting mainly low throughput...

    Avoiding Redundant Channel Blocking in Cooperative Multi-Channel MAC Protocols Through Virtual Topology Inferencing

    The mechanism of channel allocation used in the Medium Access Control (MAC) sub-layer for wireless devices in IEEE 802.11 standard is through a single MAC channel. The drawback with the single channel solution is when the number of nodes increases, the throughput is also reduced. However, using multiple channels solves...

    Self-Sustaining Composed Service Groups for Future Internet

    The Future Internet will witness a transformation towards service centric communication systems that will closely support the user's requirements. It is anticipated that these services will not only include web services but also multimedia based services, where each service will be developed to focus on certain core functionalities. In order...
