Despite its well-known advantages, per-flow fair queueing has not been deployed in the Internet mainly because of the common belief that such scheduling is not scalable. The objective of the present paper is to demonstrate using trace simulations and analytical evaluations that this belief is misguided. We show that although the number of flows <i>in(More)
. The time-varying capacity links, such as wireless links and power line communication (PLC) links, which are integrated to emergent connectivity devices of Home Networks (HNs) require QoS mechanisms to protect sensitive and critical HN flows. In this paper, we couple the “Iperf in lightweight TCP mode” probing technique (developed in a previous work to(More)
An enhanced flow-aware Internet is arguably a more effective means of ensuring adequate performance than implementing the complex standardized QoS architectures. This flow-aware network would provide flow-level performance guarantees for real time and data applications by implementing per-flow fair queueing and by limiting the impact of overload through(More)
— In this paper, we investigate architectural and practical issues related to the setup of a broadband home network solution. Our experience led us to the consideration of a hybrid, wireless and wired, Mesh-Network to enable high data rate service delivery everywhere in the home. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposal using a real experimental(More)
The growing complexity of home networks due to the proliferation of devices, services and connectivity technologies lead to an increase of the potential sources of problems, ranging from simple software bugs and connectivity disruptions, to the trickier issues of periodic service degradations. For ISPs (Internet Service Providers), handling quickly, simply,(More)
A number of studies show that most of current probing tools, for available bandwidth, exhibit low accuracy, and slow convergence in Home Networks. Some reasons of this behavior include the high queuing variability of probing flows, which is induced by multiple-access mechanisms, time-variant capacity links of hybrid paths, and the instability of beta(More)
Home network complexity is dramatically growing in terms of topology (devices and connectivity technologies) and services leading to increasingly challenging management issues. In this context, enabling a better visibility of home network traffic usage and performance is a crucial step to provide efficient selfcare and customer care. In this paper, we study(More)
