Routing protocol is taking a vital role in the modern communication networks. A routing protocol is a protocol which is responsible to determine how routers communicate with each other and forward the packets through the optimal path to travel from a source node to a destination node. Among the routing protocols, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol… (More)
The paper reports on a modeling and evaluation study of session characteristics of BitTorrent traffic. BitTorrent is a second generation Peer-to-Peer (P2P) application recently developed as an alternative to the classical client-server model to reduce the load burden on content servers and networks. Results are reported on measuring, modeling and analysis… (More)
— The paper reports on recent developments and challenges in reliable multicast communication, with special focus on reliable multicast communication at the application layer. The foundation of reliable multicast communication is given by several components, which are multicast communication, congestion control and error control. Our paper is providing a… (More)
The unifying concept underlying frac-tals, chaos and power laws is self-similarity. Self-similarity, or invariance against changes in scale or size, is an attribute of many laws of nature and innumerable phenomena in the world around us. Self-similarity is, in fact, one of the decisive symmetries that shapes our universe and our efforts to comprehend it.
Over the last years, we have witnessed a rapid deployment of real-time applications on the Internet as well as many research works about Quality of Service (QoS), in particular IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4). The inevitable exhaustion of the remaining IPv4 address pool has become progressively evident. As the evolution of Internet Protocol (IP)… (More)
— The paper reports on a measurement infrastructure developed at the Blekinge Institute of Technology (BIT) with the purpose to do traffic measurements and analysis on Peer-to-Peer (P2P) traffic. The measurement methodology is based on using application logging as well as link-layer packet capture. This offers the possibility to measure application layer… (More)
— The paper 1 reports on in-depth measurements and analysis of Gnutella signaling traffic collected at the Blekinge Institute of Technology (BIT), Karlskrona, Sweden. The measurements are based on a week-long packet trace collected with help of the well-known tcpdump application. Furthermore, a novel approach has been used to measure and analyze Gnutella… (More)
