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 usage of Internet is rapidly increasing and a large part of the Internet traffic is generated by the World Wide Web (WWW) and the associated protocol HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP). Several important parameters that affect the performance of the WWW are bandwidth, scalability, and latency. To tackle these parameters and to improve the overall(More)
Over the last years, the Internet has evolved towards becoming the dominant platform for deploying real time and multimedia services. This evolution has had as a consequence that the selection of an appropriate server, proxy or super node with reference to some specific QoS parameter becomes of paramount importance. We consider in our paper the specific(More)
Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs) are emerging as a solution to increase the spectrum utilization by using unused or less used spectrum in radio environments. The basic idea is to allow unlicensed users access to licensed spectrum, under the condition that the interference perceived by the licensed users is minimal. New communication and networking(More)
The paper reports on recent developments and challenges focused on multimedia distribution over IP. These are subject for research within the research project ”Routing in Overlay Networks (ROVER)”, recently granted by the EuroNGI Network of Excellence (NoE). Participants in the project are Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Karlskrona, Sweden,(More)
The paper is about mobile Stream Control Transmission Protocol (mSCTP) and the problems related to simultaneous mobility. Simultaneous mobility is when the both endpoints of a communication session are mobile and they move at about the same time. mSCTP works well in the case of non-simultaneous mobility where the SCTP association is established between a(More)
In recent years, Internet has known an unprecedented growth, which, in turn, has lead to an increased demand for real-time and multimedia applications that have high Quality-of-Service (QoS) demands. This evolution lead to difficult challenges for the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to provide good QoS for their clients as well as for the ability to(More)
The paper is about a new routing protocol suggested for Cognitive Radio Networks (CRN) called Head Cluster IP Spectrum Aware Geographic (HC-IPSAG) and the associated performance. The protocol is an extension of the formerly advanced IPSAG routing protocol, for the case of larger CRNs. Splitting of the CRN domain into clusters is considered here. Each(More)
