IEEE 802.16e based WIMAX is a promising technology for broadband wireless access (BWA) because of its high scalability, large coverage area, high data rates and low cost of system deployment. Unlike wireless Local Area Networks (LANs), WIMAX network supports Quality of Service (QoS) to different types of network traffic and has introduced several mechanisms(More)
DVB-S2 is a second-generation standard for satellite transmissions, developed to improve the performance of DVBS. Recently, research efforts have been devoted to extend this standard for mobile usage. In this paper we consider a scenario composed of a Ku-band GEO bent-pipe satellite, a gateway and some mobile users. The interest is here in investigating the(More)
It is well-known that clustering partitions network into logical groups of nodes in order to achieve energy efficiency and to enhance dynamic channel access in cognitive radio through cooperative sensing. While the topic of energy efficiency has been well investigated in conventional wireless sensor networks, the latter has not been extensively explored. In(More)
In this paper, we propose a feedback implosion algorithm delays the segment until the probability of suppression (FIS) algorithm that reduces the volume of feedback retransmission for the segment is less than a specified traffic from receivers in a multicast group over a geostationary upperbound value. The paper shows that the scheduling policy satellite(More)
Satellite systems are a valid alternative to cover wide areas on the earth and to provide broadband communications to mobile and fixed users. Satellite systems should be able to provide to mobile users the same access characteristics of the terrestrial counterparts. This paper investigates packet scheduling aspects for Satellite Universal Mobile(More)
Mobile wireless sensor networks (MWSNs) comprise a collection of mobile sensor nodes with confined and finite resources. They commonly operate in hostile environments such as battle fields and surveillance zones. Owing to their operating nature, MWSNs are often unattended and generally are not equipped with tamper-resistant tools. With little effort, an(More)
