Ad-hoc networking, though an attractive solution for many applications, still has many unsolved issues, such as the hidden-terminal problem, flexible and prompt access, QoS provisioning, and efficient broadcast service. In this paper we present a MAC architecture able to solve the above issues in environments with no power consumption limitations, such as(More)
Bluetooth is a new low-cost wireless technology that is going to play an important role in communications among small electronic devices and the access to wired networking infrastructure. Bluetooth stations that communicate directly form a piconet. In a piconet one station has the role of master and the others are slaves. The access to the medium is based(More)
Classical coverage models, adopted for second-generation cellular systems, are not suited for planning universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS) base station (BS) location because they are only based on signal predictions and do not consider the traffic distribution, the signal quality requirements, and the power control (PC) mechanism. In this(More)
Software Defined Networking envisions smart centralized controllers governing the forwarding behavior of dumb low-cost switches. But are "dumb" switches an actual strategic choice, or (at least to some extent) are they a consequence of the lack of viable alternatives to OpenFlow as programmatic data plane forwarding interface? Indeed, some level of(More)
Ad-hoc networking is under evaluation for inter-vehicle communication architectures. In spite of the large existing literature, many problems generated by the peculiarity of this specific scenario are still unsolved. In this paper we present a novel MAC protocol, RR-ALOHA, able to guarantee a reliable single-hop broadcast communication in an ad-hoc network(More)
The channel assignment in cellular systems has the task of planning the reuse of available frequencies in a spectrum efficient way. A classical approach to frequency assignment problems, when applied to the frequency planning of cellular networks, does not enable this task to be performed in an efficient way, since it does not consider the cumulative effect(More)
The use of enhanced bandwidth estimation procedures within the congestion control scheme of TCP was proposed recently as a way of improving TCP performance over links affected by random loss. This paper first analyzes the problems faced by every bandwidth estimation algorithm implemented at the sender side of a TCP connection. Some proposed estimation(More)
In this paper novel optimization models are proposed for planning Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs), where the objective is to minimize the network installation cost while providing full coverage to wireless mesh clients. Our mixed integer linear programming models allow to select the number and positions of mesh routers and access points, while accurately(More)
Wireless Mesh networks (WMNs) can partially replace the wired backbone of traditional wireless access networks and, similarly, they require to carefully plan radio resource assignment in order to provide the same quality guarantees to traffic flows. In this paper we study the radio resource assignment optimization problem in Wireless Mesh Networks assuming(More)
