As ICT services are becoming more ubiquitous and mobile and access technologies grow to be more heterogeneous and complex, we are witnessing the increasing importance of two related needs: (i) users need to be able to configure and per-sonalize their services with minimal effort; (ii) operators desire to engineer and manage their networks easily and(More)
This paper shows a novel self-organizing approach for routing datagrams in ad hoc networks, called Distributed Ant Routing (DAR). This approach belongs to the class of routing algorithms inspired by the behavior of the ant colonies in locating and storing food. The effectiveness of the heuristic algorithm is supported by mathematical proofs and demonstrated(More)
—In this paper, we present a solution to control automatically a wireless access network and we focus on load balancing target. The reference scenario is that of a single administrative domain that offers a heterogeneous wireless access. We propose a monitoring procedure able to track the access network context, i.e., the current state of resources, the(More)
Internet has different meanings depending essentially on the expectations about the future connec-tivity, services, and time scale. The following definitions, some of them evoked from the current use of the Internet, are complementary , each highlighting different aspects of the expected future network. Internet of Communities: This term refers to the(More)
—In this paper, we propose an off-path extension of the IETF Next Steps in Signaling (NSIS) protocol suite. Our proposal updates the NSIS transport layer. This way, the design of an NSIS-compliant application can leverage it without having to deal with low level signaling transport issues. In particular, we propose an extension of the General Internet(More)
—This letter proposes a new architectural solution for service creation in JSLEE-compliant platforms, where service business logic can be separated by implementation issues and designed by non JSLEE experts. The novelty consists of integrating a workflow engine inside the development environment of the JSLEE platform, thus allowing simplified management in(More)
