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)
This paper presents a software platform, named BiNS2, able to simulate diffusion-based molecular communications with drift inside blood vessels. The contribution of the paper is twofold. First a detailed description of the simulator is given, under the software engineering point of view, by highlighting the innovations and optimizations introduced. Their(More)
In this paper we propose a functional mapping between Java Call Control (JCC) and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). We show its effectiveness in enabling easy service design and implementation through experimental results. For this purpose, we have implemented a JCC-SIP Resource Adaptor for a Jain Service Logic Execution Environment (JSLEE). In particular,(More)
Within the activities of the Java APIs for Integrated Networks (JAIN), the Java community offers a set of standard frameworks and open protocol APIs to create advanced telecommunications services. However, recent works have pointed out that Java-based implementations of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) stack, the fundamental signalling protocol in the(More)
This article shows an autonomic management solution based on the recently defined programmable node architecture NetServ. The article starts with a general description of the classical network management requirements and their adaptation to the expected network evolution. After a description of the major issues characterizing the management of the expected(More)
In this paper, we present a communication protocol between a pair of biological nanomachines, transmitter and receiver, built upon molecular communications in an aqueous environment. In our proposal , the receiver, acting as a control node, sends a connection setup signal to the transmitter, which stokes molecules, to start molecule transmission. The(More)
