— We consider the problem of finding a lightpath assignment for a given set of communication requests on a multifiber WDM optical network with wavelength translators. Given such a network, and w the number of wavelengths available on each fiber, k the number of fiber per link and c the number of partial wavelength translation available on each node, our(More)
Network measurement is essential for assessing performance issues, identifying and locating problems. Two common strategies are the passive approach that attaches specific devices to links in order to monitor the traffic that passes through the network and the active approach that generates explicit control packets in the network for measurements. One of(More)
—In this paper, we address the problem of computing the transport capacity of Wireless Mesh Networks dedicated to Internet access. Routing and transmission scheduling have a major impact on the capacity provided to the clients. A cross-layer optimization of these problems allows the routing to take into account contentions due to radio interferences. We(More)
This paper addresses the natural relaxation of the path coloring problem, in which one needs to color directed paths on a symmetric directed graph with a minimum number of colors, in such a way that paths using the same arc of the graph have different colors. This classic combinatorial problem finds applications in the minimization of the number of(More)
Assuming a given network topology and a routing protocol, this work is focused on the capacity evaluation of routing protocols based on either a self-organization scheme or a flat approach. To reach this goal, we propose to use linear-programming formulation to model radio resource sharing as linear constraints. Four models are detailed to evaluate the(More)
—In this paper, we study multifiber optical networks with Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). Assuming that the lightpaths use the same wavelength from source to destination, we extend the definition of the well-known Wavelength Assignment Problem (WAP), to the case where there are k fibers per link, and w wavelengths per fiber are available: This(More)

The aim of this paper is to design efficient gathering algorithms (data collection) in a Base Station of a wireless multi hop grid network when interferences constraints are present. We suppose the time is slotted and that during one time slot (step) each node can transmit to one of its neighbors at most one data item. Each device is equipped with a half(More)
