We propose a novel protection scheme called multicast protection through spanning paths (MPSP) for efficient multicast protection. Simulation results demonstrate the good performance of the proposed protection scheme in reducing the spare capacity for protection. 1. Introduction The rapid growth of optical networks employing dense wavelength-division(More)
Future wireless Internet is expected to consist of various heterogeneous wireless access networks with different properties to support different type of services. In order to improve the accuracy of the vertical handover decision for such heterogeneous networks, this paper proposes an adaptive multi-criteria vertical handover framework. This framework(More)
We previously identified and characterized a novel p53-regulated gene in mouse prostate cancer cells that was homologous to a human gene that had been identified in brain cancers and termed RTVP-1 or GLIPR. In this report, we document that the human RTVP-1 gene is also regulated by p53 and induces apoptosis in human prostate cancer cell lines. We show that(More)
Reliability has been well recognized as an important design objective in the design of modern high-speed networks. While traditional approaches offer either 100% protection in the presence of single link failure or no protection at all, connections in real networks may have multiple reliability requirements. The concept of differentiated reliability (DiR)(More)
— The advances in wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) technology are expected to facilitate bandwidth-intensive multicast applications. A single fiber failure in such a network, however, can disrupt the information dissemination to several destination nodes in a " light-tree "-based multicast session. Thus it is imperative to protect the multicast(More)
