Code updates, such as those for debugging purposes, are frequent and expensive in the early development stages of wireless sensor network applications. We propose AdapCode, a reliable data dissemination protocol that uses adaptive network coding to reduce broadcast traffic in the process of code updates. Packets on every node are coded by linear combination(More)
—We consider the problem of LTE network self organization and optimization of resource allocation. One particular challenge for LTE systems is that, by applying OFDMA, a transmission may use multiple resource blocks scheduled over the frequency and time. There are three key components involved in the resource allocation and network optimization: resource(More)
Clients in wireless networks may have per-packet delay constraints on their traffic. Further, in contrast to wireline networks, the wireless medium is subject to fading. In such a time-varying environment, we consider the system problem of maximizing the total utility of clients, where the utilities are determined by their long-term average rates of being(More)
— We consider the problem of real-time communication with delay constraints. In earlier work it has been shown that a certain weighted-debt policy is feasibility-optimal in the sense that if any scheduling policy can satisfy the throughput-with-deadline requirements of all the clients, then the weighted-debt policy can do so. This raises the interesting(More)
Detection, identification, and tracking (DIT) problems that arise in applications such as the protection of people and the environment against radiational, biological, and chemical plumes, can be solved by combining the modalities of sensor and cyber networks. The sensor network provides information about physical space activities, such as the locations and(More)
—We study the problem of scheduling periodic real-time tasks so as to meet their individual minimum reward requirements. A task generates jobs that can be given arbitrary service times before their deadlines. A task then obtains rewards based on the service times received by its jobs. We show that this model is compatible to the imprecise computation models(More)
We develop a general approach for designing scheduling policies for real-time traffic over wireless channels. We extend prior work, which characterizes a real-time flow by its traffic pattern, delay bound, timely throughput requirement, and channel reliability, to allow clients to have different deadlines and allow a variety of channel models. In(More)
Providing differentiated Quality of Service (QoS) over unreliable wireless channels is an important challenge for supporting several future applications. We analyze a model that has been proposed to describe the QoS requirements by four criteria: traffic pattern, channel reliability, delay bound, and throughput bound. We study this mathematical model and(More)
A challenging problem in multi-band multi-cell self-organized wireless systems, such as multi-channel Wi-Fi networks, femto/pico cells in 3G/4G cellular networks, and more recent wireless networks over TV white spaces, is of distributed resource allocation. This involves four components: channel selection, client association, channel access, and client(More)
