This paper presents new algorithms for dynamic routing of bandwidth guaranteed tunnels, where tunnel routing requests arrive one by one and there is no a priori knowledge regarding future requests. This problem is motivated by the service provider needs for fast deployment of bandwidth guaranteed services. Offline routing algorithms cannot be used since(More)
We consider an overlay architecture where service providers deploy a set of service nodes (called MSNs) in the network to efficiently implement media-streaming applications. These MSNs are organized into an overlay and act as application-layer multicast forwarding entities for a set of clients. We present a decentralized scheme that organizes the MSNs into(More)
We present a new algorithm for routing of messages in ad-hoc networks where the nodes are energy-constrained. The routing objective is to maximize the total number of messages that can be successfully sent over the network without knowing any information regarding future message arrivals or message generation rates. From a theoretical perspective, we show(More)
In this paper, we consider the throughput modelling and fairness provisioning in CSMA/CA based ad-hoc networks. The main contributions are: firstly, a throughput model based on Markovian analysis is proposed for the CSMA/CA network with a general topology. Simulation investigations are presented to verify its performance. Secondly, fairness issues in(More)
In this paper, we address the rate control problem in a multi-hop random access wireless network, with the objective of achieving proportional fairness amongst the end-to-end sessions. The problem is considered in the framework of nonlinear optimization. Compared to its counterpart in a wired network where link capacities are assumed to be fixed, rate(More)
The question of providing throughput guarantees through distributed scheduling, which has remained an open problem for some time, is addressed in this paper. It is shown that a simple distributed scheduling strategy, maximal scheduling, attains a guaranteed fraction of the maximum throughput region in arbitrary wireless networks. The guaranteed fraction(More)
We address the question of providing throughput guarantees through distributed scheduling, which has remained an open problem for some time. We consider a simple distributed scheduling strategy, maximal scheduling, and prove that it attains a guaranteed fraction of the maximum throughput region in arbitrary wireless networks. The guaranteed fraction depends(More)
Multirate multicasting, where the receivers of a multicast group can receive service at different rates, is an efficient mode of data delivery for many real-time applications. In this paper, we address the problem of achieving rates that maximize the total receiver utility for multirate multicast sessions. This problem not only takes into account the(More)
We consider the problem of uplink/downlink scheduling in a multichannel wireless access point network where channel states differ across channels as well as users, vary with time, and can be measured only infrequently. We demonstrate that, unlike infrequent measurement of queue lengths, infrequent measurement of channel states reduce the maximum attainable(More)
