The European Regulator Group (ERG) defines Bitstream Access Service as a wholesale service offered by a broadband network operator with significant market power to an Internet Service Provider, and identifies it as a market subject to regulation. This paper develops a cost model for the Bitstream Access Service under xDSL technology, following the(More)
Currently, network operators and Internet service providers are offering “Triple Play” products integrating services with different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. It is leading to Internet traffic with strong service integration under an all-IP-based broadband network platform. However, new multimedia service offers require individual QoS guarantees(More)
Despite the increasing usage of mobile communications, strengthened by the growing penetration of smartphones, end users seem to be concerned about the potential health risks of the electromagnetic fields (EMF) induced by such technologies, according to the latest statistics gathered by the Eurobarometer. The Low EMF Exposure Networks (LEXNET) project aims(More)
Peer-To-Peer (P2P) traffic represents almost 60 % of Internet traffic, and involves personal computers working during periods of full-time operation (Always-ON ). The rational use of shared resources opens up the possibility of reducing energy consumption associated with this type of operation. This paper analyses the results previously obtained from(More)
LEXNET project, funded by the European Commission, is introducing new concepts for the assessment of the population EMF exposure. It also aims at evaluating the capability of future technologies to reduce this EMF exposure. The platform presented in this paper is an original tool for a continuous measurement of the multi-band downlink Electric Field(More)
This paper presents Reward Based Routing Protocol (RBRP), a novel routing protocol for wireless mesh networks, that aims at reducing and fairly distributing the Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Exposure caused by wireless transmissions. The basis of this protocol is a reward-based scheme in which intermediate nodes forward packets and receive a reward(More)
