Testing and deploying mobile wireless networks and applications are very challenging tasks, due to the network size and administration as well as node mobility management. Well known simulation tools provide a more flexible environment but they do not run in real time and they rely on models of the developed system rather than on the system itself.(More)
This paper describes an enhancement of content access Quality of Service in peer to peer (P2P) networks. The main idea is to use an erasure code to distribute the information over the peers. This distribution increases the users' choice on disseminated encoded data and therefore statistically enhances the overall throughput of the transfer. A performance(More)
In this paper we present the basic principles of a general architecture for distributed multimedia applications support over ATM-based networks. The architecture is aimed a t p r oviding the services, the mechanisms and the interactions required by multimedia applications. The architecture i s b ased on the quality of service and communication management(More)
This study addresses the end-to-end congestion control support over the DiffServ Assured Forwarding (AF) class. The resulting Assured Service (AS) provides a minimum level of throughput guarantee. In this context, this paper describes a new end-to-end mechanism for continuous transfer based on TCP-Friendly Rate Control (TFRC) originally proposed in [11].(More)
A Partial Order and partial reliable Connection (POC) is an end-to-end transport connection authorized to deliver objects in an order that can differ from the transmitted one. Such a connection is also authorized to lose some objects. The POC concept is motivated by the fact that heterogeneous best-effort networks such as Internet are plagued by unordered(More)
This article proposes the Implicit Packet Meta Header (IPMH) as a standard method to compute and represent common QoS properties of the Application Data Units (ADU) of multimedia streams using legacy and proprietary streams' headers (e.g. Real-time Transport Protocol headers). The use of IPMH by mechanisms located at different layers of the communication(More)
— This paper deals with the improvement of transport protocol behaviour over the DiffServ Assured Forwarding (AF) class. The Assured Service (AS) provides a minimum throughput guarantee that classical congestion control mechanisms, like window-based in TCP or equation-based in TCP-Friendly Rate Control (TFRC), are not able to use efficiently. In response,(More)
The design and development of a complex system requires an adequate methodology and efficient instrumental support in order to early detect and correct anomalies in the functional and non-functional properties of the tested protocols. Among the various tools used to provide experimental support for such developments, network emulation relies on real-time(More)
A Partial Order and partial reliable Connection (POC) is an end-to-end transport connection authorized to deliver objects in an order that can differ from the transmitted one. The service that this connection provides is also authorized to lose a number of objects. The POC approach establishes a conceptual link between both connectionless best-effort (CL)(More)
