During the last few years, users ail over the world have become more and more accustomed to the availability of broadband access. This has boosted the use of a wide variety both of established and recent multimedia applications. However, there are cases where it is too expensive for network providers to serve a community of users. This is typically the case(More)
Aggregate scheduling has been proposed as a solution for achieving scalability in largesize networks. However, in order to enable the provisioning of real-time services, such as video delivery or voice conversations, in aggregate scheduling networks, end-to-end delay bounds for single flows are required. In this paper, we derive per-flow end-to-end delay(More)
The IEEE 802.16 is a standard for broadband wireless communication in metropolitan area networks (MAN). To meet the QoS requirements of multimedia applications, the IEEE 802.16 standard provides four different scheduling services: unsolicited grant service (UGS), real-time polling service (rtPS), non-real-time polling service (nrtPS), and Best Effort (BE).(More)
IEEE 802.16e specifies a connection-oriented centralized medium access control (MAC) protocol, based on time division multiple access (TDMA), which adds mobility support to the MAC protocol defined by the IEEE 802.16 standard for fixed broadband wireless access. To this end, orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) is specified as the air(More)
In wireless mesh networks, the end-to-end throughput of traffic flows depends on the path length, i.e., the higher the number of hops, the lower becomes the throughput. In this paper, a fair end-to-end bandwidth allocation (FEBA) algorithm is introduced to solve this problem. FEBA is implemented at the medium access control (MAC) layer of single-radio,(More)
This paper thoroughly analyses the HIPERLAN MAC protocol, which is a standard for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) defined by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). Since the HIPERLAN MAC protocol belongs to the class of Carrier Sensing Multiple Access with Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA), in the first part of the paper we analyze the(More)

In this paper we address the problem of finding end-to-end delay bounds for single leaky-bucket shaped flows subject to FIFO multiplexing in tandems of rate-latency nodes. More specifically, we focus on a methodology, called the Least Upper Delay Bound (LUDB) method, which is based on Network Calculus. The latter has already been used for computing delay(More)
