Communication technology now makes it possible to support high data transmission rates at relatively low cost. In particular, optical fiber can be used as the medium in local area networks with data rates in the range of 100 megabits per second. Unfortunately, local area network topologies and communication protocols that work well with lower speed media(More)
Currently there is no control for real-time traffic sources in IP networks. This is a serious problem because real-time traffic can not only congest the network but can also cause unfairness and starvation of TCP traffic. In this paper, a new rate control scheme, RCS, is introduced for real-time traffic in networks with high bandwidth-delay products and(More)
This paper proposes a new approach to detect rotated objects at distinct angles using the Viola-Jones detector. The use of additional Integral Images makes an approximation the Haar-like features for any given angle. The proposed approach uses different types of Haar-like features, including features that compute areas at 45 o , 26.5 o and 63.5 o of(More)
This paper describes an experiment to prototype a new way of conducting science by applying networking and distributed computing technologies to an Earth Science application. A combination of satellite, wireless, and terrestrial networking provided geologists at a remote field site with interactive access to supercomputer facilities at two NASA centers,(More)
Development of the Next Generation Internet requires the development of revolutionary applications as well as advances in networking technologies. This paper presents experiences in using the NREN testbed to prototype a col-laborative medical-imaging application. Technological requirements for this application include high-bandwidth reliable multicast and(More)
In modern systems local disk I/O has significantly lower bandwidth than network I/O. This has lead to the development of Storage Area Networks (SANs) often implemented with expensive, high bandwidth switching fabrics. With the development of Infiniband and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switching fabrics, high bandwidth I/O is becoming commoditised, but as yet is not(More)
