This paper presents a comparative study of two well-known network simulators: OPNET Modeler and Ns2. Other studies in this area have generally been confined to just one simulator. The motivation of this paper is to provide a guide to researchers undertaking packet-level network simulations. The simulator outputs were compared to the output from a live(More)
Developing applications, particularly real-time applications, for wireless vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) requires a reasonable assurance of the likely performance of the network, at the least in terms of packet loss ratios and end-to-end delay. Because wireless propagation strongly influences performance, particularly in an urban environment, this(More)
A high-performance Karhunen-Loève transform for multi-spectral imagery suitable for remote sensing applications has been prototyped on a platform FPGA, through hardware compilation onto a PC-based development board. Performance estimates suggest that the design will outperform implementation on a high-end microprocessor, given due attention to I/O(More)
This paper demonstrates that Growth codes, based on Raptor channel coding, allow incremental protection of H.264 video codec data-partitioned Network Adaption Layer units. When combined with increased protection of video reference frames, in an ADSL erasure channel up to 10 dB in video quality (PSNR) can be gained through this scheme compared to equal error(More)
This paper seeks to establish under what conditions (mobility, network size, wireless channel) multi-source video streaming is feasible across a wireless Vehicular Ad Hoc Network (VANET). Overlay networks with multiple sources have proven to be robust, distributed solutions to multimedia transport, including streaming. To achieve video streaming over a(More)
Packet-level Forward Error Control (FEC) for video streaming over a wireless network has received comparatively limited investigation, because of the delay introduced by the need to assemble a group of packets. However, packet-level interleaving when combined with FEC presents a remedy to time-correlated error bursts, though it can further increase delay if(More)
Early detection of network congestion is important in streaming video, as packet loss has a recurring impact on video quality. Packet delay itself, rather than packet loss, can give early notice of congestion provided it can accurately reflect the congestion level at the network path’s tight link. In this paper, the one-way delay of video packets(More)
Prior research on wireless multicast video streaming has addressed the risk of feedback implosion when providing adaptive forward error correction (FEC). This approach has not been adopted by providers, who may either stick to unicast streaming or use a sufficient level of application layer FEC to avoid the need for adaptation. Instead in this paper, an(More)
This paper considers the design of a reusable software template for a par allel data farm which uses demand based load balancing A feature of the farm is integral instrumentation A design example is given for a hybrid processor message passing machine the Paramid in which monitoring is accomplished by an instrumented interface program Other aspects of the(More)
