The majority of today's Internet-based services are generally not concerned about the level of Quality of Service (QoS) presented to their users. For many such services, however, the QoS perceived by users is becoming a critical success factor. The main QoS attributes include those related to the service availability and timeliness. Ensuring them is(More)
Premium IP networks provide users with a portfolio of services, thanks to their intrinsic capability to perform a service creation process while relying on a QoS-enabled infrastructure. The most natural interface between users and Premium IP networks is represented by the Service Level Agreement (SLA). In order to allow an effective exploitation of such(More)
The verification and validation (V&V) of the controllers for complex mechatronic devices is an important step to assure performance and quality of the overall system. In particular, in the field of manufacturing of automatic packaging machines, it is common practice postpone the development of the control system until the mechanical part of the machine(More)
BACKGROUND Calcifications of atherosclerotic plaques represent a controversial issue as they either lead to the stabilization or rupture of the lesion. However, the cellular key players involved in the progression of the calcified plaques have not yet been described. The primary reason for this lacuna is that decalcification procedures impair protein and(More)

Quality of service in network communication is mainly assured by traffic management consisting in a variety of protocols and mechanisms whose role is to prevent the network from being congested. Traffic management has been a very active area of research for two decades following the conception of packet-switched integrated services networks, such as the(More)
