The dwindling number of women pursuing a degree in CS is a growing frustration for many countries around the globe, but in Malaysia female CS/IT students outnumber the males. What accounts for this dichotomy?
Power management is an important aspect of mobile computing. Previous works on power conservation have concentrated on the hardware approach. In this paper, we propose a different approach of power conservation strategy for mobile computers which is based on the concept of load sharing. User jobs are transferred from a mobile host to a fixed host to reduce… (More)
—Smartphones are now capable of supporting a wide range of applications, many of which demand an ever increasing computational power. This poses a challenge because smartphones are resource-constrained devices with limited computation power, memory, storage, and energy. Fortunately, the cloud computing technology offers virtually unlimited dynamic resources… (More)
— This paper presents comparison of different hierarchical (position and non-position based) protocols with respect to different mobility models. Previous work mainly focuses on static networks or at most a single mobility model. Using only one mobility model may not predict the behavior of routing protocol accurately. Simulation results show that mobility… (More)
Network simulation is the most useful and common methodology used to evaluate different network to-pologies without real world implementation. Network simulators are widely used by the research community to evaluate new theories and hypotheses. There are a number of network simulators, for instance, ns-2, ns-3, OMNET++, SWAN, OPNET, Jist, and GloMoSiM etc.… (More)
—Cloud computing has emerged as the leading paradigm for information technology businesses. Cloud computing provides a platform to manage and deliver computing services around the world over the Internet. Cloud services have helped businesses utilize computing services on demand with no upfront investments. The cloud computing paradigm has sustained its… (More)
While on-demand routing protocols have been optimized to use the aid of proxy nodes by considering the possibility of long-lived partitions due to intermittent connectivity, they do not consider the chances of using a proxy for a long distance between a pair of source and destination. In this paper, we introduce a Proxy-Assisted Routing (PART) for efficient… (More)
