This paper proposes a novel service differentiation mechanism utilizing optical buffers in transparent optical networks. We first introduce fiber delay line (FDL)-based optical buffers and propose a hybrid shared optical buffered node. Based on the proposed buffer, diverse service requirements can be satisfied by assigning different priorities on accessing(More)
Organisms must be able to respond to low oxygen in a number of homeostatic and pathological contexts. Regulation of hypoxic responses via the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) is well established, but evidence indicates that other, HIF-independent mechanisms are also involved. Here, we report a hypoxic response that depends on the accumulation of lactate, a(More)
— Performance of the IEEE 802.16e power management is mainly affected by two operating parameters: the minimum sleep interval (Tmin) and the maximum sleep interval (Tmax), in sleep-mode operation. To enhance the performance, this letter proposes a new power saving mechanism, which adaptively controls these parameters by considering the request period of(More)
—The 802.16e power management helps to increase the lifetime of Mobile Subscriber Stations (MSSs) by reducing their energy consumption, but this reduction results in Medium Access Control (MAC) Service Data Unit (SDU) response delay. Hence, both energy consumption and MAC SDU response delay are important performance metrics; however, they have a trade-off(More)
SUMMARY Sleep-mode operation of a Mobile Subscriber Station (MSS) in IEEE 802.16e effectively saves energy consumption; however, it induces frame response delay. In this letter, we propose an algorithm to quickly find the optimal value of the final sleep interval in sleep-mode in order to minimize energy consumption with respect to a given frame response(More)
