—Recently, operators have resorted to femtocell networks in order to enhance indoor coverage and quality of service since macro-antennas fail to reach these objectives. Nevertheless, they are confronted to many challenges to make a success of femtocells deployment. In this paper, we address the issue of resources allocation in femtocell networks using OFDMA(More)
—In this paper we address the problem of virtual network reconfiguration. In our previous work on virtual network embedding strategies, we found that most virtual network rejections were caused by bottlenecked substrate links while peak resource use is equal to 18%. These observations lead us to propose a new greedy Virtual Network Reconfiguration(More)
—In this paper, we address virtual network embedding problem. Indeed, our objective is to map virtual networks in the substrate network with minimum physical resources while satisfying its required QoS in terms of bandwidth, power processing and memory. In doing so, we minimize the reject rate of requests and maximize returns for the substrate network(More)
In this paper, we address the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) deployment issue. We assume that the observed area is characterized by the geographical irregularity of the sensed events. Formally, we consider that each point in the deployment area is associated a differentiated detection probability threshold, which must be satisfied by our deployment method.(More)

—This paper proposes a new joint power control and resource allocation algorithm in OFDMA femtocell networks. We consider both QoS constrained high-priority (HP) and best-effort (BE) users having different types of application and bandwidth requirements. Our objective is to minimize the transmit power of each femtocell, while satisfying a maximum number of(More)
