A Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is composed of distributed sensors with limited processing capabilities and energy restrictions. These unique attributes pose new challenges amongst which prolonging the WSN lifetime is one of the most important. Challenges are often tackled by a code-and-fix process that relies on low-level hardware and software information.(More)
Multiprocessor system models are extensively used in modelling transaction processing systems, nodes in communication networks, and flexible machine shops with groups of machines. Such systems clearly, are prone to breakdowns. Even if cover is provided with some probability c, there will be rebooting and/or reconfiguration delays to resume operation(More)
—Energy consumption of nodes is a crucial factor that constrains the networks life time for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). WSNs are composed of small sensors equipped with low-power devices, and have limited battery power supply. The main concern in existing architectural and optimisation studies is to prolong the network lifetime. The lifetime of the(More)
—Clustering techniques for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been extensively studied and they have proven to improve the network lifetime, a primary metric, used for performance evaluation of sensor networks. Although introduction of clustering techniques has the potential to reduce energy consumption and extend the lifetime of the network by decreasing(More)
— The main feature of the next generation wireless communication systems is the ability to establish ubiquitous and seamless access to various radio access technologies (RATs) and standards. For this reason the integration of cellular and wireless local area networks (WLANs) and performance evaluation of the interaction between these technologies is now an(More)
Multi-channel assignments are becoming the solution of choice to improve performance in single radio for wireless networks. Multi-channel allows wireless networks to assign different channels to different nodes in real-time transmission. In this paper, we propose a new approach, Multi-channel Distributed Coordinated Function (MC-DCF) which takes advantage(More)
