Despite its popularity, relatively little is known about the traffic characteristics of the Skype VoIP system and how they differ from other P2P systems. We describe an experimental study of Skype VoIP traffic conducted over a five month period, where over 82 million datapoints were collected regarding the population of online clients, the number of(More)
We present a dynamic joint source and channel coding adaptation algorithm for the AMR speech codec based on the ITU-T Emodel. This model takes both delay and packet loss into consideration. We address the problem of finding the optimal choice of source and channel bit rates given QoS information about the wired and wireless IP network and subject to(More)
An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a program that analyzes what happens or has happened during an execution and tries to find indications that the computer has been misused. A Distributed IDS (DIDS) consists of several IDS over a large network (s), all of which communicate with each other, or with a central server that facilitates advanced network(More)
— Location is an important feature for many applications , and wireless networks can better serve their clients by anticipating client mobility. As a result, many location predictors have been proposed in the literature, though few have been evaluated with empirical evidence. This poster reports on the results of the first extensive empirical evaluation of(More)
We propose an auxiliary strategy, called per-user forwarding, for locating users who move from place to place while using Personal Communications Services (PCS). The forwarding strategy augments the basic location strategy proposed in existing standards such as GSM and IS-41, with the objective of reducing network signalling and database loads in exchange(More)

Using wireless LAN technology for location estimation provides alternate means to enable location-based applications without investment in sensor network infrastructure and special hardware. However, the main drawback of wireless LAN-based location systems is <i>calibration</i> of signal strength as a function of location in spatially high-density, which(More)
We derive an empirical model for spatial registration patterns of mobile users as they move within a campus wireless local area network (WLAN) environment and register at different access points. Such a model can be very useful in a variety of simulation studies of the performance of mobile wireless systems, such as that of resource management and mobility(More)
