This article surveys the literature on analyses of mobile traffic collected by operators within their network infrastructure. This is a recently emerged research field, and, apart from a few outliers, relevant works cover the period from 2005 to date, with a sensible densification over the last three years. We provide a thorough review of the(More)
Inter-vehicular communications are considered to be an efficient proactive approach for reducing the number and the consequences of road accidents. After a series of remarkable standardisation efforts, one of the last points needing to be addressed in order for safety vehicular networks to become a reality is the scalability problem of the CSMA-based medium(More)
Vehicular ad hoc networks can play an important role in enhancing transportation efficiency and improving road safety. Therefore, direct vehicle-to-vehicle communications are considered as one of the main building blocks of a future Intelligent Transportation System. The success and availability of IEEE 802.11 radios made this technology the most probable(More)
Adding communication capabilities to vehicles and road infrastructure has become a major goal in the intelligent transportation systems industry. The IEEE 802.11p amendment has specially been conceived for the Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) architecture. In this paper we study the performance of this standard by the means of extensive(More)
Cellular communications are undergoing significant evolutions in order to accommodate the load generated by increasingly pervasive smart mobile devices. Dynamic access network adaptation to customers' demands is one of the most promising paths taken by network operators. To that end, one must be able to process large amount of mobile traffic data and(More)
Contention-based protocols for Medium Access Control (MAC) in Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANET) are currently under development in several standardization organizations. The availability and maturity of the IEEE 802.11 technology makes it the first choice for the future vehicle-to-vehicle communications. At the same time, safety applications in a vehicular(More)
