Current TCP protocols have lower throughput performance in satellite networks mainly due to the effects of long propagation delays and high link error rates. In this paper, a new congestion control scheme called TCP-Peach is introduced for satellite networks. TCP-Peach is composed of two new algorithms, namely Sudden Start and Rapid Recovery, as well as the(More)
The software defined networking (SDN) paradigm promises to dramatically simplify network configuration and resource management. Such features are extremely valuable to network operators and therefore, the industrial (besides the academic) research and development community is paying increasing attention to SDN. Although wireless equipment manufacturers are(More)
In this paper SDN-WISE, a software defined networking (SDN) solution for wireless sensor networks, is introduced. Differently from the existing SDN solutions for wireless sensor networks, SDN-WISE is stateful and pursues two objectives: (i) to reduce the amount of information exchanged between sensor nodes and the SDN network controller, and (ii) to make(More)
Sensor networks are characterized by limited battery supplies. Due to this feature, communication protocols specifically designed for these networks should be aimed at minimizing energy consumption. To this purpose, the sensor's capability of transmitting with different power levels can be exploited. With this in mind, in this paper an integrated(More)

The main aim of this paper is to generalize and improve a recently proposed forwarding technique based on the Chinese Remainder Theorem (CRT). The proposed technique outperforms more traditional approaches in terms of both energy efficiency and fair distribution of energy consumption, and requires very few changes to the commonly used forwarding schemes for(More)
