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)
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 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)
problems of transport protocols in satellite IP networks along with the most recent solutions proposed in the literature. Non-real-time applications use Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). Current TCP schemes have throughput problems in networks with long propagation delays and relatively high link error rates such as satellite networks [1]. TCP throughput(More)
Infostation communication is an innovative communication paradigm thought to provide connectivity in isolated areas. In infostation communications, wireless ports are deployed to act as gateways between the remote users and the communication infrastructure. However, users are allowed to exchange data with the infrastructure only when in the coverage area of(More)
