This paper presents C-MAC, a new MAC protocol designed to achieve high-throughput bulk communication for dataintensive sensing applications. C-MAC exploits concurrent wireless channel access based on empirical power control and physical interference models. Nodes running C-MAC estimate the level of interference based on the physical(More)
Multi-channel design has received significant attention for low-power wireless networks (LWNs), such as 802.15.4-based wireless sensor networks, due to its potential of mitigating interference and improving network capacity. However, recent studies reveal that the number of orthogonal channels available on commodity wireless platforms is small, which(More)
Interference modeling is crucial for the performance of numerous WSN protocols such as congestion control, link/channel scheduling, and reliable routing. In particular, understanding and mitigating interference becomes increasingly important for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) as they are being deployed for many data-intensive applications such as(More)
Information centric networks (ICNs) allow content objects to be cached within the network, so as to provide efficient data delivery. Existing works on in-network caches mainly focus on minimizing the redundancy of caches to improve the cache hit ratio, which may not lead to significant bandwidth saving. On the other hand, it could result in too frequent(More)
The increasing demand for media-rich content has driven many efforts to redesign the Internet architecture. As one of the major candidates, information-centric network (ICN) has attracted significant attention, where in-network cache is a key component in different ICN architectures. In this paper, we propose a novel framework for optimal cache management(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are increasingly deployed for mission-critical applications such as emergency management and health care, which impose stringent requirements on the communication performance of WSNs. To support these applications, it is crucial to model and measure the effect of wireless interference, which is the major factor that limits(More)
Information-centric networking, ICN, is a promising technology for future Internet design, with which a user can directly obtain a content object by its name (or identification), without specifying the location of the content object. In recent years, various ICN architectures have been proposed, and they differ significantly in terms of naming, routing,(More)
Herein, we first reported a facile synthesis method for fabrication of highly photoluminescent carbon quantum dots (CQDs) using sodium alginate as the carbon source and histidine as both the nitrogen source and functional monomer by one-pot hydrothermal synthesis. The as-prepared CQDs gave a high quantum yield of 32%. By employing the new CQDs and rhodamine(More)
