The large-scale deployment of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and the need for data aggregation necessitate efficient organization of the network topology for the purpose of balancing the load and prolonging the network lifetime. Clustering has proven to be an effective approach for organizing the network into a connected hierarchy. In this article, we(More)
We introduce the concepts of monitoring paths (MPs) and monitoring cycles (MCs) for unique localization of shared risk linked group (SRLG) failures in all-optical networks. An SRLG failure is a failure of multiple links due to a failure of a common resource. MCs (MPs) start and end at same (distinct) monitoring location(s). They are constructed such that(More)
In this paper, we consider the problem of fault localization in all-optical networks. We introduce the concept of monitoring cycles (MCs) and monitoring paths (MPs) for unique identification of single-link failures. MCs and MPs are required to pass through one or more monitoring locations. They are constructed such that any single-link failure results in(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of identifying constant additive link metrics using linearly independent monitoring cycles and paths. A monitoring cycle starts and ends at the same monitoring station, while a monitoring path starts and ends at distinct monitoring stations. We show that three-edge connectivity is a necessary and sufficient condition to(More)
We introduce the concepts of monitoring paths (MPs) and monitoring cycles (MCs) for unique localization of shared risk linked group (SRLG) failures in all-optical networks. An SRLG failure causes multiple links to break simultaneously due to the failure of a common resource. MCs (MPs) start and end at the same (distinct) monitoring location(s). They are(More)
IP fast reroute methods are used to recover packets in the data plane upon link failures. Previous work provided methods that guarantee failure recovery from at most two-link failures. We develop an IP fast reroute method that employs rooted arc-disjoint spanning trees to guarantee recovery from up to k-1 link failures in a k-edge-connected network. As(More)
Colored Trees (CTs) is an efficient approach to route packets along link-or node-disjoint paths in packet-switched networks. In this approach, two trees, namely red and blue, are constructed rooted at a drain such that the path from any node to the drain are link-or node-disjoint. For applications where both the trees are used simultaneously, it is critical(More)
In this paper, we study strategies for allocating and managing friendly jammers, so as to create virtual barriers that would prevent hostile eavesdroppers from tapping sensitive wireless communication. Our scheme precludes the use of any encryption technique. Applications include domains such as (i) protecting the privacy of storage locations where RFID(More)
When sensors are redundantly deployed, a subset of senors should be selected to actively monitor the field (referred to as a "cover"), while the rest of the sensors should be put to sleep to conserve their batteries. We consider networks in which all the nodes are not aware of their locations or the relative directions of neighbors. We develop several(More)
Traffic grooming in optical networks employing wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) has gained prominence due to the prevailing disparity between the user requirement and wavelength capacity. Nodes in an optical network get upgraded to the latest grooming technology slowly with time. Hence, WDM grooming networks are expected to employ heterogeneous(More)
