Wireless Mesh Networks represent nowadays’ new frontier of wireless networking technology. In fact, WMNs allow the extension of traditional wireless access networks through multihop relaying; this leads to the creation of easily deployable, flexible and reliable networks. WMNs have been largely studied through theoretical models and simulations, but the(More)
Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) have raised great interest in both academy and industry thanks to their flexibility, low cost and easy deployment characteristics. MobiMESH is a WMN implementation that provides a complete framework for analyzing, studying and testing the behavior of a mesh network in a real-life environment. MobiMESH includes seamless mobility(More)
The MESH-WISE project is aiming to address key fundamental issues in wireless mesh networking that span from fundamental performance characterization to prototyping heterogeneous-access mesh networking solutions for emergency response scenarios. In this paper we present the infrastructures that will be leveraged in this project and the latest results that(More)
Smart Environments are environments where heterogeneous wireless networks are implemented and connected together both in terms of networking and in terms of functionalities, thus providing an abstraction layer to higher level applications that can exploit the interplay of such technologies to obtain killer features. In order to obtain real advantages from(More)
The tremendous popularity of smart phones and electronic tablets has spurred the explosive growth of high-rate multimedia wireless services. To alleviate the huge infrastructure investment in the exponential growth of mobile traffic and improve local service flexibility, device-to-device (D2D) communications have been considered for the next generation(More)
We systematically observed the effects of lipoxygenase enzyme products (5-, 8-, 9-, 12-, and 15-HETE and leukotrienes (LT) C4, D4, and B4) on the external ocular inflammatory process in rabbits. Our results, using 1 and 10 micrograms enzymatic preparations topically applied to the conjunctiva, were consistent with the potent chemotactic activity of 12-HETE(More)
