Telecommunication switches implement overload controls to maintain call throughput and delay at acceptable levels during periods of high load. Existing work has mostly focused on controls under sustained overload–they do not meet the demands of modern telecommunication systems where the increased number of services and mobile subscribers often creates fast(More)
Ad-hoc sensor networks need to create their own network after deployment. Various schemes have been suggested for sensors to create a better coverage pattern than if they are randomly deployed. A better coverage pattern translates into a geometry of having disks cover an area completely and even redundantly. In this paper, we present two coverage(More)
We propose multi-class signaling overload control algorithms, for telecommunication switches, that are robust against different input traffic patterns and system upgrades. In order to appropriately measure the system load when several classes of signaling traffic are present, we first introduce the concept of equivalent system load measure that converts the(More)
