The areas of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Information-Centric Networking (ICN) have gained increasing attention in the wider research community, while gaining credibility through corporate interest and investment. With the promise of SDN to simplify the deployment of alternative network architectures, the question arises how SDN and ICN could(More)
A key problem in networks that support advance reservations is the routing and time scheduling of connections with flexible starting time. In this paper we present a multicost routing and scheduling algorithm for selecting the path to be followed by such a connection and the time the data should start so as to minimize the reception time at the destination,(More)
The main promise of current research efforts in the area of Information-Centric Networking (ICN) architectures is to optimize the dissemination of information within transient communication relationships of endpoints. Efficient caching of information is key to delivering on this promise. In this paper, we look into achieving this promise from the angle of(More)
Keywords: Grid networks Centralized vs. distributed architecture Task scheduling Routing and data scheduling Online algorithms a b s t r a c t The management of Grid resources requires scheduling of both computation and communication tasks at various levels. In this study, we consider the two constituent sub-problems of Grid scheduling, namely: (i) the(More)
Recent research efforts in the area of future networks indicate Information-Centric Networking (ICN) as the dominant architecture for the Future Internet. The main promise of ICN is that of shifting the communication paradigm of the internetworking layer from machine endpoints to information access and delivery. Optimized content dissemination and efficient(More)
Policy management is a management paradigm that has been extensively studied for the case of fixed networks but limited work can be found for migrating it to mobile environments. It enables dynamic adaptation of the network behavior to current conditions based on high-level business and operational objectives. Publish/subscribe has become an important(More)
The deployment of small cells is expected to gain huge momentum in the near future, as a solution for managing the skyrocketing mobile data demand growth. Local caching of popular files at the small cell base stations has been recently proposed, aiming at reducing the traffic incurred when transferring the requested content from the core network to the(More)
In a publish/subscribe (pub/sub) network, message delivery is guaranteed for all connected subscribers at publish time. However, in a dynamic mobile scenario where users join and leave the network, it is important that content published at the time they are disconnected is still delivered when they reconnect from a different point. In this paper, we enhance(More)
