In this paper, we consider two fairness problems (downlink/uplink fairness and fairness among flows in the same direction) that arise in the infrastructure WLAN. We propose a virtual queue management approach, named VQ-RED to address the fairness problems. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach by conducting a series of simulations. The results(More)
Inspired by the migratory behavior in the nature, a novel particle swarm optimization algorithm based on particle migration (MPSO) is proposed in this work. In this new algorithm, the population is randomly partitioned into several sub-swarms, each of which is made to evolve based on particle swarm optimization with time varying inertia weight and(More)
Studies of the performance of interrupt-driven operating systems in high-speed networks have brought forth the problem of receive livelock. Device hybrid interrupt-polling and interrupt coalescing are two common techniques used in general-purpose operating systems to mitigate this problem. Adaptive schemes based on local knowledge have been proposed for(More)
The Assured Forwarding (AF) based service in a Differentiated Services (DiffServ) network fails to provide bandwidth assurance among competing aggregates under certain conditions, for example, where there exists a large disparity in the round-trip times, packet sizes, or target rates of the aggregates, or there exist non-adaptive aggregates. Several(More)
The virtual network embedding (VNE) problem deals with the embedding of virtual network (VN) requests in an underlying physical (substrate network) infrastructure. When both the node and link constraints are considered, the VN embedding problem is NP-hard, even in the offline case. The genetic algorithm (GA) is an excellent approach to solving complex(More)
Recent research studies in the over-provisioned networks have shown that the Assured Forwarding (AF) service in the current Differentiated Services (Diffserv) architecture fails to provide bandwidth assurance in some situations. This paper focus on the situation where adaptive and non-adaptive traffic coexist in the same real queue at routers and the buffer(More)
